Antarctica, it’s a harsh continent. Dave Riebel (‘00) has just returned from a year spent living and working at NOAA’s Atmospheric Research Observatory, part of the Amundsen-Scott research station located at the Geographic South Pole. While there, he was responsible for repairing and maintaining a suite of climate-monitoring equipment during six months of uninterrupted daylight, six months of uninterrupted night, and temperatures below -100⁰ F.
Come find out how one gets to the South Pole, what life is like once you get there, and what science we get out of the whole thing.
This seminar will take place in Olin 114 beginning at 3:30 pm.
