>Actually Joe most of my research has been in the Antarctic. As exciting as
that was, I felt that some of the real opportunities to do something new are
in the Arctic. For example, we are finding that a climate warming in the
Arctic is starting to affect the environment. That could be a very exciting
research program if we can learn enough about the environment to be able to
predict the changes likely to occur.  Most of my research in the Antarctic
was about how things worked in the past. To predict the future is a rare
opportunity.
