All-Canadian team summits Mount LoganAn all-Canadian team summited Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan on May 18, 2021. The expedition had been postponed a year due to COVID-19, and their goal wasn’t necessarily just to summit. It was an interdisciplinary scientific expedition whose aim was to explore climate change on the 5959-metre peak. Their efforts included ice core extraction, remeasuring the summit’s elevation, and repeat photography, which is when a photo is taken from the exact same location as a historic one. Supported by the Royal Canadian Geographic Society, their goal is to advance scientists’ knowledge about climate change by looking back into Earth’s climatological past.
