Dr. Robert Bindschadler is a Chief Scientist of the NASA's Hydrospheric and Biospheric Sciences Laboratory. His interest is the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets, and investigating how remote sensing can be used to improve our understanding of the role of ice in the Earth's climate. As the leader of fourteen Antarctic field expeditions he has extensive first-hand knowledge of the hazards and challenges of working in the Antarctic environment. Other research has taken him to Greenland and various glaciers throughout the world.
