Biography

Andrew Dombard (Photo: Jenny Fontaine)

Work as a planetary scientist has taken Andrew Dombard on expeditions to Yellowstone National Park, on research cruises to the South Pacific, and to encampments in Antarctica.

Dombard studies how the surfaces of planets are formed. Since he can’t directly explore Martian craters or the moons of Saturn, he models how craters are sculpted on Earth by heat and cold and the mechanical properties of ice, even under flowing glaciers.
