Geophysical Tales

Carl Benson has a long track record with the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Geophysical Institute. He first visited it in 1950, and joining its faculty a decade later. Matthew Sturm came up as a grad student to study with Carl in the 1980s, and is now part of the G.I. During the pandemic, I recorded four wide-ranging, online conversations between these two friends and colleagues. In this final discussion, Benson reflects on his time at the institute and what may be challenges going forward.

Also on the show, Matthew has written about snow in several books, but last week saw the opening of a museum exhibit dedicated to his favorite subject.
