The CSU School of Global Environmental Sustainability Antarctic Lecture Series presents Collecting climate data in Antarctica while addressing its carbon footprint, by MCM Researcher and Field Technician Krista Myers on March 22, 2022 from 6:30-7:30 PM MDT.
In this virtual lecture, Krista will talk about her 2021-22 research expedition to the McMurdo Dry Valleys where she spent four months maintaining a network of long-term climate and hydrological monitoring stations. She will discuss data collection in some of the most remote landscapes on Earth and COVID-19 impacts on fieldwork in Antarctica. In 2021, Krista spearheaded the MCM LTER’s first ever carbon neutral travel to Antarctica, and has worked collectively to reduce emissions and waste generated in the field. This talk will be an inspiring mix of science and storytelling with respect to climate change.
This lecture is free to attend; however, advance registration is required to receive the Zoom Webinar link. Questions about this event can be directed to Dr. Andre Franco at Andre.Franco@colostate.edu.
