ASSW2021 PEI Community Meeting
julia dooley: Why don't we go ahead and get started, I hate to keep people waiting. julia dooley: Hopefully we'll pick up a few more people. julia dooley: But i'm so glad to see so many of you here and thank you for joining us this our Community meeting some of our Council members for P, I will be here some.
julia dooley: Council meeting in a way, but we have some great things to share with you, so that open community and we're always hoping more people will join our community. julia dooley: So please feel free if you feel inspired to reach out and we will be posting information about joining our Council and just another week or so I believe. julia dooley: But I guess i'll introduce myself, I am the President color educators, international, we have an executive committee that governs or guides the work that goes on the next level would be the Council members, we.
julia dooley: Have about 20 Council members from around the world. julia dooley: And then, of course, general memberships But who are we exactly well, we are you were a network comprised of experts that share polar science, with a global community and so we're all that you are. julia dooley: we've just worked on our new mission vision so i'll just choose a few words from that so connecting polar education, research and the global community.
julia dooley: We lead dialogue and collaboration between educators and researchers and our aim is to highlight and share the global relevance of the polar regions. julia dooley: So we're an essential network of educators broadly termed educators in every capacity and researchers, we represent all who work to inspire appreciation and build knowledge of the polar regions. julia dooley: There connectedness to all earth systems and their importance to all humans across latitudes and cultures. julia dooley: So a ppi members anyone who's interested in making the polls accessible promoting understanding and stewardship of the polar regions and seeking to grow literacy by communicating polar science to the world.
julia dooley: Our goals I won't read them that's all available on our website so if you click on the about us, you can read more and delve more into that, but are we like to use the words communicate collaborate and create to help guide our work so um briefly about us. julia dooley: So we have our Council members but i'm here today with us, are these Members so myself. julia dooley: Sophie who's done such a great job putting all the slides together and all the pieces and Betsy making sure that they all work well and you lose got a great presentation to share with us and Pierre has many interesting components, Luis and inca and just tell from our Council okay. julia dooley: So let's see our. julia dooley: This slide So what will happen here, this is an interactive workshop, so we hope that you will help us pretend well. julia dooley: I like to use the word play a little bit I forgot to mention that, too, I am actually an elementary school educator so I work in formal education with younger students so forgive me if I use some of those terms.
julia dooley: So if you're new to our Community, we hope this will give you an idea of the work that we do as a network. julia dooley: we're going to share with you some of the work that our Members do within our communities, our own communities and hopefully give you an idea of ways that you might like to participate and join our Community if you're with us already. julia dooley: We have some projects that we've detailed a little bit here so ways that you can become involved in this upcoming year if you haven't already.
julia dooley: So we're going to think about engaging you in our polar resource book and oh that's right i'm a timekeeper i've got to make sure we keep on time. julia dooley: we're going to share some science activities with you. julia dooley: As the events that are coming up that lead to our P, I Iceland conference we were supposed to be doing that this spring, but I guess, in light of.
julia dooley: course the pandemic, but then the eruption currently so maybe it was good that we postpone that until next year. julia dooley: But we do have some great events that are coming up to whet your appetite a bit and get interest built and also involve you if you're. julia dooley: not sure you want to go, but at least we can participate in some of the activities and fun and then we've been working really diligently to involve ourselves in the Arctic science ministerial coming up, so we have three deliverables that we want to share with you, too, so during the meeting. julia dooley: We might ask you to use this zoom annotate.
julia dooley: tools, I know from my students work, not everybody is able to do that, I think it depends. julia dooley: On the. julia dooley: version of zoom that you have is what my students tell me, sometimes but Louise is going to walk us through how to use annotate.
Louise Huffman: Okay, so i'm Louise huffman just myself a little bit later we're just going to take a quick look today if you haven't already used annotate tools, when someone is sharing their screen. Louise Huffman: you'll see you are viewing on this one, you are viewing Betsy welcoming screen and right next to that and on my example it, whereas sharing Sophie weeks is screen. Louise Huffman: So you can see what's happening really in real life, right now, and then on mine when we took the picture of sophie's screen you'll see view options right next to the person yay somebody is already using annotate down there.
Louise Huffman: When you click on view options go down to annotate and then you'll get. Louise Huffman: A. Louise Huffman: group of things that you can pick like the text box, you can type in words or dropbox you can draw a line or the stamp box somebody stamped a heart.
Louise Huffman: So what i'm going to ask you to do right now is to open your view options find annotate look at that list of things pick out a stamp and then Betsy could you go to the next slide. Louise Huffman: there's a map of the world, so, if you would stamp on there where you are right now and we'll see where everybody is. Louise Huffman: So i'm going to get a stamp too. Louise Huffman: And I weighed down here in Southwest Florida, and the United States, so we'll see where everybody is. Louise Huffman: So you got a lot of people popping up in Europe Alaska Florida. Louise Huffman: looks like Iceland.
Louise Huffman: Little yellow ones are kind of hard to see. Louise Huffman: But, but you can see how that works and hopefully everybody can figure it out, because in a little while. Louise Huffman: We may be asking you to go to your annotate tools and annotate a couple of things on some of the other examples, slides and we're hoping to engage show you some ways, you can engage your audiences. Louise Huffman: Who are not maybe not science audiences, but if you go into a classroom where you're talking to a Community a Community audience whether you're on zoom or in person we're going to show you some ways that you can share your science. Okay.
