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 ...
