McCormick Moderates AAAS Climate Change Panel

Associate Professor of Biology Mike McCormick moderated a panel discussion on “Changing Earth and Eco Systems in the Antarctic Peninsula” at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) national meeting held February 14-16, in Chicago.  More ...

Hare '14 and Weisman '15 on Antarctica Expedition

On Oct. 27, Alexander Hare ’14 and Isabelle “Izzy” Weisman ’15 sailed to Antarctica to continue ongoing research initiated by Eugene Domack, the J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences and director of Larsen Ice Shelf System – Antarctica (LARISSA), a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded and Hamilton College supported initiative. Domack’s former student, Amelia Shevenell ’96, is serving as chief scientist on this cruise.  More ...

Six Students Study GPS Data Evaluation

Six Hamilton Geoscience students participated in a National Science Foundation- and University of Tasmania-supported short course from  June 27 to June 29 in Hobart, Tasmania. The course was focused on teaching the introductory steps in processing continuous global positioning system (GPS) data strings from the U.S. Antarctic LARISSA cGPS network. This network was installed in the last four years as part of the LARsen Ice Shelf System Antarctica project and was, in part, installed with the assistance of Hamilton students.  More ...

Domack Research Highlighted in the Journal Nature

Research conducted on a 57-day expedition along the Antarctic Peninsula in 2010 led by Eugene Domack, the J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences, was the focus of a Dec. 12 article in the journal Nature. “Polar research: Trouble bares its claws” provided an overview of the changing ecological balance in the waters off Antarctica due to warming waters, highlighting Domack’s measurement of temperature changes during the last three decades.  More ...

Hamilton Students Studying on Seven Continents

Hamilton students are now pursuing their studies on all seven continents. On Oct. 10, Chief Scientist Eugene Domack, the J. W. Johnson Family Professorship of Environmental Studies, began an 18-day cruise to Antarctica along with two Hamilton students and two alumni. Students are writing blog updates about their trip each day.  More ...

NPR Interviews Domack on Humans' Role in Antarctic Ice Melt

National Public Radio science reporter Richard Harris interviewed Eugene Domack, the Joel W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences, for a segment on All Things Considered on Aug. 22 titled “Humans’ Role In Antarctic Ice Melt Is Unclear.”  Domack’s research, published in the journal Nature in 2005, provided evidence that the break-up of Antarctica’s Larsen B ice shelf was caused by a combination of long-term thinning over thousands of years and short term cumulative increases in surface air temperature that have exceeded the natural variation of regional climate during the Holocene period.  More ...

Domack Discusses LARISSA Study at International Conference

Joel W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences Eugene Domack presented “LARISSA: LARsen Ice Shelf System, Antarctica; an Interdisciplinary/International Observing and Monitoring Study of a Critical Antarctic Region” on July 19 at the SCAR (Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research) and Open Science Conference in Portland, Ore.  More ...

Eugene Domack
Scientific American Features Domack Research

"Witness to an Antarctic Meltdown - Scientists Trek to Collapsing Glaciers to Assess Antarctica’s Meltdown and Sea-Level Rise," an article that appeared in the Scientific American’s July issue, focused on research performed during the 2010 LARISSA (LARsen Ice Shelf System, Antarctica) expedition for which Hamilton Geosciences Professor Eugene Domack served as Principal Investigator. Writer Douglas Fox, who accompanied the 30 scientists on the two-month expedition, described the researchers’ efforts to determine how fast the continent is melting and what that might mean for sea-level rise.  More ...

Domack Awarded NSF Grant for Continuation of LARISSA Work

Eugene Domack, the Joel W. Johnson Family Professor of Geosciences, has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant of $182,453 for the project “Continuation of the LARISSA Continuous GPS Network in View of Observed Dynamic Response to Antarctic Peninsula Ice Mass Balance and Required Geologic Constraints.”  The award is effective July 1, 2012 and expires June 30, 2017.  More ...
