The Antarctic Sun, a publication of the U.S. Antarctic Program, featured research performed by Eugene Domack, the J.W. Johnson Family Professor of Environmental Studies, and Associate Professor of Biology Michael McCormick as part of the LARISSA (LARsen Ice Shelf System Research, Antarctica) Project. Domack is the principal investigator on the LARISSA program and, while at Hamilton, has conducted marine geology expeditions to Antarctica for the last 25 years.
The cruises which Domack led previously in the 2000s focused on the Larsen B region of the continent were part of the catalyst for the LARISSA project. He will again return to Antarctica this year in October on a three-week expedition with several Hamilton students and alumni.
