Rodrigo Zamora Print

Magellan and  Electronic  Engineering from the Technical University Federico Santa Maria. He has participated in expeditions to Antarctica, Patagonia, Greenland and the Andes being responsible for the planning stage, measurements and radar data processing.  His areas of interest are the geophysical methods applied primarily to problems of glaciology.
