JIRP stewards a number of ongoing data collection efforts on the Juneau Icefield. We provide these datasets for public use. Please cite them appropriately.

Maintaining each of these datasets requires extensive pre-season planning, long (and often uncomfortable) days in the field, and hours of data analysis. At JIRP, much of this work is done on a volunteer basis. If you’d like to donate to support these efforts, please see our Support Us page.