Great. Louise Huffman: When you're presenting Betsy just cleared the screen, so you can see it up at the top, there is a clear when you're using this with somebody you need to clear the screen one other little secret, if you want to get your mouse back you need to click the mouse. Louise Huffman: In the toolbar and then you get your mouse back just okay. Betsy Wilkening: All right, i'm unmuted so what we're going to do today is give you some short little activities demonstrations things that you can do to engage people engage your audience and being able to learn more about the science. Betsy Wilkening: There will be a need to decide the supplies and challenge that will have to introduce it and we have all of these different speakers that are going to share today. Betsy Wilkening: So for mine, I was going to introduce a phenomenon in the United States when we're teaching science, a lot of our science.
Betsy Wilkening: standards have changed. Betsy Wilkening: To be phenomenon based where you're introducing a phenomenon to your students and then having them challenge to. Betsy Wilkening: comprehend that to investigate further to learn more about that particular phenomenon within the larger context, so we have. Betsy Wilkening: For mine was supplies was a ice cube and salt shaker and string and you're challenging students to pick up your ice with a piece of string and. Betsy Wilkening: I don't think mines working so whether they say that when you try to do a demonstration for science it's biology it'll crawl away if it's chemistry it'll smell, and if it's physics that won't work so maybe this is physics, even though I think of it more as chemistry.
Betsy Wilkening: But basically, what you would do is you take your ice cube and then you put the string over it, and then you sprinkle salt on it. Betsy Wilkening: And let it sit for 60 seconds i'll try a second one and do the same thing. Betsy Wilkening: And i'll leave it to sit for a while and we can come back to it and see if it's worked. Betsy Wilkening: Let that sit for a while.
Betsy Wilkening: move forward what you're learning in this and what we're introducing to our students with this is the concept of. Betsy Wilkening: The freezing point of water, so when you add salt, the. Betsy Wilkening: It depresses or lowers the freezing point of water and. Betsy Wilkening: The sense it lowers the freezing point of water to below zero degrees when you add the salt, to the I skip it melts a thin layer on top of the ice and then the water refreezes around the string allowing you to pick it up with a string. Betsy Wilkening: So, now that your audience knows that salt water has a different freezing point than freshwater you can lead them and understanding the formation and importance of CIS.
Betsy Wilkening: And in this lesson from the polar resource book it's where the audience creates and observes the brain channel formed in the ice, so one of the ice cubes there's just fresh eyes the other one is salt water ice. Betsy Wilkening: And the salt gets expelled just to see is forms and that's where you have a whole new ocean ecosystem, with a lot of micro organisms living lab. Betsy Wilkening: So you can see, these are directly from the. Betsy Wilkening: Polish example it shows some illustrations of. Betsy Wilkening: It and then it shows how scientists do this out in the field.
julia dooley: sorry that looks like my slides I was just getting some things out that I will need it so as a elementary school teacher one way that I like to engage my young audiences and audiences of all ages actually thinking about ice. julia dooley: or snow crystals one issue that I have. julia dooley: From here basics of snow and the structure of snow and thinking about that as molecular structure of water and how I send freezes and. julia dooley: Students at young ages, of course, we all like to get our scissors out and take a piece of paper and fold the paper and cut out beautiful snowflakes but usually the easiest way to do that is to fold the paper and then fold the paper again, but then you end up with square snowflakes.
julia dooley: Pretty hanging from the ceiling in an elementary school, but not exactly correct, so a couple of ways that I like to introduce this topic and i've used materials from a website called snow crystals.com. julia dooley: I does have a lot of material available and some really beautiful photographs, but I also wanted to mention one of our Council members to Martin who's not on the call right now. julia dooley: has taken some beautiful images of snowflakes snow crystals ice crystals whenever it snows around his house so next slide there's a link actually to a video that he has on. julia dooley: YouTube that you can access and i'm sure he would be fine if you reached out to him and asked him for some of his photographs to use for this, but I like to this no crystals calm has lots of. julia dooley: snow pictures so i've taken images of those just made cards that I lay out on a table somewhere.
julia dooley: That I like to have people come and just sort through them and i've noticed students and adults as well start naturally classifying the has the crystal shapes into their different patterns what they look like, so this is from snow crystals calm so. julia dooley: Taking some of these things, and then it actually is a sorting activity, but then thinking about how the snow forms, and these are available, also on snow crystals calm. julia dooley: So snow morphology so thinking about comparing humidity and temperature and add that as a guide as to what the ice crystals are going to look like so den rights or the columns or ice crystals that don't painful instinct your face. julia dooley: But thinking about why snow is shaped the way it is.
julia dooley: With structure. julia dooley: and running. iPhone di Leonardo: Through our doing associate them. julia dooley: And then putting the the molecules together so that you have six.
julia dooley: points on your snow crystals instead of just four or making yeah eight pointed snowflakes. julia dooley: And Joanne is telling me if you fold your paper and cut out snow paper in half and thirds, yes, so I have a spatial folding problem with paper and it's a try as, I might I always seem to get it wrong. julia dooley: Anyhow, I, like the drawing activity so i've had this word collected snow crystal shapes that students have drawn using my bag of markers anything blue I like to use and then collect them and actually on the third image they're putting them together so that they make a. julia dooley: ice core kind of a shape and thinking about.
julia dooley: snow piling up over a large period of time and how the mass of that starts compacting it but Louise is going to talk more about that coming up in a presentation slide she's going to do. julia dooley: So I thought, just as a fun activity what we could do is go ahead and try using annotate or, if you would like to do some images on your own and then upload them I guess let's move to the next slide but see. I should. julia dooley: make this a large screen So if you want to right here, take your annotate tool. julia dooley: and draw on the slide itself. julia dooley: let's see i'm going to make this a blue because I like the blue, so I like to tell my students to start out with oops it's hard to do this without a mouse.
