Join us for a virtual tour of the Byrd Center! This tour will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Register via Zoom to 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, led by Environmental Geochemistry Research Group member Chris Gardner, visitors will be "transported" to the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica to experience fieldwork. Join researchers as they collect samples, and enjoy the view of the Trans-Antarctic Mountains in this special tour. The McMurdo Dry Valleys is the driest place on Earth, yet home to interesting ecology, geology, and history. Registration for the tour is free and open to the public. Best for ages 8+.
