KOERNER o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-06-14 published
Canada's dean of glaciology warned of coming climate change
Geological Survey of Canada expert studied ancient ice cores and set the stage for the current focus on global warming. In 1969, he was part of a team that reached the North Pole on foot
By Ron CSILLAG, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S12
Toronto -- Glaciers spoke to Roy KOERNER the way trees and rocks speak to a shaman. Considered the dean of glaciology in Canada and widely known as Fritz, Doctor KOERNER likened the giant chunks of ice to a museum. He considered them "the proverbial canary in the coal mine, an early warning to the rest of the world of the consequences that climate change is bringing," wrote Ed Struzik, last year's Atkinson Fellow, in a harrowing newspaper series on global warming.
For hidden in the layers of ice "is a record of every atmospheric event of the past - summer melts, acid snow, cooling trends, volcanic activity, industrial pollutants, even bomb testings.
"The deeper down you go, the farther you go back in time," Mr. Struzik said, describing Doctor KOERNER's regard for the treasure trove of data in glaciers. "The more sophisticated the technology you use to interpret the cores, the more detailed the information you retrieve."
Dr. KOERNER's study of layers in ice cores to reconstruct climate history of the last 11 millennia set the stage for the current focus on climate change. And as an old-school explorer of both polar ice caps, he was among just a handful of adventurers to be awarded the Polar Medal with both Arctic and Antarctic clasps.
He was perhaps best known for one of the most audacious expeditions of all time, showing the world that the intrepid explorers of yore still existed, by crossing the icebound Arctic Ocean on dog sled from Point Barrow, Alaska, to Vesle Tavleoya, a small rocky island off the north coast of Svalbard in Norway.
He and three fellow British explorers - including the renowned Sir Wally Herbert, who died a year ago - left with four dog teams on February 21, 1968, arrived at the North Pole on April 5 the next year (where they celebrated with tinned beef stew), and finished on May 30, 1969. In all, they trekked 5,800 kilometres, aided by periodic supply drops from Canadian Forces aircraft.
They endured marauding polar bears, man-eating crevasses, five months of total darkness, and temperatures plunging to -50, a feat that has never been repeated. The achievement was hailed by British prime minister Harold Wilson as a "feat of endurance and courage which ranks with any in polar history." Prince Phillip, the group's patron, called it "among the greatest triumphs of human skill and endurance."
Not only did Doctor KOERNER and his team become the first people ever to make the Arctic traversal, they may have been the first humans to reach the North Pole by foot (where they also conducted the first surface survey of the ice).
"Were they really the first to reach the [North] Pole?" wondered the Ottawa Citizen. "Probably. U.S. Navy explorer Robert Peary had made the same claim 60 years earlier, but later examinations of his diary and other evidence has led researchers to suspect he was never closer to the Pole than eight kilometres and probably much further."
A self-effacing, irreverent man with an indomitable spirit and seemingly indestructible runner's body, Doctor KOERNER sounded concerns about shrinking glaciers and a warming Arctic long before the current preoccupation with climate change.
By studying oxygen isotopes and the thickness of summer melt layers, he and his fellow scientists demonstrated three decades ago that while the warmest summers occurred 10,000 years ago and the coldest only 150 years ago, the summers over the past century have been the warmest in the past 1,000 years.
However, "he wasn't an alarmist," noted Geoff Green, founder of Students on Ice, an award-winning organization based in Gatineau, Quebec, that takes teenagers on learning expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic.
"He said, 'here's my data from 40 years and here's the trend,' recalled Mr. Green, who accompanied Doctor KOERNER on 10 expeditions to both poles." He let others use that as a baseline for a lot of the understanding of how our climate is changing. He didn't have an agenda. He was a scientist - a giant in his field. He was one of the greatest polar explorers of our time."
Possessed of an arid English wit, Doctor KOERNER described himself as a "relic" of the British Empire. The youngest of three sons born to a housewife and a dock worker in the busy British naval port of Portsmouth, he studied geography at the University of Sheffield, where he graduated in 1954. He taught briefly, but a wanderlust he developed as a young fan of exotic travel prompted him to set sail in 1957 for Hope Bay, Antarctica, as a meteorologist with the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey, now the British Antarctic Survey.
