Khumbu glaciers outreach leaflets

In autumn of last year Scott Watson of the University of Leeds, and headed off again into the Khumbu for his PhD research, and he had the great idea to make a couple of  copies of a laminated factsheet about the Khumbu Glacier that is the focus of his study. These he left in a number of lodges in the surrounding villages.

I love the idea of getting information about what research is being undertaken on the glaciers there, and what is being found out, directly to both local residents and visitors to the region, so I quickly jumped on Scotts bandwagon and made a second factsheet for the Ngozumpa glacier, which Scott kindly dropped off for me in the Gokyo valley.
