C. Ian Jackson. C. Ian Jackson has had a most varied career. He was one of four graduate students who spent a year on northern Ellesmere Island, manning a weather station for Operation Hazen -- Canada's contribution to the International Geophysical Year (IGY) 1957-58. By the time he had completed his thesis on the meteorology of Lake Hazen, N.W.T., he was a staff member in the geography department at the London School of Economics. From there he returned to a series of environmental positions with the Government of Canada, and then in the United Nations Secretariat. He divides his time between Connecticut and Yorkshire.
