Join the Echo Climate Change Symposium for a panel discussion in which the panelists will share an overview of the impacts of climate change. The panelists will include Glenn Sheehan, Tim Churchill, and Jeff Williams. Join photographer David Arnold as he talks about photographing climate change. Join panelists Richard Glenn, Jim Leavitt, and others to discuss the impact of climate change on Arctic Ecosystems and Populations TI staff educator Sandra Robbins touts the merits of a book that examines how to address student misconceptions in the science classroom. The book is Targeting Students’ Science Misconceptions: Physical Science Concepts Using the Conceptual Change Model by Joseph Stepans, published by the Idea Factory in 2003. 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. Dr. Marvin Speece, professor of geophysical engineering at Montana Tech and co-Principal Investigator of the Offshore New Harbor Project, discusses how their expedition collects scientific data. 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. In this interview from Greenland, glaciologist Mark Fahnestock describes the roar of a 1000-foot iceberg dropping off the Jakobshavn Isbræ into the Ilulissat Icefjord. Includes time-lapse photography of this massive calving event.
