ESD Scientists Participate in “Above the Arctic Circle” Google Hangout

Source:  LBNL TABL

ArctichangoutLast week, several ESD scientists participated in a live Hangout from above the Arctic Circle in Alaska and at Berkeley Lab. The topic was how and why scientists study permafrost to better understand the vulnerable Arctic ecosystem—and what may happen to it as the climate changes.

Participating ESD scientists included, from Alaska, Craig Ulrich; from a CT scanning lab in Building 74, Tim Kneafsey and Yuxin Wu; and from a microbiology lab in Building 70, Romy Chakraborty and Neslihan Tas. Students from Elmhurst Community Prep in Oakland, CA and Ashwaubenon High School in Green Bay, WI, joined the hangout and asked questions.
