LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A trench in Antarctica has been named after a professor at the University of Kansas.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/1hkuhyh ) that the U.S. Board of Geographic Names recently named the “Gogineni Subglacial Trench” after Prasad Gogineni, who teaches electrical engineering and computer science.

The trench is hidden under the Byrd Glacier in the Victoria Land region of Antarctica.

Gogineni directs the university-based based Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, an international organization that works to predict effects of melting glaciers on sea levels. His research helped in discovering and describing the characteristics of the trench that’s named after him.
