What does a ringed seal’s breathing hole look like and how do you find one on a vast sheet of sea ice? Dr. Brendan Kelly uses the canine skills of Cooper, a Black Labrador he trained to chase the scent of ringed seals and point to their holes. Passionate about wildlife and climate change, Melanie Duchin has loaned her dog to work with Brendan for the past 5 years. Watch Dr. Brendan Kelly, Micaela Ponce, Kevin Bakker and Dan Carlson as they measure and tag a female ringed seal on the frozen Chukchi Sea. Follow them as they return the seal by snowmobile to her breathing hole in the Elson Lagoon - and get a little seal slap in the process. How does the interaction of solar radiation on sea ice effect climate change?
Please join us as we chat live with Dr. Don Perovich, an expert in the fields of albedo effect, and sea-ice mass balance on climate.
In this video, ride in a special Mattracks truck across the ice sheet with geologist Christina Riesselman as she travels with ANDRILL Staff Scientist Richard Levy from McMurdo Station to the ANDRILL drill site. They investigate the truck’s special wheels, observe beautiful panoramas of the Transantarctic Mountains, and hear the drill running at the drill site. Join us for more conversation with David Ainley and other researchers studying Adelie penguins in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. An introduction to the cuica (pronounced KWEE-kah), a small friction drum used in Brazil's Carnival parade. A detailed demonstration of how to make this small friction drum, including a discussion of materials needed and how different kinds of materials make for cuicas that produce different sounds. The science behind this musical instrument, including the concepts of sound, vibration, resonance, and amplification. An introduction to a crowd-pleasing noisemaker called a sound sandwich, which you can adjust to raise or lower its pitch. A detailed demonstration of how to make this primitive wind instrument using little more than a straw, two craft sticks, and some rubber bands.
