The presentation will be given by Dr. Joan Fitzpatrick is a research scientist with the Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center at the US Geological Survey in Denver. She has been an active researcher in the field of glaciology and ice core analysis since 1989 and has participated in every US-sponsored deep ice-drilling project since that time.
