In February, Ivan Vince of ASK Consultants joined a team supporting climate change research in the Arctic. He collected snow samples that will help scientists to assess the effects of rising temperatures on the Hudson Bay region in Canada.

Below are just a few of the images taken by the project team. They endured temperatures below -47 degrees Celsius whilst gathering their data. But it wasn't all work and no play - take a look at three of the team "enjoying" a ride in a qamutik (aka Dread Sled) in the last picture.

For more information about the project, which is led by Peter Kershaw from the University of Alberta in Canada, visit the Climate Change at the Arctic's Edge website.

Ivan Vince's daughter, Gaia, recently quit her job to learn more about the effects of global warming.  She is currently travelling around the world, visiting the people, plants and animals that will be most affected by the impacts of climate change.  You can read Gaia's blog here.
