Live From IPY Event Information
You may register for this live events at:

12 March is IPY Science Day, focusing on Changing Earth; Past, Present, and Future.

The IPY Science Day on March 12th will focus on change over geological time, especially the glacial and interglacial periods that have occurred during the past million years, and cycles of ocean- atmosphere interactions that give rise to regional climate variations on scales of decades to centuries. Understanding these processes, and the science projects that investigate
them, is critical in order to put recent human- induced climate change into context.

Join the Live from IPY event on 12 March and talk to researchers in the Arctic and Antarctic conducting research that relates to changing earth.

Event starts at 9:00 AM Alaska Standard Time [8:00AM HST, 10:00AM PST, 11AM MST, 12PM CST, 1PM EST].  Register for this live event at:
