Andrea Burke

High Up Down Under

Bundled against frigid Antarctic gales, MIT/WHOI Joint Program graduate student Andrea Burke strides over lava-strewn terrain around Mount Morning, an extinct volcano about 800 miles from the South Pole. In 2007, as a second-year student, Burke signed on for a five-week expedition with two other WHOI scientists to an uninhabited volcanic landscape that is gnawed by wind, but otherwise undisturbed by plants, soil, or running water since the volcano's last eruption 25,000 years ago.
