IGY On the Ice
Produced by: Barbara Bogaev
During the International Geophysical year, in the late 50's, teams of scientists poured in Antarctica, mining for data: about the weather, the climate and most especially, about the Ice. For some, it was the adventure of a lifetime. For others, the beginning of a long and illustrious career exploring the polar terrain. Producer Barbara Bogaev talks to some of the men who were there. Among them are: John Behrendt, who signed on as a young grad assistant, and went onto author numerous books about the ice; Tony Gow, who thought he was going to study volcanoes, and went onto to become one of the world's leading authorities on the properties of ice; Phil Smith, one of the few who knew how to safely forge a path around crevasses, and became one of the leading architects of international Antarctic policy; and Charlie Bentley, part of the team that made the first measurements of West Antarctic ice sheets, and became a world renown glaciologist.
