CH2M HILL Polar Services (CPS) is quite pleased to announce that the National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded a contract to CH2M HILL Constructors, Inc., of Englewood, Colorado on 28 September 2011 to provide research support and logistics services for NSF-sponsored research in the Arctic.
During the last week in February, thirteen educators from across the United States convened in Fairbanks, Alaska, to participate in the 2011 PolarTREC Orientation and ShareFair.
Turns out, the atmosphere is a lot more dynamic and complicated than a parfait (or even an onion). Professor Jeffrey Thayer’s ARCLITE (Arctic LiDAR Technology) NSF-funded project uses remote sensing techniques to figure out just how complicated the atmosphere really is.
Roy Stehle (our communications engineer at SRI) sent a couple more notes from the ship Akademik Ioffe where he and wife Margie enjoyed a 15-day cruise around Norway’s Svalbard Archipelago.
Roy Stehle (of SRI, one of the CH2M HILL Polar Services partners) loves to travel, and in his nearly 50-year marriage to Margie Stehle, the pair has explored the globe in abundance.
