Alan Cooper will be taking 6 months leave-of-absence without pay from USGS beginning mid-January 2000 to be co-chief scientist on Ocean Drilling Leg 188 in Prydz Bay, Antarctica. The other co-chief scientist is Dr. Phillip O'Brien from the Australian Geological Survey Organization. Alan will work with Dr. Robert Dunbar in the Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University as a consulting professor and will receive salary support through Stanford from the Joint Oceanographic Institutions/National Science Foundation.

The primary focus of Leg 188 studies will be the late Mesozoic and Cenozoic paleoenvironmental history of Antarctica and the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Alan will also work on a special project to establish the distribution and deformation effects of gas hydrates in the drill cores, using X-ray and visual observations. The science prospectus for the leg and drilling reports can be viewed at the ODP Web site.
