BBC and other press coverage of a recent field campaign

A recent field expedition to the Khumbu Glacier by a team of researchers from the University of Leeds and the University of Sheffield was covered by the BBC. The team confirmed satellite observations that several supraglacial ponds down the easterly side of the Khumbu Glacier were coalescing to form a larger glacial lake, similar to other glaciers in the region. The Khumbu is the highest glacier in the world and is used by mountaineers for access to Mount Everest. 

Other press coverage included The Washington Post, Men's Journal, and Atlas Obscura
