Roy Chapman Andrews Society

The Roy Chapman Andrews Society in Beloit is presenting its annual 'Distinguished Explorer' award to Dr. Richard Alley. He’s a Penn State climatologist whose drilling into Antarctic ice led to greater knowledge of global climate change.

Dr. Alley started out studying geology at Ohio State University, but branched into studying glaciers and snowfall while working with a professor over one summer.  The data he gathered, however, was from an "unconventional" source.
