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.

Hamilton alumna and current Tulane University graduate student Kimberly Roe ’08, who accompanied Domack on another Antarctic expedition in 2006, is reporting about the current expedition on the cruise site.

This year’s expedition is part of a larger multi-year program called LARISSA.
