Cold War in a Cold Place

Carl Benson testing the wind.

Last Summer, during COVID lock-down, I recorded a series of conversations between University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute scientists Matthew Sturm and Carl Benson. Both men have made important contributions to our understanding of snow in high latitudes. Matthew was Carl’s grad student and over the years he heard about a long line of important researchers Carl met or worked with. In an effort to get some of these stories down, I recorded their chats, at first by phone and later on Zoom. This is the second recording in the series. 

Also, writer and reviewer Frank Soos is in with a look at two recent collection of essays.
