Ben Blazey

REU intern, 2005

When not being chased by polar bears or exploring Alaska's backcountry, Ben spent his time with the Sea Ice Group examining seasonal variability of landfast ice along the northern coast of Alaska. Using IDL and ENVI software to analyze RadarSAT data, Ben focused on the timing and location of break-out events for the ice seasons 1996-97 through 2003-04.
