Physics professor Rhett Herman and a group of Radford University students were in Barrow, Alaska in early March to measure the thickness and structure of the sea ice in Alaska's northernmost city. The researchers' goal was to establish a correlation between the ice thickness and the temperature at the surface of the ice with the warm ocean below the ice. In the photo, the group is holding signs that read "Happy Birthday, RU!" in honor of the university's Centennial Celebration.
