Through this demonstration and review of the attached research documents and the expedition PolarConnect event archive you will better be able to visualize how warming deep ocean currents undermine the ice sheets of Antarctica.
To determine, through a demonstration and review of a scientific abstract, how warm water currents speed up ice sheet loss and sub-ice
As a teacher on the NB Palmer Totten Cruise in the winter of 2014, I successfully traversed the Magnetic South Pole. This is a wandering point on the Earth’s surface where geomagnetic field lines are directed vertically upwards. As an Outdoor Educator I utilize compasses regularly to navigate. The traverse of the Magnetic South Pole inspired this lesson
This is part two of a small series following Parishville-Hopkinton Central School science teacher Glenn W. Clark’s involvement last winter in the National Science Foundation’s 2013-2014 Antarctic Research Consortium research trip to Eastern Antarctica. Since his return to the north country last spring, he has been educating the public about the excursion in a three piece presentation on science, expedition
This 1 hour webinar conducted by PolarTREC teacher Glenn Clark studying the Totten Glacier System in Antarctica. Glenn focuses on the shipboard science activities to understand the marine ecosystem and glacier systems of east Antarctica.
This PolarConnect event was held on 16 December 2010 with Heidi Roop who is working with an ice core drilling team on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. This live event was broadcast and had a live component at the AGU 2010 Fall Meeting.
