Ice Stories:  Preparing to Dig (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:28:47
One of the first projects to move into the new BASC(Barrow Arctic Science Consortium)facility, the archeologist team of Anne Jensen and Laura Thomas, are preparing for their season of digging up the past. We will catch up with them in their lab: take a look at their tools and specimens, and learn about their plans as they prepare for their upcoming field work.

Return to Mars:  Mars Phoenix Lander Mission (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:28:34
Learn more about the new mission to Mars! The Mars Phoenix Lander touched down on the Red Planet on Sunday, May 25, 2008, and began collecting data. Phoenix is designed to study the history of water and search for complex organic molecules in the Martian arctic's ice-rich soil. Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he walks us through the mission and shows us the first pictures that the Phoenix Lander sends back!

Ice Stories:  The Tundra and Climate Change, Part 2 (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:19:01
In our second Webcast with biologist Steve Hastings, we'll learn about his collaborative research experiment in Barrow. As the climate changes in the Arctic, the amount of water on the tundra is affected (more rainfall, shorter freeze periods, changing sea levels,etc). How will these changes effect the tundra's release of greenhouse gases? Will less permafrost mean more or less CO2 in the atmosphere? Will warmer temperatures cause more evaporation? Will that be good or bad for the environment?

Ice Stories:  Searching for Life in the Ice (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:22:45
The Census of Marine Life is a growing global network of researchers in more than 70 nations engaged in a ten year (2000-2010) mission to assess and explain the diversity, distribution, and abundance of marine life in the oceans. Rolf Gradinger is an expert in Sea Ice Communities, studying the tiny animals that actually live inside the ice and those that live on the bottom of the ice sheets. We'll chat with Rolf about his current work, drilling ice cores just off Barrow, and looking for some of the world's most unique fauna.

Ice Stories:  The Tundra and Climate Change (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:16:26
Meet Barrow scientist and Ice Stories blogger Steve Hastings, who is investigating how the tundra responds to climate change. What exactly is the tundra? How can vegetation, no more than 3 inches tall, play such an important role in the world's climate? Why does the tundra release so much CO2?
