Black and Bloom is a research project, funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), that aims to unravel how dark particles (black) and microbial processes (bloom) darken and accelerate the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

On this website you can find out more about our mission and take a look at the science behind the project to see how we’ll be tackling these problems. We will communicate our key findings as they become available, and you can also follow our news and twitter feed @Glacier_Albedo to keep track of our progress
