Publisher's Summary

During the International Geophysical Year (IGY), in the late 1950's, teams of scientists poured in Antarctica, mining for data: about the weather, the climate and most especially, about the ice. Producer Barbara Bogaev talks to some of the men who were there. Among them are: John Behrendt, who signed on as a young grad assistant, and went onto author numerous books about the ice; Tony Gow, who thought he was going to study volcanoes, and went onto to become one of the world's leading authorities on the properties of ice; Phil Smith, one of the few who knew how to safely forge a path around crevasses, and became one of the leading architects of international Antarctic policy; and Charlie Bentley, part of the team that made the first measurements of West Antarctic ice sheets, and became a world renown glaciologist.
