Arctic Research: Barrow, Alaska — Here We Come!

The countdown and preparation begins!  We are getting ready to go to Barrow, Alaska to repeat tests done in Antarctica on the opposite pole of the world.  Dr.Ken Golden (math), Dr. Cindy Furse (electrical engineering), PhD student Christian Sampson (math), and undergrad-turned-masters student David Lubbers (electrical engineering) are heading out May 13-23, 2011.

We will be measuring how fluid moves through the ice and its electrical properties and trying to correlate the two.  Our previous results from Antarctica look very interesting and promising, and we are hoping to see similar good stuff in the Arctic.

We have some other great news this week — Dr. Ken was just honored as a new ‘Fellow’ of the SIAM mathematics community.  This is a tremendous honor, and we are proud of him!

He will be giving a talk on the Frozen Ocean and Climate Change next Wednesday, April 14, 2011 at the Gould Auditorium of the Marriott Library.