julia dooley: That didn't work. julia dooley: yeah start making six points and then adding on this is beautiful I love this it's so cute. julia dooley: But if you would like to do this and add some more drawings and upload it into the folder maybe we could actually collect those and make our own ice core out of your images that'd be kind of neat. julia dooley: And then, if you see the team art science there that's the active link so on your presentation copy because we've made though the Google slides available to you in the chat box. julia dooley: wow some people are doing some really beautiful ones.
julia dooley: very nice. julia dooley: So much better than my scribble here. julia dooley: Here very elaborate shapes. julia dooley: Very good, so sorry team arts sciences, the link to tim's.
julia dooley: Video. julia dooley: He how his process is happens when it snows on his back porch. julia dooley: very creative artists, we have. julia dooley: Who doesn't like to draw and color right. julia dooley: You all are doing such a much better job than I do, I have just a touchpad and it's so hard to hold down the button with my index finger and then try to draw with these fingers. julia dooley: beautifully done.
julia dooley: So actually we did I had my students create some drawings of snow crystals and we use that as decoration at our last PEGI workshop in Cambridge UK at our banquet dinner, so the snow crystals decorated the long people tables there for fancy. julia dooley: fancy meal. julia dooley: Actually I hope it's all right i'm gonna take a screenshot because, unfortunately, with annotate it goes away after we switch. Betsy Wilkening: I saved, it also Julia.
julia dooley: Thank you, I appreciate that. julia dooley: So we could upload that into our folder. Betsy Wilkening: You ready for the next one. julia dooley: I guess, we are.
julia dooley: We have lots to come. Sophie Weeks: Oh, I get snowflakes. Sophie Weeks: Sorry, everybody I don't mind very nice so i'm here really briefly to.
Sophie Weeks: Not that slide the one before, please. Betsy Wilkening: Okay, before we get. back.
Sophie Weeks: And i'm here to just tell you a little bit not tell you about permafrost but tell you about a way of introducing permafrost I. Sophie Weeks: really find that promoting dialogue is a hugely impactful tool in education so rather than giving someone an answer or giving someone, a fact. Sophie Weeks: To put together a kind of presentation that promotes dialogue and. Sophie Weeks: I chose permafrost because it's such such great change in the Arctic and it's great to get people talking about that change and, although this may look like something you would do with children in my experience, things you do with children actually worked quite well with adults. Sophie Weeks: Because they talk in a different level, so this applies for this I didn't tell you beforehand or grit factor them most, which you can get from a garden Center soil, water.
Sophie Weeks: You need a plastic box needs and toothpicks of modeling clay, if you want to go down very elaborate route. Sophie Weeks: And even more elaborate routing might need things like nail nail Polish remover acetone or rubbing alcohol surgical spiritual perfume or carbonated water to play with these ideas. Sophie Weeks: and basically The challenge here is to make that throw them for at least two consecutive years, and the background to it is a big question what's going to happen when the permafrost begins to fall when it's already begun to thaw So what is happening and permission permafrost doors. Sophie Weeks: And to think a little bit about Arctic amplification and if you're working with an audience that's non scientific you might want to just introduce a few terms that they can they can play with and take away so next slide. Sophie Weeks: And this one, I give you a quick a recipe for permafrost so basically equal volumes of of garden soil, I can a mosque grit and find gravel and four times that volume of water.
Sophie Weeks: And mix it all up into you can't see i'm holding up a big bowl of guns, or you can really sort of see and i'm not going to tip it up because it's full of. Sophie Weeks: permafrost mix and all you need to do is mix it thoroughly and freeze it ideally for two years, so at this point, you can introduce the idea that permafrost is ground frozen. Sophie Weeks: For at least two years, and once you've done that, yes, you put it in your freezer next your ice cream and lollipops and you, you can dig it out when you need to next slide. Sophie Weeks: So the idea with the activity and the methodology, you could play the video while i'm talking that's fine. Sophie Weeks: With this methodology is it is essentially that you talk, while you're doing something so the process of mixing permafrost ingredients is obviously kind of mad, but in fact in in mixing those things together and getting physical conversations begin. Sophie Weeks: So I suggested a few things you could do you could try and track once you made your permafrost.
Sophie Weeks: You can try and track nail Polish remover or surgical spiritual perfume underneath your permafrost layer you can also hide something that was me hiding a little animal. Sophie Weeks: In the permafrost and then topping it up and put it in the freezer you can also create model how's it like this one. Sophie Weeks: And you can do an experiment in this, I will hold up and get on the computer like this here's one here's to I made earlier don't hold them in front of me. Sophie Weeks: This one, the House is still standing up on my permafrost this one, the permafrost has melted and i'm hoping, you can see. Sophie Weeks: That the little house on stilts just have to have houses are sort of built in on the permafrost is falling over. Sophie Weeks: So the idea is to create a model of permafrost that will stimulate conversation and questions and some of the questions that kind of came up when I did this with Anna Maria terrifying was.
Sophie Weeks: We talked about imagining what it's like to live live on permafrost and you might have caught me eating and I slowly. Sophie Weeks: Halfway through that because I think if you've got something in your hand it's cold if you're somewhere that's not cold and it can help with we're thinking about things, and what what my freezer underneath your feet be useful for was it was a question actually that the group of. Sophie Weeks: Think it's 12 year olds came up with. Sophie Weeks: So instead of thinking as part of permafrost as a negative cold use less thing to shift the conversation to it being a useful and positive.
Sophie Weeks: thing, because then of course the next stage of the conversation is. Sophie Weeks: Well, what happens if it goes, then, if you're using the permafrost and because you're living on it for certain purposes and that goes and then what kind of monsters hide in ice and. Sophie Weeks: That was a wonderful thing that came up in the conversation, and it may well open up the possibility to talk about microbes and gases and things that are embedded embedded in the ice and what happens if those are released I think that's. Sophie Weeks: My permafrost activity i'm looking forward to making permafrost later Oh, and essentially the last slide is really the big question mark is the uncertainty. Sophie Weeks: So it may be, as a topic of conversation uncertainty comes up and I hope you can see that you can discuss these things on any level that you're at within your student cohorts or as adults or practicing researchers or primary school children. Louise Huffman: Okay, so.
