San Francisco's meteorological landscape is as unique as its social landscape. Tune in as we investigate why our city has many microclimates.
At the South Pole, the Ice Stories crew met up with correspondent Zoe Courville just before she and her team embarked on their 3,000 km traverse across the desolate and frigid East Antarctic Ice Sheet. In this video, Zoe gives us a tour of the vehicles they are taking on their cross-continent journey, including their living module, sleeping quarters, and science sled. Hear from marine biologist Dr. Stacy Kim, who uses a small camera-equipped remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to investigate the bottom-dwelling creatures under the sea ice. The POLENET project installed their newest high-precision GPS system on Deverall Island, Antarctica. These GPS systems tell scientists how much the ground underneath the ice sheet is moving upward. This has important implications on the movement of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and its interplay with the rock below. Learn more about it in this audio report from correspondent Kelly Carroll. In this audio dispatch, correspondent Jack Walter describes his first week at the team's field camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Hear about their research on lakes under the glaciers and get a slice of life as a remote polar scientist. Ice Stories correspondent Howie Koss interviews James Van Matre, Waste Management Supervisor at McMurdo Station. We talk about Antarctica's waste management practices of the past and present, and why it's important to recycle. Glaciologist and Ice Stories correspondent Nadine Quintana Krupinski gives us a brief tour of her deep field camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Meet glaciologist Slawek Tulaczyk and his team, who work in the fast-emerging field of ice sheet dynamics. They speak to us just after returning from a month at a remote camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. 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? Artist Sheldon Brown creates an urban/suburban/rural environment in which the visitor literally "paints" the flying landscape with highways, buildings, and automobiles. This exhibit was part of the Virtual Unreality exhibition.
