Stable Isotope Lab manager Bruce Vaughn describes the international 2015 expedition to drill an ice core through the Renland Ice Cap, Greenland, in a video by student journalist Paul McDivitt. Bruce’s conversation is punctuated by footage from the field, taken by clamping a GoPro camera to a drone, the wing of a plane, and the drill mount.
