Gordon Hamilton was a world-renowned glaciologist at the University of Maine. He studied the relationship between ice sheets and oceans. He died last month in Antarctica when his snowmobile plunged into a glacial crevice while he was mapping a trail. He was 50 years old.

We spoke to three researchers who worked with Hamilton and they told us what he and his work meant to them.
