Event information

In collaboration with Columbia University’s Earth Institute, we would like to share about a series of webinars for K-12 students and educators. The EI LIVE K-12 channel features experts from across the Earth Institute presenting relevant sustainability content in 45-minute live sessions for K12 students and educators. This Thursday, Frank Nitsche, Research Scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will help students learn about the interaction of ice and ocean water around Antarctica, the main driver of melting today. He will talk about how and where warm ocean water is getting to the ice and melting it, how we observe and measure ocean water and how it is making it to the ice. During each EI K-12 session the NASA Education Program Specialist from NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies provides supplemental NASA education, content, platforms and resources relevant to the weekly topic for further exploration and discovery.

This week’s episode (May 13), is entitled A World of Change: Ice and Ocean Interactions in Antarctica and will be presented at 4:00 PM - 4:45 PM ET.
