Eugene Domack

Eugene Domack, Ph.D. 

PROFESSOR OF GEOLOGY, HAMILTON COLLEGE 

Hamilton Geology Professor Eugene Domack has 25 years of Antarctic experience, the last 15 in the Peninsula region. He is interested in understanding the natural record of environmental variability locked in glacial marine sediments in fjords and inner coastal basins on both sides of the Peninsula. He is currently investigating the paleorecord of Antarctica's disintegrating ice shelves. Domack's research is made possible by funding from the National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs. Contact Professor Domack at edomack@hamilton.edu.

Laurie Padman, Ph.D.

EARTH AND SPACE RESEARCH

Laurence ("Laurie") Padman is a senior research scientist at Earth & Space Research (ESR), and has 18 years experience in the physical oceanography of polar seas. His research encompasses measuring and modeling turbulent mixing in the ocean, modeling tides around Antarctica, and assessing the effect of tides on a variety of processes including ocean mixing, basal melt of ice shelves, ice-shelf rifting, and sea ice dynamics and thermodynamics. His role in this program is to provide interpretation of physical oceanographic data collected during cruises, and to model tides and other ocean processes to assist in understanding the physical processes affecting the sedimentation records. Padman's research is funded by the National Science Foundation, Office of Polar Programs. Previous support from NASA assisted with the development of tide models for application to ice shelf studies. Contact Professor Padman at padman@esr.org.
