Using steam, Dr. Gino Casassa and Dr. Rolf Killian hurriedly drill into the ice of the Lengua glacier as snow begins to fall near the top of the Gran Campo Nevado ice field. The scientists planted plastic poles deep into the ice to measure movement of the glacier and ice loss through the summer season. Information gathered from weather stations posted around the area, when matched with data on the glacier's size, will add insight into why the glaciers of the Gran Campo Nevado are stable. Others in the region are rapidly receding.
