Arjun Heimsath, a Dartmouth University geologist

Arjun Heimsath, a Dartmouth College geologist and recipient of a 2003 PECASE honor, collects bedrock samples above the Matanuska Glacier in the Chugach Range of Alaska. Heimsath initially analyzes erosion rates and age of exposure of the samples. Then, he and his students do lab analyses on the samples to determine their intrinsic strength and states of weathering. From this, Heimsath is able to determine the mechanical and climate controls on erosion rates that occur in landscapes at higher elevations.

Sensors inside the gloves interact with software and generate data scientists are using in human factor and behavioral studies, among others. Students get hands-on experience in using sophisticated mathematics and acquiring advanced knowledge in mining multidimensional data streams.
