Keith Mountain, glaciologist

Dr. Keith Mountain, glaciologist and geographer, has worked for over 30 years as a researcher using glaciers as a primary indicator of global climate change. His research has taken him to Antarctica, China, Tibet, Alaska, Greenland, South America and Africa. He is currently a professor and Chair of the Department of Geography and Geosciences at the University of Louisville.

Dr. Mountain's goal is to help Kentuckians see that geography is more than knowing where a place is and being able to locate it on a map. He believes that the field is part of everyday life and a much-needed skill in a diversifying and globally expanding world.
