Kristine Crossen is a professor of geology and the chair of the Geology Department at the University of Alaska Anchorage. She grew up in Wisconsin, surrounded by lakes, rivers and valleys. Her love of the outdoors inspired her to study geology in college. When she moved to Alaska in 1969, Dr. Crossen became curious about the glaciers in her new environment and began researching modern glaciers and their recent history. Since 1985, Dr. Crossen has enjoyed teaching students about the earth's landscapes and helping to prepare them for exciting careers in geology. Recently, she has taught courses that involved field excursions into the Kenai Peninsula and into Portage Glacier. Dr. Crossen's recent research involves comparison of fifteen terrestrial and tidewater glaciers during the past 200 years. She has specialized in glacial marine sedimentation of the Ice Age, glacial and Pleistocene geology, geomorphology, the geology of Alaska, and Alaskan glaciers.
