I am a professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, primarily studying the impacts of climate change in arctic Alaska. My main focus is glaciers, but also the influence that changing glaciers have on downstream ecosystems. My panoramic photography is largely in support of these efforts. I am trying to capture the current state of various landscape features in the arctic through spherical and gigapixels panoramas, so that we can assess how these features are changing in time. These images are also a nice way to share the beauty of these remote places with those who may never have the opportunity to visit them in person.