Louise Huffman: i've always huffman I am a former educator while i'm still an educator but i'm a former classroom teacher. Louise Huffman: And currently the director of education and outreach for the US is drilling programs, so I work with ice core scientists working in both Greenland and Antarctica. Louise Huffman: This is an activity that I call land ice ice or when I smell tell will affect sea level and it's in the the old PR be book polar resource book that we are. Louise Huffman: going to talk more about later because we're doing an updated version, working with I asked and scar and apex and we're looking forward to being able to bring that one out and we'll talk to you more about that later, but this one is in Chapter one on pages 47 and 48. Louise Huffman: it's very simple to set up I use it with almost any audience to engage them at the beginning of a presentation, whether it's classroom teachers or a Community audience or. Louise Huffman: classroom children, and these are little plastic sandwich containers and usually I put gravel on one side, but I travel a lot doing presentations so i've gone to this.
Louise Huffman: wet foam which is used by florists and it'll soak up water don't get dry phone because it floats but wet foam. Louise Huffman: Will soak into the water and sit on the on the bottom so half of my container is land and half is ocean, so I feel the other half with ocean. Louise Huffman: And then on the right you'll see the model that they're going to set up so land based dice all the ISIS sitting up on top floating ICES in the water, so want you to remember that and. Louise Huffman: When I think about for a second what is land based dice so kind of be thinking of some examples that come to mind with land based dice and also think about floating eyes what are some examples of ice that floats and then we'll go to the next slide. Louise Huffman: And what i'd like for you to do is go to your view options and pick your annotate tool again. Louise Huffman: and pick text for the first thing we're going to do, and with your text tool i'd like you all you do is you click on text, and you can go down.
Louise Huffman: Any place under land based dice and type in whatever examples you can think of for land based eyes and do the same thing for floating eyes and just kind of type it in the White Paper. Louise Huffman: Under those titles go ahead and do some. Louise Huffman: Okay i'm seeing glaciers see what else you can think of permafrost. Louise Huffman: snow. Louise Huffman: Try to click on I can't quite see it because we're getting on top of each other, try to click someplace away from other people or drag your text box.
Louise Huffman: we've got floating eyes we've got some icebergs we have sea ice. Louise Huffman: ground is over, on land based dice. Louise Huffman: frozen lakes, with a question mark that's a good that's a good thought we have to think about that is that land is or is it we'll talk about that in a minute.
Louise Huffman: Okay, so um. Louise Huffman: I would think you know some other ones we might want to think of besides glazers which are just other names, but we might want to think of ice caps. Louise Huffman: That would be in Greenland Antarctica some of the big ice that we have and then we've got I shelves with your.
Louise Huffman: eyes that's slid off of the continent, still connected to the continent but it's floating great okay so we're going to clear these off and now i'd like you to pick your stamp tool, whichever one you want harder star whatever and now I want you to make a prediction. Louise Huffman: If we let our model melt will land based dice we're going to ask the question how's that going to affect sea level Will it raise it lower it or stay the same so take your stamp tool and stamp and the box that would say your prediction for flooding is and for land based dice. Louise Huffman: Okay, great now what I would be doing, while you're finishing that up, I would say, have them. Louise Huffman: The best way to do it, I think, is when you have enough materials that. Louise Huffman: Everybody in a small group can make one of these models and then share them later we're going to set them aside and let them melt now, while I go on and do my presentation, for whatever group i'm talking to. Louise Huffman: Or if i'm doing a classroom group would go on and do some other activity, because watching it melt is about as much fun as watching paint dry so we're going to go ahead and leave our prediction chart now and go to the next slide.
Louise Huffman: And you know Betsy don't clear it just leave it. Louise Huffman: For now, because we're going to go back into second So if you look at the melted models now where this would be at the end of my presentation I look go say let's go back and look at our melted models. Louise Huffman: For land based dice people if you set up that did it raise it lower to stay the same, so they would tell us and you talk about that a little bit, you can see, in my my example that where the line is that I marked. Louise Huffman: And you mark the line, after you put the ice in, and then I let it melt and you can see that the water. Louise Huffman: rose up to the red line and then in the floating is, if you look where the line is it stayed the same when it melted so now go back to that other slide Betsy. Louise Huffman: Now you guys are a pretty amazing audience because that's exactly what you predicted and you are the first audience in the history of me doing this, they pretty much had at all the same, and.
Louise Huffman: Yes, we saw that the land based eyes did raise it the flooding is just stay the same, but I can almost guarantee you that in almost any regular classroom or Community audience that's not a group of polar scientist and educators that they're going to be all over this. Louise Huffman: This prediction map and it's good for them to be thinking ahead to a prediction and I like that they're predicting without their name on it, because they're doing it without any concern of being right or wrong. Louise Huffman: And we talked about that in science it's not right or wrong if you didn't predict correctly you've still learned something you've learned what it isn't so that's it's a great activity for. Louise Huffman: bringing up some good science concepts The other thing is that now we can go and talk about real world examples, so if we have glaciers on. Louise Huffman: Greenland Antarctica melting into the ocean, those are land based ice they're going to raise sea level.
Louise Huffman: floating eyes, we keep hearing that the Arctic Ocean is melting at an unprecedented rate and that multi year a CIS is getting smaller and smaller so is that raising sea level well no not not. Louise Huffman: appreciably but the big thing is another idea is the whole idea of the oceans warming up and as the oceans are warming, you have thermal expansion, so you can get into all kinds of other kinds of discussions with this very simple model. Louise Huffman: And I believe that is that Thank you. Louise Huffman: wow we're getting set up for this next one, I want to say one more thing if you're doing it for a big group and you don't want everybody to have.
