Chisels, GPS and a Sledgehammer - Packing for an Antarctic Island Trip

What does one pack for a trip to an Antarctic island?  Items not found on a typical packing checklist, as some Hamilton students learned this week when they prepared for an expedition to Robertson Island.  It’s week two of the Antarctica 2012 research expedition, aboard the ship Nathaniel B. Palmer for Natalie Elking ’12, Manique Talaia-Murray ’12, Andrew Seraichick ’13, Elizabeth Bucceri ’11 and Associate Professor of Biology Mike McCormick.   More ...

Glaciologist Richard Alley Gives Global Warning

The world is definitely warming, and it is directly due to factors that human beings have caused—these are two things that Dr. Richard Alley is certain of, and the premises on which he based his Oct. 20 lecture in the Taylor Science Center. Alley, a glaciologist and member of the UN climate change committee that was awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize,  spoke on present state and future implications of sea-level rise due to a warming planet.  More ...

Antarctic Warming Leads to Crab Migration

A paper co-authored by Geosciences Professor Eugene Domack that demonstrates how rising temperatures in the Antarctic margin have allowed an invasive species to decimate the existing marine life was published on Sept. 7 in the British journal  Proceedings B, the Royal Society's flagship biological research journal.  More ...

Natalie Elking '12 and Manique Talaia-Murray '12 sample a sediment core from Antarctica for their summer research projects.
Elking ’12 and Talaia-Murray ’12 Examine Antarctica Sediment Core

Geoscience students Natalie Elking ’12 and Manique Talaia-Murray ’12 conducted summer research related to sediment cores from Antarctica.  Elking is working on the organic geochemistry (carbon and nitrogen isotopes) of sub ice shelf sediments and Talaia-Murray is conducting a radiocarbon dating project using microfossils.   More ...
