During her time as a professor of geology at CSU, Fresno, Dr. Fraka Harmsen was asked to be the sedimentologist on an Antarctic expedition by Dr. Margaret Brach. She was asked to return in 1991 and 1992 with Australian expert, Dr. John Long to conduct research on fish fossil recovery. In this presentation, Dr. Harmsen reads excerpts from Dr. Long’s book, Mountains of Madness: A Journey Through Antarctica. The book is a chronicle of their expedition together as deep field explorers into unknown territory.
