Scientists at Palmer Research Station in Antarctica talk about their research: How is the rich marine ecosystem just offshore responding to melting sea ice and global climate change? Join Exploratorium senior scientist Paul Doherty once more as he serves up hands-on activities related to Antarctic science. Join Exploratorium senior scientist Paul Doherty as he serves up more hands-on activities related to science in Antarctica. Join us in conversation with David Ainley and other researchers, as they wrap up there field season at the Adelie penguin breeding colonies in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. Today we wrap up our conversations with the ANDRILL scientists (including project leader Dave Harwood) and hear about what lies ahead for the project. Watch ANDRILL scientists examine a sediment core, find out about new developments, and discover ancient diatoms (single-celled marine organisms). How do ANDRILL scientists drill and retrieve sediment cores from under the ice and sea, and why do they do it? Join us for an overview of the ANDRILL (ANtarctic geological DRILLing) Project, a multinational collaboration among 200-plus scientists, students, and educators from five nations, to recover sediment cores (layered sections of earth) from under the Antarctic ice and seas. Join us as we talk with Dr. William Fry, emeritus professor at Stanford University and the father of gelotology, the study of humor and laughter, and their effects on the human body. Craig George and Glenn Sheehan explain how scientists have learned from Iñupiaq hunters to make more accurate counts of bowhead whales.
