What's the latest in Antarctic paleo-climate research? This web seminar, targeting educators of students in grades 7-12, will introduce participants to the nation's newest ice core expedition… SPICE Core! Investigators seeking data from the past 40,000 years are drilling a 1500 meter ice core to study chemical isotopes, tiny particles called aerosols and atmospheric gases trapped in earth's great southern ice sheet. The goal is to investigate environmental change since the last glacial/interglacial transition. Why was the South Pole targeted? What criteria affect the specific site selection for drilling? What new kinds of technology were required? Dr. T.J. Fudge will answer your questions, and share what it's like to work in the Pole's extreme environment.

Online Courses: AMNH Seminars on Science: Water: Environmental Science
Grade Level: College, Elementary School, High School, Informal Education, Middle School
Water — its location, condition, and use — is a critical environmental issue. Central to all ecosystems, water is essential to life as we know it. It shapes our planet on every level, from the chemical properties of the H2O molecule to the central role of water in global climate. This course will focus on why water is such a critical resource, the impact of human consumption on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the social, economic, and environmental...  [view full summary]
Water — its location, condition, and use — is a critical environmental issue. Central to all ecosystems, water is essential to life as we know it. It shapes our planet on every level, from the chemical properties of the H2O molecule to the central role of water in global climate. This course will focus on why water is such a critical resource, the impact of human consumption on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the social, economic, and environmental implications of water management.

Along with a solid grasp of these water-related issues, students should come away grounded in the science that underlies all environmental studies. They will be able to: 1) understand the interrelationships between living things and the ecosystems they inhabit; 2) analyze environmental problems caused by changing natural conditions and by human activity; and 3) evaluate ways to resolve and/or prevent these problems.

CEUs and graduate credits available. Each course costs $495. Graduate credit is available at an additional cost. For more information go to http://learn.amnh.org.
