Research at WHOI isn't focused exclusively on the ocean. In 2007, MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Andrea Burke got the chance to travel to Antarctica. She joined an expedition led by WHOI geochemist Mark Kurz and vulcanologist Adam Soule to learn about the pace at which rocks deteriorate in Antarctica’s cold, dry climate and thus gain an understanding of how quickly the rugged landscape forms and changes.
