Northern Mongolia Adventure and Discovery in Science
2019 NOMAD Science Application
A remote project area, variable climate, challenging topography, and cultural differences dictate that participants are in reasonably good physical shape, have a positive attitude, are culturally sensitive, and have a good sense of adventure. We will be departing from Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia on the listed start date, and returning to the city on the listed end date. It is suggested that you give yourself at least a couple of days before and after these dates to be in the city, as delayed flights and lost baggage happen with some frequency. It will take us approximately 3-4 days to reach the project area by car as it’s approximately 1,000 km from the city, and there are few paved or dirt roads in Mongolia. Participants will not be able to sign up for only part of a 3 week session as it is logistically very difficult to arrange alternative travel options.