Louise Huffman: Their own hands on it, you can do it in bigger containers like a fish tank or a big plastic tub of some sort and set it up with gravel and water that they can watch. Maria Pia Casarini: Okay, and then it looks like. Maria Pia Casarini: We can get down to something practical. Maria Pia Casarini: Practical like each.
Maria Pia Casarini: Because, as you know, people in the Arctic eat, like everybody else, what I like about these two recipes that are going to share with you is that they are really historically very, very important the banner was introduced actually by Scotland because mainly Scottish people. Maria Pia Casarini: were part of the hudson's Bay company which were first traders that got a charter in as far back as 1670 for all machines Charles the second. Maria Pia Casarini: And they first came into Indian territory where they hunted basically to extinction the animals, then they moved up North and they got into in which country.
Maria Pia Casarini: And then the new age who were just used to hunting for themselves started hunting animals to give first to the hudson's Bay company people. Maria Pia Casarini: And, of course, if they hunted they couldn't maintain give food to the families and they stopped to be native be nomadic and started going towards the. Maria Pia Casarini: Fourth, to buy of the hudson's Bay company people were so what happened was that they started getting flour butter all the Western terms of. Maria Pia Casarini: A Western diet and so they started using it to make food, and now we think of banner as typically a staple diet of the Inuits which in fact is completely wrong. Maria Pia Casarini: But anyway, this is the recipe that you can see, and if you want to make a screenshot then tomorrow, you can try to have your Sunday.
Maria Pia Casarini: breakfast or whatever with any type of flower baking powder was butter lard bit of salt, and this is the absolute basic one and we can have the next slide please. Maria Pia Casarini: So we can see very quickly, how you do you just it's very simple you mix flower baking powder and salt in a large bowl, then you pour melted butter and water and next. Maria Pia Casarini: And then you just stir with a fork and you make it a very fluffy mixture just turn it around about 10 times and then you can have a big banner or smaller banner. Maria Pia Casarini: Small shapes and and then basically just fry them in a pan with a bit of the next slide please okay see them here mean code.
Maria Pia Casarini: And it can be done in whatever habitation are you are in Indian country or you know it country a 15 minutes on each side, you can see here and a teaser do we need to actually own some campfire here and using some task to mail and and then make banner did excellent, please. get a. Maria Pia Casarini: lexicon ahead, the next slide.
Maria Pia Casarini: Thank you, this is actually a very artistic photograph this. Maria Pia Casarini: photographer and go back one second please thanks acacia Johnson will also be shown in another initiative that will have throughout the year. Maria Pia Casarini: Anyway, she's American from Alaska but she spent a year with the interest on baffin island, and this is an elderly lady cooking banner in her own House. Maria Pia Casarini: The next and then other items that we can talk about is penny penny can is the other way around, because it was invented actually by the. Maria Pia Casarini: tree is the tribe, of the three Indians or America and worker panicking panicking was a word for fat or Greece, and these are very good survival food and for long journeys and it was adopted, I in fact by the European explorers and such as Nancy.
julia dooley: monson the long. Maria Pia Casarini: All the other and also it very useful to have some high calorie meals, in fact, you who are very supportive people can make your own and take it on hikes and excursion very simple again a dried me, I mean, of course, they say elk caribou etc we don't actually find that in our support. Maria Pia Casarini: And Captain Scott, for instance on the journey on the South Pole, then you mix it with amber ISM blueberries a mash them up with a mortar and pestle and then. Maria Pia Casarini: Put the mix them together will play next.
Maria Pia Casarini: there's some fast, which could be from fat or the some of these vegetarian, you can have a mixture of peanut butter and me and for the mixer, then you absorb it all. Maria Pia Casarini: And out salt and pepper is you desire and then that just make it into a small shape using some of class and and then. Maria Pia Casarini: Keep it in for wrap it up in foil. Maria Pia Casarini: And I put it in a syllable plastic bag.
Maria Pia Casarini: Excellent storage and. Maria Pia Casarini: Okay, and Joanna that's from Alaska tells us that commercial substitutes our pilot bread and spam, but this is kind of more historically it's a lot of to think about having making your own time he can then you feel like we have our own type explorer. Maria Pia Casarini: I think that.
Maria Pia Casarini: Okay, thank you. Betsy Wilkening: Alright, so what we wanted to do next, is what we call a waterfall and. Betsy Wilkening: ask you to type in the chat but just wait to enter until we tell you to hit enter and then we'll all enter. Betsy Wilkening: At the same time, if you have a best polar ice breaker that you use or something that you want to share with us go ahead and type it into the chat now and give you a minute or so.
Betsy Wilkening: If you want to leave your contact information, you can do that to the email. Betsy Wilkening: yeah I was saying in the chat that the the banach is similar to tortillas and that's traditional food for my family. Betsy Wilkening: flour and content.
Betsy Wilkening: And then, a lot of the indigenous tribes around us they'll make. Betsy Wilkening: fried bread that's semi. Betsy Wilkening: The Navajo hybrid is really make Navajo tacos and. Betsy Wilkening: I think a lot of. Betsy Wilkening: People can relate to the banner Christmas. Betsy Wilkening: Everybody getting close.
Betsy Wilkening: let's go ahead and hit enter. Betsy Wilkening: yay. Betsy Wilkening: HQ in the fastest way to melt it. Betsy Wilkening: that's specially Nice and hot weather it'll go really quick how Louise and years, and my environment.
