Rocks, Rats, and Macaroni: An Antarctic Geology Expedition

Sustainability Series

Mindy Kimball

  • Lieutenant Colonel, US Army; Sustainability PhD Student

In this talk, Kimball will share her stories from an expedition where she sailed around the Antarctic Peninsula to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the Geologic Society of America. The 3-week expedition brought together leading researchers in geology, climatology, and bird and marine ecology. Learn why rocks can be more interesting than whales and penguins, how conservation efforts can eradicate rats, and how the macaroni penguin was named.

Kimball's research interests include sustainable transportation, life-cycle assessment, and the national security implications of climate change.
