St. Lawrence News


Associate Professor of Geology Jeffrey Chiarenzelli '81 gave a talk at Grinnell College's "Critical Issues for the Arctic" Rosenfield symposium on the dangers of formerly used defense sites (FUDS).

Chiarenzelli's lecture focused on the Gambell and Northeast Cape facilities, which were both built on Alaska's St. Lawrence Island during the Cold War. In addition to outlining the basics of FUDS, Chiarenzelli explained the challenges he has faced in proving environmental hazards posed by the facilities, describing his work with environmental forensics as a "whodunit with chemicals."

In 2006, Chiarenzelli's research on St. Lawrence Island involved University faculty colleagues and undergraduate students.