Betsy Wilkening: So the stick of polar animal picture on your forehead and then going around asking to see what kind of animal they have. Betsy Wilkening: it's good. Betsy Wilkening: storytelling storytelling is very good.
Betsy Wilkening: Picking berries going fishing or something along that line are to go along with it. Betsy Wilkening: yeah there's that john I don't know if you've worked with them out of university Alaska fair banks that have done storytelling and Community science across many indigenous communities up in Alaska. Hubbard_Joanna: they're really marvelous project yes. Betsy Wilkening: yeah yeah i've worked with them some to their great. Betsy Wilkening: poring over snowflake conventions.
Betsy Wilkening: All right, i'll be come up with other ideas and you want to share them go ahead and put them in the chat as we go along i'm going to move on. Betsy Wilkening: So the polar resource book as we mentioned a lot of these activities, come from the polar resource book. Betsy Wilkening: And we are in the process of updating the book right now, but we would like to invite you, on Thursday, we are giving a session at as s w to give you an update on where this new polar resource book project is going and I can't remember the time off the top of my head, but. Sophie Weeks: Maybe Sophie can you guys see. Sophie Weeks: It yeah. Sophie Weeks: I think is 1800 yeah.
Sophie Weeks: idea at the session is. Maria Pia Casarini: Central European time. Sophie Weeks: lots of other very interesting presentations Raina. Sophie Weeks: In that workshop to. Sophie Weeks: yeah the current cryosphere. Sophie Weeks: Education and outreach struggling Pasty building.
Betsy Wilkening: yeah Chris reiner's presenting an English chairman, and it should be great yeah. Sophie Weeks: yeah so I don't know if people know much about the book, but I most people who are in polar circles know about the powder resource book. Sophie Weeks: What we have done is put the original version online now so far more people can access it and download it.
Sophie Weeks: And what we'd like to introduce it at is how we begin to review and update the scientific content, how we begin to include new educational materials and tools and technologies that have emerged over the last 10 years and how we can include you important scientific content in it. Sophie Weeks: And you find your way yeah. Maria Pia Casarini: What are some somebody pointed out to me some salad essentially 18 hours GM. Maria Pia Casarini: Teach presentation now to Central European time, although it's actually managed by Portugal is still even engine. Maria Pia Casarini: Anyway, now we can share the science with educators and that we set a quite a difficult even time to. Maria Pia Casarini: Just a very short time.
Maria Pia Casarini: How to tell your story of science, that if it's under two minutes. Maria Pia Casarini: We can start at like the audience as well to think about while you're watching what who you are what you do where when do you do it, and why so think of, and then we started opening with our Council member Dr incubator that talks about the third pole in 120 seconds. Maria Pia Casarini: This is the Arctic.
Maria Pia Casarini: This is a mountain those third pole there's no glaciers and Pam or first in the Arctic and there's snow glaciers and permafrost in the mountains. Maria Pia Casarini: There are people living in the Arctic, there are people living in the mountains changes and the cryosphere to to climatic changes are visible in the Arctic, as well as in the mountains. Maria Pia Casarini: And the life of human beings are affected in many ways by these changes in most cases, these effects are similar in the two regions. Maria Pia Casarini: and also for the future similar thread challenges and problems are faced house P, I decided to much more include the third pole in their activities to foster the exchange of knowledge between the two regions, the expertise, the tools and methods and, finally, to benefit from each other. Maria Pia Casarini: I am in a scientist who used to work in the Arctic, but now i'm working in the mountains for outreach and education. Maria Pia Casarini: I see that the mountains are much closer to many people's daily life and that there are even more people affected by changes in the mountains.
Maria Pia Casarini: Not only those directly living there, faster the awareness, for the environment of these people and motivate them to act more sustainable. Maria Pia Casarini: might be easier when talking to them about their environment and not the far Arctic but finally it didn't help us to save our pool as well wouldn't that be cool. Maria Pia Casarini: Yes. Sophie Weeks: reaction is the.
Maria Pia Casarini: reactions that's. julia dooley: Wonderful very. Maria Pia Casarini: Greatly here and now the next one is Professor she's. Maria Pia Casarini: Talking about social science and indigenous knowledge in. Gisele Arruda: Hello everyone. Gisele Arruda: i'm Susan a row damn researchers and sit in circle Boston is and i'm a passionate researcher.
Gisele Arruda: of Arctic social, environmental impacts so communities. Gisele Arruda: In the Arctic even more will depend on integrating traditional ecological knowledge and remote sensing because community to remote sensing and helping to indigenous peoples. Gisele Arruda: Local communities to manage and preserve the resources environmental resources and the air local environment, it also presents mediums for local communities to contribute to their security and well being.
Gisele Arruda: So we use. Gisele Arruda: satellites yeah can we get some help, yes, thank you, we use satellites remote sensing so map important areas in order to create. Gisele Arruda: Secure pass for hunters and local population to perform their on activities because local communities process any memes knowledge of their environments. Gisele Arruda: And practice knowledge, no house cues and when we integrate science and traditional knowledge, we can guarantee, we can ensure that local communities. Gisele Arruda: Have well being and security for their daily activities so it's For this reason, you have the latest important yes, for this reason it's so important to blend science and tradition.
Gisele Arruda: Sharing remote sensing technologies with with remote communities with local communities and their land. Gisele Arruda: it's an important tool to addressing the negative impacts, the transformational impacts of climate change and scale up. Gisele Arruda: Important climate change adaptation, I hope you like this ideas and you will be absolutely surprised to see how the remote says mapping and the storytelling of indigenous populations can match precisely in terms of areas where we have thin and say guys, this is absolutely amazing.
Thank you. Maria Pia Casarini: Thank you very much. Maria Pia Casarini: And now we call the doctor. Maria Pia Casarini: Who has the great. Neelu Singh: Right Hello Hello everyone.
