Kristine Crossen 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. She has specialized in glacial marine sedimentation of the Ice Age, glacial and Pleistocene geology, geomorphology, the geology of Alaska, and Alaskan glaciers.
