Over the weekend, Gordon Hamilton—a glaciologist at the University of Maine—died while doing field work in Antarctica. NOVA l PBS is deeply saddened by the loss.
Here's his obituary in The New York Times: http://to.pbs.org/2eLtcrn
One of NOVA's digital producers, Ari Daniel, had the opportunity to report on Hamilton's work in Greenland two summers ago. He says, "Gordon was certainly a first-rate scientist. But he was also such a kind, warm, and generous man. I'm honored to have gotten to know him, and see him in his element."
Meet Helheim, a glacier of exquisite beauty that Hamilton knew well. (From NOVA l PBS)
