Calling all present and former South Pole workers?

Amudsen Scott (Courtesy NSF)Amudsen Scott (Courtesy NSF)Ladies and gentleman:

I am working on an article about life at the South Pole and could use your help. What prompted you to take a job where you would spend months away from your family and friends? How serious of a problem is alcohol abuse? I am also interested in hearing stories about the late Australian scientist Rodney Marks whose 2000 poisoning death remains unsolved. His death is being investigated in New Zealand.

You can contact me at I’ll honor requests for confidentiality, but be advised that any material that’s provided me will be published in some form at a later date.
