To celebrate the three year anniversary of our project, we are releasing two behind-the-scenes videos filmed during our field campaigns! It has been such a job to re-live these moments in the field, especially in these strange times that do not allow us to do what we love: fieldwork! Here is the link to the spring campaign (episode 1) and click on the button below for episode 2!
WHAT'S NEXT FOR GLACIERS ON THE MOVE?
March 23nd, 2020
Now that our first exhibition at the Svalbard Museum has been successfully displayed, we are looking for new opportunities to make our surging glaciers travel. We already are having opportunities in Austria and Norway, if you are a museum and could be interested in our exhibition please contact us! We would love to talk to you about the possibility of having our work displayed at your institution.
SURGING GLACIERS ON FRENCH TV!
March 22nd, 2020
A few months ago Heïdi met the team from Sur Le Front, a new series of documentaries presented by journalist Hugo Clément. The documentary focuses on how glaciers around the world react to climate change, and more specifically on the women and men are on the frontline, fighting to preserve these glaciers. Heïdi took the team to Recherchebreen, a glacier that is currently surging in Svalbard.
OUR EXHIBITION AT THE NORTHERNMOST MUSEUM ON EARTH!
October 6th, 2019
Our exhibition is now on display at the Svalbard Museum! The opening yesterday was a huge success and we would like to sincerely thank everyone who came!
A big thank you to the Svalbard Museum and to all of you who followed our live stream on Facebook!
Thank you to the Svalbard folkehøgskole and Alta folkehøgskole for visiting us in the morning, and for all your great questions.
The exhibition will be in place at the museum until the end of December :) Plenty of time to see it during the dark season.
A special thanks to Silvia Galli, Sophie Cordon and Yann Rashid for your help with the opening!

It is Heidi's time to tell us how she feels about the conclusion of the first part of this project, 4 days before the opening of the exhibition at the Svalbard Museum!
"It feels pretty surreal to think that about 2 years of work will be revealed in a few days. I am so proud of the work we have achieved. There's a little bit for everyone, whether you are interested in the Science, the Photography, the drone shots, the sounds of glaciers, our exhibition will be a cocktail of different media. Our exhibition opening will be our chance to thank all of those who have helped us, and there are so many! It will be great to celebrate with them all and we certainly hope that they will be happy with our work. I really feel that these types of projects have a huge potential. There are so many ways we can communicate our science, and Glaciers On The Move is just one of them. Can't wait to be saturday! Do not miss our live feed on our facebook page, and watch this space for loads of updates!"

The exhibition is opening Soon! David Wrangborg, photographer and co-leader of Glaciers On The Move shares with us his impressions:
"I’m very excited to finally unveil the results of the work we have put in Glaciers on the Move, up to this point, in an exhibition. The dedicated work on an exhibition has been a new experience and challenge in my photographic endeavor. The camera usually mostly follows me along into the nature and wilderness and I capture the moments as they are presented to me. This project has forced me to be more focused on one subject and try to capture a more complete collection of a phenomenon. This has been both challenging and fun. It has also driven me into taking photos that are a bit outside my normal style. Both in terms of composition, where for example the foreground has been allowed more space than in my earlier work, and in a technical sense, where the use of a drone is the foremost example. I’m proud of the work I have achieved and look forward to present it to Longyearbyen's inhabitants as well as to the visitors."
NEW RESEARCH ON SURGE-TYPE GLACIERS!
September 29th 2019
Heidi Sevestre has just co-authored a new study on surging glacier, and the results can be found in the Journal of Glaciology!
In a few words, this study explains why most glaciers do not surge, while only a small minority surge. It's all about that heat!
September 7th 2019
It’s happening! 1 month to go!
Come and meet us for the opening of the exhibition at the Svalbard Museum (Kunsthall) on the 5th of October!
