My decision to join the CHRN is a matter of "unfinished business." I was a glaciologist with NASA for my entire career, based at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland and conducting research on the dynamics of ice sheets, both using a variety of satellite data and leading many field expeditions to the most remote regions of Antarctica. It was a very satisfying and gratifying career and I feel privileged and blessed to have experienced it all. However, I conducted the research I did because I wanted to make the world a better place, and that would only happen if the discoveries and understandings my colleagues and I achieved were used to make wiser decisions affecting society. Too little of the earth science we have learned has found its way into policy and regulations. That's the unfinished business that prevents me from riding peacefully into my sunset years.