Neelu Singh: So, first, I will talk about myself, who I am. Neelu Singh: As you can see my name is Neil is saying and i'm Vice President of apex execution of polar early career scientist in P Ai. Neelu Singh: And this year I also got is fellowship for marine working group, so I will give you some idea about my research background I did a master's in environmental science.
Neelu Singh: Where I worked on prediction of water quality of Lake due to waste water discharge from India and research base, which is named as matrix so in this map, you can see, go up yeah when I. Neelu Singh: After completing my PhD I move go. Neelu Singh: So here, you can see.
Neelu Singh: Betsy can you go to the next piece yeah there I did my PhD in marine geochemistry for my PhD I studied persistent organic pollutants and as a part of my pst i've been to. Neelu Singh: New lesson five time to collect. Neelu Singh: Software sediment samples.
Neelu Singh: I defended my doctoral thesis in 2019 and after completing my PhD I moved to around 7523 kilometer to solve word so presently i'm in saltburn where I. Neelu Singh: am doing my postdoc. Neelu Singh: At an ocean Norwegian polar Institute. Neelu Singh: yeah next piece. Neelu Singh: Okay, so. Neelu Singh: Oh presently what I am doing and what is my research interest i'm interested in.
Neelu Singh: Micro plastic. Neelu Singh: So if you want to read more about micro plastics status of micro plastic and salt, but I will paste a link in the chat box, there is an article which is recently published in January, so with this picture you can find out what could be the the way of micro plastic it so that it can travel. Neelu Singh: To places like. Neelu Singh: Arctic or Antarctica so with this red big red arrow. Neelu Singh: There is a possibility that it can travel through the air currents and also with the ocean currents.
Neelu Singh: Initially we we were not like we it was not known that macro plastic and also travel to travel through acre and so. Neelu Singh: We believe that it can only affect the marine organisms, not that arrest child but. Neelu Singh: Not that restaurant, but now, with this finding a, we know that there is a possibility that they can also affect the terrestrial food chain. Neelu Singh: next thing is what could be the local no longer is sources of micro plastics so long range could long range and the local source can be the same only the differences, they travel from the. Neelu Singh: Far places so, for example, you can see, with the local community like from local activities it can enter to the to the ocean.
Neelu Singh: That tourism activity activity like. Neelu Singh: This cruise activities they can enter in the in any enrollment for like here i'm talking about Arctic. Neelu Singh: Small sources like snowmobile and cut from car tires also they can enter in the in the ecosystem.
Neelu Singh: port is. Neelu Singh: yeah and, as I mentioned that they can affect the Marine. Neelu Singh: food chain, along with the terrestrial food chain with the White arrows you can see, so in ocean in lakes, or on the transcript, which is so there is no place which is which you can say that it's now out of the vicinity for for for micro plastics, so it can be anywhere. Neelu Singh: i'm sorry if I took 60 seconds.
Maria Pia Casarini: Right all right. Maria Pia Casarini: I think they do, thank you, Neil that was wonderful thanks very much and now the last of. Maria Pia Casarini: Repair the presentations is by Lewis Hoffman and Louise doesn't need any presentations because she's just a great scientist and a great communicator and she'll be talking about us is really in 60 seconds or more, we don't lie. Louise Huffman: I got it. Louise Huffman: I got a date. Louise Huffman: So where i'm going to show a little video and i'll just tell you how I did it go ahead and start it.
Louise Huffman: Now this is ice core science and 80 seconds. Louise Huffman: snow falls. Louise Huffman: And lands. Louise Huffman: On the surface. Louise Huffman: After many different years of snow falling layers began to build up, year after year.
Louise Huffman: And as you go down in the layers you get a lot of pressure building up. Louise Huffman: and snow changes to firm and then you keep going down, and you have the firm ice transition. Louise Huffman: So the older is this down. lower. Louise Huffman: and Louise Huffman: The ice core scientist what a drill on the surface.
Louise Huffman: And there. Louise Huffman: The core barrel goes down and it cuts ice goes up in that quarter barrel, they pull out. I scores.
Louise Huffman: And that's the pressure and, of course, going back in time it gets older oh that's basically how we do ice core science you catch bubbles of ancient atmosphere and those bubbles advice. Louise Huffman: So this was one that I just tried to do in in just a really quick time and I had never done anything like this before I found myself with an iPhone. Louise Huffman: put it in I movie and to pick the theme cartoon so it turned my hand into a cartoon. Louise Huffman: And sped it up to the fastest time and took up to, I think it was two minutes and 50 seconds and put it into 80 seconds so there's one way of doing it, if you want to learn more about ice core science, which is just a. Maria Pia Casarini: taste of it here. Louise Huffman: You can go to ice drill.org or, if you want education activities about ice core science go to ice Jill dash education.org thanks.
Maria Pia Casarini: Very good Thank you so much, that was a great tool that you found very interesting now Sophie can take over from me. Sophie Weeks: I will unmute so I i'm going to try and invite you guys out there who we don't know to share something of your science and maybe we won't be that strict about the 60 seconds, but does anyone what would anyone like to volunteer or, should I do that awful thing that. Maria Pia Casarini: Teachers doing classes and pick on people. Sophie Weeks: alrighty i'm going to pick on someone is a quick way of getting rid of everyone in the meeting um there is a power law. Sophie Weeks: makoni here.
Maria Pia Casarini: Just do. Maria Pia Casarini: Yes. Sophie Weeks: She may have to translate she weren't. Sophie Weeks: There is that. Sophie Weeks: he's good he's good Italian they've only done a few hours of a polar fine.
