“Tropical Mountain Permafrost"

Location: STB-108

Dr. Kenji Yoshikawa, a professor from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Water and Environmental Research Center will present his research on permafrost geomorphology and permafrost. Dr. Yoshikawa’s primary interest include searching for and exploring pingos and icings around the world. These two difficult quests by Yoshikawa—one into interior Antarctica and the other across the Sahara for an ancient pingo scar—are described in his biography by Ned Rozell in the book Finding Mars. Yoshikawa’s research locations have included Svalbard, Greenland, Alaska, Siberia, Tibet, Canadian Arctic, and Mongolia, where he has located many pingos and examined their internal structures and hydrology. He has organized and taken part in many field investigations, including searching permafrost at Mount Kilimanjaro, Mexico, Hawaii and the Peruvian Andes.
