Antarctica: Ice, Mountains, and Meteorites

Wednesday, April 28, 2004
Gordon "Oz"
Osinski - Planet Science Institute & Lunar & Planetary Lab.

The Antarctic Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) program has been heading down to the frozen continent of Antarctica for over 25 years. Gordon "Oz" Osinski, a participant of the 2003-2004 field season, will give an informal talk on his experiences with ANSMET and his time on the ice. Come along to find out the answers to all those questions you've always wanted to ask! Why are so many m eteorites found in Antarctica? What's it like living in a tent for 6 weeks on the ice? What do we eat? How often do we wash? How cold did it get? What's so important about meteorites anyway?!
