MONROE - Like many people who live in northern places, Albany resident Dennis Duling goes south during the winter. In fact, during the winter, Duling goes as far south as he can. Since 1999, Duling has worked on various drilling projects in Antarctica, most recently returning from a two-month excursion drilling into subglacial lakes earlier this year.
