Antarctic Larsen Ice Shelf Course Starts July 11
Five Hamilton students will be joined by 12 additional students from seven colleges and five countries (Belgium, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and United States) for a two-week course on the marine geology of Antarctica's Larsen Ice Shelf. This National Science Foundation-sponsored program, related to the International Polar Year (IPY) and the LARISSA project (Larsen Ice Shelf System, Antarctica), will take an interdisciplinary approach in examining the reason for the ice shelf's dramatic breakup in 2002.

Interdisciplinary Antarctic Expedition Sets Sail
On January 4, more than 30 scientists from 11 states and four countries, led by  Hamilton's Eugene Domack, the J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences, embarked upon one of the most complex interdisciplinary Antarctic expeditions ever funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). During the two-month trip the scientists will be addressing a significant regional problem with global change implications, the abrupt environmental change in Antarctica's Larsen Ice Shelf System. The expedition is part of the NSF's International Polar Year (IPY) program. More ...
