Looming over Alaska's most economically important highway
Dr. Margaret Darrow is the Principal Investigator of several FDL research projects. She focuses on the frozen debris lobe morphology, movement rates, geotechnical characteristics, and slope stability considerations.
Dr. Ronald Daanen rediscovered frozen debris lobes in 2007 after their first recognition by Hamilton in 1978. He is a Dutch cold climate hydrologist, working on hydrology, permafrost and vadose zone physical, chemical, and biological processes. He employs his expertise to understand the surface and groundwater flow on the FDLs, as well as their overall movement characteristics.
