In the Footsteps of Forbes: Following his travels through the Alps of the Dauphine


Currently on leave in the Alps following the path outlined in the Jouranals of the early glaciologist James Forbes who explored the region of the Dauphine Alps around Mount Pelvoux and La Meije in the early 19th century. His notes and reflections make an interesting comparative study of the current condition of the glaciers in the region as well as those in the more heavily studied area around the Mer de Glace.

....a full post and paper on this is forthcoming in the coming weeks....
