Exploring Antarctica

Going Global: Episode #10

Join Doug Wiens, professor of earth and planetary sciences, as he describes his explorations of Antarctica. For some fifteen years, Wiens and his colleagues have been studying the physics behind ice movement and examining questions about where and how ice in the the western Antarctic ice sheet is melting.

A version of this podcast was first released in December 2012.

Many times when we go somewhere it suddenly hits you that you're the first person to ever be in this spot. I don't think you really get that anywhere else in the world.
