Polar-Palooza: Polar research and the changing planet

Explorer Lecture series at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History:  Find out what Earth's polar regions can tell us about how and why our global climate is changing from scientists who've lived and worked in these icy, remote places. Ornithologist Dr. George Divoky of Friends of Cooper Island, geologist Dr. David Harwood of University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Antarctic Drilling Program, astronomer Dr. Ralph Harvey of Case Western Reserve University, and microbiologist Christine Foreman of Montana State University share what they've seen and learned in compelling presentations that use authentic artifacts and dramatic high-definition video clips. Discover why the poles matter to Cleveland.

Ticket information.

This event is part of Polar-Palooza, a multimedia interactive show -- supported by both NSF and NASA -- involving researchers, Alaskan natives, and in-person presentations about the Poles of the Earth, and the crucial part they play in the entire Earth system.
