NSF Renews Dartmouth’s Role Leading U.S. Ice Drilling Program


Feb. 24, 2015

Dartmouth Thayer School of Engineering Professor Mary Albert has been awarded $17.4 million by the National Science Foundation to continue to lead the U.S. Ice Drilling Program through 2018.

Albert and her colleagues look into the interiors of the polar ice sheets, where they can find well-preserved and detailed climate records. 

“With the currently changing climate, it has never been more important to understand how the Earth system works in the context of past climate. From this knowledge we can learn about what to anticipate in the future,” says Albert.
