10 Years of CWU Research in Antarctica
2017-18 is the tenth year Dr. Audrey Huerta and Dr. Paul Winberry have been instructing and conducting polar research in the CWU Geological Sciences department. Their research continues to use geophysical methods to explore the tectonic structure and history of ice-covered regions as well as the influence of geology on glacial dynamics. During their time at CWU they have conducted over ten research expeditions to Antarctica as well as experiments in Alaska and Norway. This work has been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and has provided opportunities for 2 undergraduate and 5 graduate students to travel to Antarctica to conduct research.
