Here’s a poster I presented last year at the ICIMOD-International Glaciological Society symposium in Kathmandu. The time series plots were done in R ggplot, the study area map in QGIS, and everything was put together in Inkscape.
The goal was to clearly and simply present some initial results from our high-altitude on-glacier meteorological station. Standing beside the poster, it was easy to point readers to the interesting highlights (surface albedo, monsoon onset and withdrawal). As chair of the local organizing committee, it was great to just stand beside the poster and talk science for a few hours – but I think the poster design provides opportunities for discussions.
