“Lessons Learned from a Frozen Continent: Performing Research in Antarctica”

September 20th
Von Walden - Geography

ABSTRACT: Apsley Cherry-Gerrard, the youngest member of Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated journey to Antarctica, once said, "Polar Exploration is at once the cleanest and most isolated way of having a bad time which has been devised." Come experience what it takes to perform research in Antarctica today, nearly 100 years after the South Pole was first reached. Learn about on-going research at the UI to understand the climate of this frozen continent.
