Science for Alaska Series

A series of ten unique science lectures will make their television premier during the weekly science block on 360 North starting this fall.

These events were organized as a public outreach project by the UAF Geophysical Institute. They were presented in different venues around the state earlier this year. A 'traveling road show' of top scientists presented forums in Fairbanks, Juneau, Anchorage and Seward.

The program subjects in the Science for Alaska series range in topic from volcanoes, climate change, glaciers, and whales to the international polar year.

The program specific titles for the series are:

-Mirror Images, Exploring Auroras at each of the Poles
-Seals on Thin Ice, An Effect of Climate Change
-Warmer Climate, Thawing Permafrost, What will happen to Alask's Water?
-Recreating the World of Alaska's Dinosuars
-The International Polar Year 2007-2008: Opportunities for Alaska
-Sled Dog Science
-Some Like it Hot: Volcanoes in the Infrared
-A Different Season: People in a Changing Climate
-Understanding Belugas: When Scientists and Hunters Collaborate
-Dynamic Glaciers of Southeast Alaska

You won't want to miss these unique Alaska science programs this fall on 360 North.
