Frontier Scientists programs will be featured weekly on 360 North, streaming online at and available in Alaska over the air in Anchorage and Juneau, and on GCI Cable, DirectTV, & Dish Network. Mondays at 8pm {5am UTC} Oct.6th – Dec.8th 2014, catch ten installments of 30 minute Frontier Scientists video programs featuring contemporary scientific discoveries. Real scientists present their work – impactful science underway in one of the last great frontiers.

Frontier Scientists 2014 Program Schedule for PBS – ALASKA Airing in Alaska at 8pm OR online at 360 { 8:00pm AST = 9:00pm PST = 10:00pm MST = 11:00pm CST = 12:00am EST (midnight) = 5:00am UTC }

Oct.6 Alongside crashing waves, archaeologists work to document THE PETROGLYPHS OF KODIAK ISLAND, prehistoric Native rock art depicting mysterious faces and animals.

Oct.13 Every year birds flock to Alaska. This MIGRATION lets them breed and feed in rich Arctic summer lands, but how do they cope with deadly and unpredictable Arctic weather? Scientists use creative techniques to find out.

Oct.20 Geothermal energy is the potential prize at PILGRIM HOT SPRINGS, where tests and drilling help determine whether this resource can provide power to the city of Nome.

Oct.27 Volcanologists at the USGS – Alaska Volcano Observatory track restless COOK INLET VOLCANOES, using diverse monitoring equipment to provide warning when an eruption is imminent.

Nov.3 Scientists use high-tech supercomputers and COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE to model and understand some of today’s most complex issues.

Nov.10 MODELING ARCTIC WATERS isn’t an easy task, but innovative data gathering methods and computational science help map Arctic waters and fast-changing sea ice conditions.

Nov.17 Geophysical researchers record CHANGING PERMAFROST trends to better understand the impacts of shiftinging climate conditions on frozen Arctic ground currently keeping greenhouse gases locked beneath the tundra.

Nov.24 Wildlife biologists and Park rangers in Denali help the Park’s grizzly bear population thrive in their natural environment while promoting safe interactions between GRIZZLIES and visitors.

Dec.1 ARCTIC GROUND SQUIRRELS are cute furballs with very unusual lives. They survive body temperatures below freezing and use a superpowered internalized clock to stay on schedule – scientists work to learn how.

Dec.8 WHERE IS LAKE EL’GYGYTGYN? is often asked about a frigid Siberian site where an asteroid impacted Earth. There, Julie Brigham-Grette and her team drilled to extract a climate record stretching back 3.6 million years. Now Brigham-Grette brings the science back to classrooms.
