Chemistry Research in Antarctica

Dr. David Kieber, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry professor of chemistry, made his fifth visit to Antarctica to conduct chemical oceanography research. Relive Dr. Kieber's progress on our Updates from the Ross Sea page.

Kieber led a team of ESF students, including masters degree candidate Jordan Brinkley and undergraduate John Bisgrove, to study biological and chemical transformations.

Dr. Kieber's graduate student, George Westby, conducted research at the U.S. Palmer Station in Antarctica as part of an international team.

Dr. David Kieber"Scientifically, the Polar Regions are virtually unexplored. There is a tremendous amount we don't know about Antarctica and the uniqueness of the chemistry and biology of the region," said Dr. David Kieber, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry professor of chemistry. Dr. Kieber finished his fifth journey to Antarctica to conduct chemical oceanography research for two months aboard the research vessel R/V Nathaniel B. Palmer (NBP).
