Darren Hill presents an up close-up and personal look into the life of a NASA sponsored International Polar Research team.
As part of the NASA sponsored International (U.S., Canada, Denmark & Germany) Polar Research team Darren Hill traveled thousands of miles around the Greenland Ice Sheet, to set up and maintain the world's largest Firn Compaction Network in history to accurately record the melt and movement of the Greenland ice Sheet, focusing primarily on the last 30 years of ice. This presentation gives an over the shoulder view of the team's travel, research studies, and how they survived day to day in the planet's harshest environment.
Darren served as the team's vital technician, combining the duties of mechanic, data manager and photographer/videographer to round out the team's responsibilities. He lives in Bend, Oregon with his wife and children where he owns and operates the IT support company PC Friendly.
