The Fragile Ice
This web seminar focused on clues to past weather conditions found on snow packs.
This interesting field of study was presented by Dr. Mary Albert, a senior research
engineer at the U.S. Army ERDC Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab in Hanover,
New Hampshire. She is also an Adjunct Professor at the Thayer School of Engineering
at Dartmouth College. Her research focuses on heat, mass, and electromagnetic transfer
in porous media. In this seminar Dr. Albert discussed snow crystals and the ways
they change their shapes; the changes that take place on the shape of snow crystals
over time, after colder and warmer events. To view this seminar and gain an understanding
of past weather climates and how that helps to predict current patterns check out
our archive and the PowerPoint presentations. These Web Seminars are designed for
grade 5–8 educators.
