Shots inside Shackleton's Hut at Cape Royds In this program, learn about meteorite hunting in Antarctica with Ralph Harvey who leads the Antarctic Search for Meteorites program (ANSMET). The POLENET project takes scientists all over the continent to install equipment, and to get there they leave from Williams Field, an airport near McMurdo Station. Willy Field has a runway equipped to handle the largest aircraft that fly into Antarctica. However, this runway is different; there's no pavement here - this runway is made of ice.
POLENET's Stephanie Konfal gives us a look at Willy Field.
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. Ice Stories correspondent Kelly Carroll reports from a storm at Tango 1 Camp, a remote camp deep in the Transantarctic Mountains. In this live webcast, we look deeper into the film 'Ice People.' We speak with noted geologists Allan Ashworth and Adam Lewis, and filmmaker Anne Aghion in our San Francisco studio. In this program Ice Stories crew member Ron Hipschman speaks with Paul Ponganis, who studies emperor penguins. 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. Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he shows us a demo related to Antarctic ice! Paul demonstrates how using Antarctic ice can help tell us what the temperatures of the earth's oceans were, thousands of years ago.
