The Fragile Ice

All web seminar participants use online tools that allow them to mark-up presenter's slides or share desktop applications in addition to engaging in chat with others online and answering poll questions. 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.
