WHERE IS LAKE EL’GYGYTGYN?
Monday, December 8th 2014, watch the FrontierScientists science special about drilling for ancient climate data by tuning in to 360 North. Watch over the air from Alaska, or watch online from anywhere in the world by visiting 360North.org at 5am UTC. This 30 minute installment features real scientists and their cutting edge work. At a frigid Siberian site where an asteroid impacted Earth 3.6 million years ago, Julie Brigham-Grette and her team drilled to extract an unprecedented climate record. Now Brigham-Grette brings the science back to classrooms.
Frontier Scientists, a National Science Foundation funded nonprofit, features scientists’ work through short videos.
