Wendy Ermold is a scientific programmer and field technician for the Polar Science Center. She primarily works jointly with Mike Steele in the study of Arctic Circulation, and the mechanisms controlling it. She joined the Polar Science team in 1998.
About Wendy Ermold
This project supports the design, development, and implementation of a component of an Arctic Ocean Observing System in the Switchyard region of the Arctic Ocean (north of Greenland and Nares Strait) that serves the scientific studies developed for the IPY (International Polar Year), SEARCH (Study of Environmental ARctic Change), and related programs.read more »
