Who is Laramie Potts?

Laramie Potts is an American scientist at Ohio State University who identified the Wilkes Land mass concentration in Antarctica in collaboration with Ralph von Frese. He is from South Africa. He currently teaches geomatics at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

Potts is a Post-Doctoral Researcher in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Geodetic Science.

He and von Frese used gravity measurements by NASA's GRACE satellites to identify a 200 mile wide mass concentration. This mass anomaly is centered within a larger ring-like structure visible in radar images of the land surface beneath the Antarctic ice cap. This combination led these researchers to speculate that it may be the result of a large impact event.
