Kangerlussuaq Field School
JSEP students spend two weeks at the Kangerlussuaq Science Field School experiencing polar science first hand.
Students learn about and participate in polar science alongside researchers and educators at field stations located in the tundra region of Kangerlussuaq, in western Greenland. The Kangerlussuaq Science Support International facility is a hub for research in the area and a resource for showcasing international, collaborative science.
Participants in the Kangerlussuaq Science Field School live in dormitory-style housing and share in cooking and cleaning responsibilities. The Field School is led by Greenland and supported by the government, and assisted by Dartmouth faculty and graduate students with experience in Greenland.
