On Everest, Conrad Anker serviced the cameras used for the Extreme Ice Survey, which document changes in Himalayan glaciers over time. Check out these photo slide shows of glacier movements in the Himalayas.

Mountaineer/author Conrad Anker invites students in Montana and throughout the world to follow the Everest Education Expedition in Spring 2012.


Meet Dave Lageson, a geology professor at Montana State University and member of the 2012 Everest Education Expedition. Dave conducted an extensive geological survey of Everest and encouraged students in Montana and beyond to follow along.


Travis Corthouts and Dave Lageson of Montana State University were part of the 2012 Everest Education Expedition, where they conducted geological research on Mount Everest and shared their findings with schools and citizens in Montana and beyond.


Watch the clouds spill over Nuptse in this video sent to us by Travis. Travis Corthouts, a Montana State University geology student, was on Everest this spring with his profesor, Dr. David Lageson, and an expedition team led by Conrad Anker.


Do you know what a "perched glacier" is? Find out with Dr. Dave Lageson, direct from Everest Base Camp. Dr. David Lageson, a geology professor at Montana State University, stands at Everest Base Camp and explains the concept of perched glaciers.


Just when you thought it couldn't get any more intense, Travis sends this video....a climber's-eye view of what it's like to cross a crevasse on an aluminum ladder. In this hair-raising view, Travis Corthouts, a Montana State University geology student, crosses a crevasse in the Khumbu Icefall above Everest Base Camp.


Cool geology video features Dr. Dave Lageson sitting on a field of leucogranite near Everest Base Camp. Dave shares how this rock was formed 24 million years ago underneath Tibet.


More yak info straight from Travis at Base Camp: The average yak load is about 150-200lbs. They train them by making them carry loads at a young age. Yaks walk about 1.5-2 miles per hour. A yak weighs about the same as a Montana cow, 1,000 - 1,200lbs. They travel up to 12 miles in a day. Yaks often have names but for progressively larger herds the names become more generic, like black, brown or white yak.


Today's cool Base Camp Video was shot by Travis with a TimeLapseCam from WINGSCAPES, just like our teachers are using back in the Rocky Mountains. Thanks, Travis!


Dr. David Lageson, a geology professor at Montana State University, gives us a tour of the Khumbu Glacier and explains a "positive feedback impact."


Travis Corthouts, a student at Montana State University, gives us a tour of his tent at Everest Base Camp, where you can get a glimpse of everything from his geology tools to his solar power set-up.


Dr. David Lageson, a geology professor at Montana State University, shows us a "folded rock" he found just outside of Everest Base Camp.
