Public tours have returned - join the Byrd Center Wednesday evening for a virtual public tour!
Embark on a virtual tour of the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, followed by a tour of one of several sites visited by our researchers. On the tour, visitors will have the opportunity to explore Scott Hall in a virtual setting, including the Polar Rock Repository, Ice Core Facility, and a sneak peak from inside the Class 100 Clean Laboratory. Then, visitors will be "transported" to Peru to stand atop the highest tropical glacier in the world - Quelccaya. Join researchers as they collect core samples, and enjoy the view of the southern Andes Mountains from 18,670 ft above sea level in this special first-ever tour of the glacier.
If you require an accommodation such as live captioning or ASL interpretation to participate in this event, please contact Karina Peggau at firstname.lastname@example.org (email) or 614-688-8279 (phone). Requests made by December 31 will generally allow us to provide seamless access, but the university will make every effort to meet requests made after this date.
