Expedition Sponsors

Our most sincere thanks go out all of our sponsors for their generosity and efforts that has helped make this expedition possible:

Thank you to Tentipi who kindly sponsored a Safir 9 to BSES for use on this expedition. The leader team highly recommend this tent for it's stability, ease of erection and practical use in testing conditions.

Leica Geosystems are one of the World's foremost providers of solutions for mapping, surveying and monitoring. Leica have generously loaned BSES an RTK DGPS system for use in our glacial mapping project.

The exploration team will be taking Primula squeezy cheese on their expedition. Due to Primula's convenient packaging, the cheese can be consumed straight from the tube and caried easily.

A leading supplier of GIS software and data, ESRI are a long term supporter of BSES and they are supporting this expedition also with their ARC GIS software and mapping data.

After finding our flowmeter to be a financial write off, Geopacks generously came to the rescue by sponsoring a brand new one for our melt water fieldwork.

The RSPB have kindly loaned the expediiton several pairs of binoculars from their second hand scheme. These will be put to great use in our Geese survey fieldwork. Please support this project if you are able.

Amersham Field Centre is part of the Field Studies Council (FSC), an environmental charity with 17 centres around the UK offering resdential and day visits for students. The FSC kindly loaned several waders to keep the team dry during the melt project.
