A researcher adjusts some of the acoustic monitoring equipment she set up in Beacon Valley. She and her team have instrumented rocks to “listen” to cracks as they form over the winter to study how rocks weather and erode in the hyper-arid conditions of the McMurdo Dry Valleys.

Join scientists live from McMurdo Station, Antarctica as they talk about the lake, stream, and soil research being done in the less than 2% of the continent that is not covered in snow: the McMurdo Dry Valleys.

Dr. Michael Gooseff, PI, McMurdo Dry Valleys LTER, provides an insider’s overview of the project plus a LIVE, Life From Antarctica virtual check-in with team members about their research and what it is like to live and work in the world’s southernmost continent!
