Talk: The Making of an Antarctic Science Expedition with Jeffrey Donenfeld

Thanks to everybody who made it to my talk “The Making of an Antarctic Science Expedition” this week at Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder, Colorado! We had a great time discussing Antarctic expeditions, science, and life!

Join Antarctic Field Technician Jeffrey Donenfeld for a look inside life in the middle of the highest, coldest, windiest, and driest deserts in the world: Antarctica. Jeffrey, who currently works for Four North, a field and expedition consulting agency in Boulder, will share his process of beginning a career working in Antarctica, joining the United States Antarctic Program, and living and working at both the South Pole Station and West Antarctic Ice Sheet Field Camp.

He’ll discuss in depth the logistics, equipment, preparation, and planning that goes into working and living at some of the coldest and remote places on the planet. See candid photos and videos from across breathtaking Antarctica.

There will be a Q&A Session following the presentation. Plus enjoy delicious Japanese food from Miho Catering, drinks, and a giveaway of a genuine United States Antarctic Program patch, as worn by Antarctic Scientists on the iconic “Big Red” parkas.
