Gustavus students Chloe Shaw (’19) and Hanna Albers (’19), working above the clouds at 16,000 feet on Volcán Cayambe, Ecuador, show off their crampon style after installing this glacier melt sensor earlier this month. The two are in Ecuador for a January field season with Prof. Jeff La Frenierre to study tropical glacier response to climate change.
