Vanishing Ice Speaker Series: At the Core - Discovering the History of Ice and Climate Change
Saturday 07 December 2013, 02:00pm

$5 admission to Old City Hall & Lightcatcher / $3 for only Lightcatcher / Free for Museum members

Anna McKee, Vanishing Ice artist & Eric Steig, isotope geochemist

The history of Antarctic ice can be seen in an 11,171-foot ice core collected by WAIS Divide Project scientists, which includes UW Professor of Glaciology and Geochemistry Eric Steig, who has researched polar and alpine regions for more than 20 years. Steig discusses their important findings while expeditionary artist Anna McKee uses her artwork from ice core expeditions to convey the fragility and resiliency of these unique ecosystems. The Vanishing Ice Speaker Series is presented by North Cascades Institute and Whatcom Museum and is made possible in part by a grant from Humanities Washington.
