DRI Science at the Springs is a new multimedia, science storytelling series that explores environmental research, personal narratives, and climate solutions. In the series, Desert Research Institute scientists and other guests address some of the world’s most urgent concerns, while also telling the tale of what it means to live in Nevada on the front lines of a changing climate.
This evening is dedicated to exploring the incredible story of ice core researchers and their journey to the arctic to extract ice cores that hold within them evidence of past societies, volcanic eruptions, and even plagues. You’ll learn about the incredible lengths that researchers go to in order to extract these cores, the technological advances that have made this work possible, and the impact that their discoveries have had on our understanding of history.
