Helen Fields has written for Smithsonian, National Geographic, Science, and other publications. In 2009, she spent a month and a half aboard a U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker off Alaska, following scientists around while they did research on the ecosystem of the Bering Sea as part of a massive multi-year collaborative project. Her essay about the experience, along with Chris Linder’s photography, was recently published in Linder’s new book, Science on Ice: Four Polar Expeditions (University of Chicago Press, 2011).
