Matt Nolan’s artic research on climate change

Matt Nolan is since 10 years professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. He spends most of his time studying the changes in glaciers and his projects range from hydrology, limnology, and science outreach, to glaciology, which is his favorite. He spends about 6 weeks per year in research on the field in arctic Alaska and Siberia, requiring several months of organization and planning. He manages to include his family in the researches and preparations, so that they never separate.
