Geologist Chistina Riesselman explains how studying 3-million-year-old sediment from Antarctica is providing a glimpse of what our planet's climate might look like if atmospheric carbon dioxide continues to rise as projected. In May 2009, the ROV Jason captured these images of violent explosions of the West Mata volcano near Fiji. At almost 4,000 feet underwater, this is the deepest erupting volcano ever witnessed and captured on video. It's also the first time anyone has ever observed the formation of deep-ocean seafloor as it's happening. We speak with biologist David Ainley, who has been studying Adelie penguins in Antarctica for more than 25 years Our Exploratorium team talks to scientists from POLENET (Polar Earth Observing Network). In this interview from in front of the Canada Glacier in Antarctica’s Taylor Valley, Hassan Basagic from Portland State University describes the essential role of polar glaciers in supporting the bare-bones ecosystems in the Dry Valleys. We tour the NOAA Atmospheric Research Observatory at the South Pole where scientists are monitoring carbon dioxide levels, CFCs, solar radiation, and the ozone hole. Meet marine biologist George Matsumoto from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute and learn about the floating ecosytems that thrive around icebergs in Antarctic waters.
Join us as UC Berkeley's Dr. Robert Levenson interviews acclaimed psychologist Dr. Paul Ekman about his 40 years of research into the universality of human facial expressions. The talk includes photographs and never-before-seen footage from Dr. Ekman's fieldwork among the Fore, an isolated New Guinea tribe he first visited in the early 1960s. In this webcast from Antarctica, we meet up with Ted Scambos, a glaciologist from the University of Colorado and the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
