Moved back over to the West Coast to Franz Josef Glacier to join up with George Denton’s mapping team to survey and sample some moraines in the area. We spent a day digging at the base of a moraine extracting wood for radiocarbon dating. The wood obtained from this site will hopefully provide additional, more precise ages to constrain the timing of Late Glacial ice advance in the region. We are also spending the next few days finishing the sampling of higher altitude sites in the area that we were unable to do earlier on in the season due to weather conditions.
