Dr. Karen Frey is Associate Professor of Geography in the Graduate School School of Geography at Clark University. Her research interests involve the combined use of field measurements, satellite remote sensing, and GIS to study large-scale linkages between land, atmosphere, ocean, and ice in polar environments. Her research includes studies of hydrological and biogeochemical impacts of terrestrial permafrost degradation across Siberia and the biological and biogeochemical impacts of sea ice decline in polar shelf environments. Over the past decade, she has conducted field-based research in West and East Siberia, as well as in the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas. She is currently advising graduate students and conducting research projects in Siberia, Alaska, West Antarctica, the Himalayas, and the Chukchi/Beaufort Seas.
