From the Bottom of the World: The Art and Science of Antarctica 

Bruce Museum Presents... From the Bottom of the World: The Art and Science of Antarctica

Presented in cooperation with Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, From the Bottom of the World: The Art and Science of Antarctica will convene experts in the art and science of this unique and fragile continent. Two research scientists from Lamont-Doherty, Jonny Kingslake and Kirsty Tinto, will reveal their startling new findings.

As part of The Art and Science of Antarctica, we will welcome to the Bruce—live, via Skype—Dr. Kim S. Bernard, associate professor of biological oceanography from Oregon State University, now based at Palmer Station in Antarctica. During this 15-minute live interview, she will answer questions from the audience about her research and her experience on the ice. The Bruce is grateful to the National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs for their assistance in arranging this extraordinary opportunity to hear directly from an on-the-ground expert on the state of the ocean at the bottom of the world.

Leonard Jacobs moderates this timely intersectional conversation.
