As the Arctic continues to warm, chemicals locked in the snow can be released-either into the seas or evaporated into the air. Dr. Glenn Rowland studies the chemicals locked in the ice to help us understand what is there now and how it will react when released into the environment.
Penn State University glaciologist Dr. Richard Alley explains why ice is cool. Join Exploratorium physicists Paul Doherty and Stephanie Chasteen as they examine the past, present, and future of climate change. In this show, Paul and Stephanie discuss the future of our climate. Learn more about the oceans, global warming, feedback effects, glacial ice and sea ice, and some things you can to do help. Exploratorium biologist Karen Kalumuck will examine how increasing temperatures affect specific organisms at the poles—from phytoplankton to polar bears! Watch as Exploratorium physicists Paul Doherty and Stephanie Chasteen play around with the leading greenhouse gas: carbon dioxide. What is it? How much is there in our atmosphere? What does it do that is so harmful to the environment? Join two of our High School Explainers as they show our live webcast audience how to make snowflakes at home with a water bottle, styrofoam plates, dry ice and a sponge. Live from the South Pole-tunneling under the ice in Antarctica! Exploratorium staff members Mary Miller and Noel Wanner report back on the scientific studies going on at the South Pole. Join the Origins team as they travel to Antarctica. We sent Mary, Noel, Paul, and Julie to explore scientific wonders from McMurdo to the Pole. Learn all about the extreme science being conducted at the South Pole in a daily dispatch from Terra Australis Incognita! Visit the Penguin Ranch and learn more about these fascinating creatures. Exploratorium staff members Paul Doherty and Noel Wanner travelled to Mt. Erebus, a volcano in the Antarctica region, to join scientists doing experiments in the field.
