(April 8, 2019) – Writer-editor Emily Moynihan, second from left, speaks with Marissa Torres, research general engineer; Amelia Menke, civil engineer; and Michelle Michaels, physical scientist — as well as with Dartmouth University intern, Isabel Boettcher. The topic of discussion is the Greenland Inland Traverse, an effort that Boettcher has been involved with. Funded by the National Science Foundation, GrIT is a two-month-long, 1,400-mile, round-trip traverse operation to transport thousands of pounds of equipment, fuel and supplies to resupply science stations on the Greenland Ice Sheet. The conversation is taking place at the Bring-Your-Own-Mug kickoff event for National Library Week at the ERDC-CRREL library. The ERDC library features 300,000+ items in the collection - 28,000+ online journals - 34,000+ online books & reports. erdclibrary@ask-a-librarian.info | 601.501.7632 - text | search > ERDC Library