"It was a dog-sledding base," he would recall, "and we travelled up and down the peninsula and, of course, you are surrounded by glaciers, so naturally I got very interested."
He spent the next 2½ years as senior meteorologist and glaciologist near the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. For his work there, he received the Polar Medal from the Queen.
In 1961, already known as a top glaciologist, he joined an expedition to Devon Island in the Northwest Territories, where he spent two years studying the ice cap. His work earned him a doctorate from the London School of Economics, and laid the foundation for his later research elsewhere in the Canadian Arctic.
As part of an annual Arctic ritual, Doctor KOERNER returned to Devon Island about a year ago, looked out over Jones Sound, which separates Devon from Ellesmere Island, and noticed that it was ice-free. "I began my career in glaciology on Devon," he rued to Mr. Struzik. "I never thought I'd ever see that part of the Arctic Ocean open so early in the year."
In 1963, he joined the geography department of Ohio State University's Institute of Polar Studies as a research associate, where he concentrated on glaciers, but also on analysis of snow stratigraphy, or layering. For that work, he later received the United States Antarctic Service Medal.
Following his epic trans-Arctic crossing, for which he received the second clasp to his Polar Medal, Doctor KOERNER joined the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources in Ottawa as a research scientist and head of the Ice Core Laboratory. According to his son Justin, he chose to settle in Canada partly because the government had acquired the equipment needed for deep drilling of ice cores.
With it, he could bore down 300 metres to the 100,000-year-old bedrock under the Agassiz ice cap on Ellesmere Island. Those results, which showed that summers were indeed getting warmer, were in general agreement with results from similar work in Greenland, where glaciers were melting twice as fast as previously believed.
Dr. KOERNER was also part of the department's Polar Continental Shelf Project, which studied the mass balance of Arctic glaciers and past climate through ice-core analysis, but also helped define exactly where the polar continental shelf was in an effort to establish Canada's sovereignty claims in the High Arctic.
He studied the ice caps on four islands: Devon, Meighen, Ellesmere and Melville Island, thus spanning all the climate regions of the Canadian Arctic. As his long-time friend and colleague David Fisher wrote in the London Times a few days ago, "his approach to polar science was direct, critical and focused on the essentials."
During his time in Ottawa, Doctor KOERNER taught geography at Carleton University. Over the course of his career, he published more than 70 scientific papers and book chapters, mainly in the field of glaciology. He was also active in the early stirrings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which, along with Al Gore, was awarded last year's Nobel Peace Prize.
He took his work seriously but not himself. On field trips with Students on Ice, "he was the king of irreverence," Mr. Green recalled. "The kids absolutely adored him. He had a way of educating and inspiring and entertaining that was quite unique. He was the only guy I knew who could make a graph hilarious."
In 1979, Doctor KOERNER was named head of the Geological Survey of Canada's glaciology group, where he continued to work until his formal retirement in 1999. Until this year, he was the Canadian representative to the International Arctic Science Committee.
His final research interest was on reductions in acid snow due to our declining use of sulphates, a result that he identified as part of the global warming equation, according to Natural Resources Canada.
But no matter how reserved he was, he could not hide his concern over climate trends. "When you add up all of these unusual things we've been seeing in the Arctic over the past few years," he said last year, "you really realize just how warm things are getting up there."
Down below, too. In his early days in Antarctica, he was honoured for his work with the naming of his own topographical feature - Koerner Rock, a 600-metre-high stone mountain near Hope Bay. Over the years, the glacial ice has since melted to the extent that there are now three Koerner Rocks.
Mr. Green wants to see a glacier named after Doctor KOERNER in the Canadian Arctic, and plans to keep alive a project of Doctor KOERNER's that Ottawa approved just recently, in which two Inuit youth from Grise Fiord, Nunavut, Canada's most northern settlement, will be taken on a trip to Antarctica this December to do some ice coring.
Roy Martindale (Fritz) KOERNER was born in Portsmouth, England, on July 6, 1932, and died in Ottawa on May 26, 2008, after cutting short his last Arctic trip due to colon cancer. He was 75. His wife, Anna (née KOWALCZYKE) died in 1989. He leaves his children Eva, Davina, Kristina and Justin.
