Pennsylvania State University
Sunday, March 16, 2:00 – 3:00 pm
Cayuga Nature Center

Learn about ice-coring science and the effort involved in drilling operations and science logging in a field campaign in West Antarctica. John will discuss the climate science we’re learning from the ice core, and what we know about the stability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.

John Fegyveresi is a Ph.D. candidate in Geoscience at Penn State University, working with Dr. Richard Alley. He has been to Antarctica five times.
