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.
PolarTREC teacher Michelle Brown and her research team conducted this PolarConnect event from McMurdo Station, Antarctica. Learn more about Michelle and her team as they study human impacts in Antarctica.
This one hour PolarConnect event Celebrates Antarctica Day 2011 with PolarTREC teacher Michelle Brown (at McMurdo Station) and esteemed polar researcher Dr. M. Kennicutt II. The two presenters share their perspectives on the importance of Antarctica's geography, science, and model for international peaceful collaboration.
PolarTREC teacher Michelle Brown writes for the Austin American Statesman about her upcoming expedition to Antarctica. Michelle outlines her plans to travel to Antarctica to work with researchers at the remote McMurdo Station and the automated geophysical observatory at the South Pole Station. In addition to helping researchers study the human impacts on the southern continent, she will also install
