Owner Lana Cohen, PhD. (geophysics) has spent 20 years collecting geophysical and environmental data in remote and rugged environments in the Arctic, Antarctic, and places in between. She has deployed and maintained instruments in remote locations via snowmobile, helicopter, airplane, ship, and by foot and ski. Through this work, she has gained considerable knowledge of what it takes to get high-quality data in remote settings.
She has successfully used the data she has collected to advance interdisciplinary research in the polar regions.
