Chat live with researchers aboard an Antarctic icebreaker

Join oceanographer Oscar Schofield as he chats with researchers aboard the Nathaniel B. Palmer as they study the marine ecosystems of the West Antarctic Peninsula. Their research, part of the National Science Foundation’s Long-Term Ecological Research program, catalogs the effects of climate change on the environment around the Antarctic Peninsula, one of the fastest-warming regions on Earth. In this live Zoom event, learn how the Antarctic Peninsula has changed over the past several decades and how these changes affect life at every level of the food web, from tiny crustaceans to penguins, seals and whales.
