Teale Lecture: In the Footsteps of Late 19th Century Explorers: Reconstructing Environmental Change Across the Canadian High Arctic

October 25, 2018 @ 4:00 pm EDT

Konover Auditorium, Dodd Research Center
405 Babbidge Road, Unit 1205
Storrs, CT 6269 United States


Lecture by Dr. John England, Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Alberta 

Dr. England’s scientific contributions result from 50 years of fieldwork across Canada’s Arctic Archipelago documenting the nature of environmental change spanning Ice Age to present. His presentation will highlight this research, including the history of ancient ice sheets, sea ice and sea level that place dramatic modern changes of the Arctic environment in a necessary, long-term perspective. He will also include a reflection on how one’s career in science brings personal discoveries that infuse one’s contributions with a much deeper meaning and sense of reward. The lecture is intended to not only convey the excitement and importance of the science but also to promote public awareness of the precious heritage of the Arctic landscape. 

Free and open to the public.