Sophie Weeks: Okay, what they've learned it's a. Maria Pia Casarini: virus they. Sophie Weeks: Think we're going to have to go for order then. Sophie Weeks: unless someone else has fallen to yeah I. Maria Pia Casarini: Think so that say.
Sophie Weeks: Dora would you share a little bit about your amazing cone of silence in Iceland with us. well. oddursigurdsson: I have been. oddursigurdsson: making an inventory of Iceland delicious, of course, many of the big ice caps are very obvious and have been matt to quite some extent, but there are many, many small glaciers that had not been mapped.
oddursigurdsson: Prior to the. oddursigurdsson: end of the 20th century, so I did take that. oddursigurdsson: into consideration and I went across the country in small Boeing aircraft airplane. oddursigurdsson: And photographed every area that I suspect it hot places and check on it with 3D photography. oddursigurdsson: and see the whether it was moving or not, whether it had crevasses or any other sign of moving like turbid river metadata coming from it, so I was able to make a complete inventory of about 300 patients in Iceland and that had not been done before, so now we have the.
oddursigurdsson: strange situation that since I finished the inventory and yet 20,200 I mean, excuse me. oddursigurdsson: I did this again in 2017 and I realized. oddursigurdsson: That 20 or more than 20. oddursigurdsson: Glaciers that I had mapped in the year 2000 had disappeared already.
oddursigurdsson: Is that clear yes. yeah. Sophie Weeks: Yes, I think that explains why you're doing it this time we will learn more about Iceland glaziers and will you will all learn more about them if you come to our workshop in Hoffman. Sophie Weeks: Next next spring and you'll learn about the Monday or feet by direct experience is that anyone else out there who might try rain, or do you do any science these days or. Sophie Weeks: Ryan, are you are you doing any signs, or do you mainly engaging people in your science. Rainer Lehmann: Hello.
Rainer Lehmann: Hello i'm i'm doing science in. Rainer Lehmann: English. Rainer Lehmann: For a couple of years in. Rainer Lehmann: That river Delta, maybe you know or some of you know, the buffalo river you, Sir going into the lake you know he and there's a lot delta, which is not. Rainer Lehmann: There anymore, because lynch uplift and after negotiation happens and since about 10,000 years the river is cut into his own delta and I did some electrical mapping with it and. Rainer Lehmann: Now i'm looking for some people who like to make was no data to.
Rainer Lehmann: get a quality of the old river the River arms and. Rainer Lehmann: Yes, it's very interesting work now i'm since February i'm working at the University of. Berkeley. Rainer Lehmann: So I have more. Anastasia Deyko: Positive rock. Rainer Lehmann: To do some science on this, but during my work as a school teacher, it was just very random works, so I hope it's going better now.
Sophie Weeks: And just stick yeah that was very succinct. Sophie Weeks: You did very, very well with your timing it's also fascinating people's research I wish there were loads more researchers at our meeting, who could share what they're doing, because every time we hear something. Sophie Weeks: from somebody is so fascinating and stimulating that we all want to shout about it in our classrooms and museums and. Sophie Weeks: Universities wherever we teach them. Sophie Weeks: I think that's it no one else seems to be raising their hand, I see a few people lurking oh Vito Vitaly yes please would you like. Sophie Weeks: To show us if.
Sophie Weeks: You need to unmute. Oh sorry. Sophie Weeks: We can't hear you we can't hear victor.
Sophie Weeks: Help he's from Italy PA that's great. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: Okay yeah. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: Maybe. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: Work for me, Maria piano can be a challenge but OK Vitaly I work for the national research council engaging polar sciences foods. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: At 519 85 million Antarctica then in the Arctic, what I do i'm a scientist and my interest about delegation and energy budget and the influence of prosthetic composition changes on this. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: Budget and process them are in there, either by this process on the surface, many.
vito vitale, CNR, Italy: I work I say in Antarctica and Arctic, we have a station in the Arctic, we work at the station in New York. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: I was the promoter the API or the comma changed our project 2009 and and we have instrumentation in our session Antarctica to. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: Egg why I can make this job, of course, as a physicist energy is the key inputs for any physical system so to do so, the and Okay, but was sometimes it was so successful ality. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: Solid solid the geophysics to food geophysics just for quality during my university study but i'm very happy to to to to make this job and try to understand interaction between atmosphere. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: rcn cryosphere and biosphere is this my interest to promote interaction and.
that's it. Sophie Weeks: That was amazing you just managed to bring in the atmosphere, the Marine cryosphere you just put everything into your research that can be anything. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: You know, then the coupling of this domain says fundamental for for good projection of climate change, so. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: it's an I think is a nice what's your name. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: And the science is climate system is is a complex system and you need to analyze you know basic way, if you like, to better understanding and for to see correctly. Sophie Weeks: Absolutely, we I think as as educators in different environments, we agree that there's too little systems thinking there's too little thinking about the system as a whole.
Sophie Weeks: So this is something we're very interested in weaving into to education systems thinking and how things are interconnected people and environment as well fantastic, and do you go to the Concordia station on Antarctica. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: yeah I was, I was thinking nine times in Antarctica couple of times in Concordia and we have a. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: The station connected with the network for irrigation I created additional measurement is the best one Sir faisal additional networking other colleagues from my group routine any move every year in concord, but I also engage in the management of of the polar. vito vitale, CNR, Italy: Activity activity, so in in some way i'm always connected with what happened in Antarctica. Sophie Weeks: Well, I should, I should say, for any who don't know that I think Concordia is the most remote Research Station on Antarctica and it's very brave of you to go. Sophie Weeks: This far away to this remote location to do your your research, you certainly are in a very extreme location yeah fantastic Thank you so much for volunteering and being brave and thank you for speaking in English, which is fantastic, thank you, we very much appreciate it.
Sophie Weeks: Is there anyone else lurking in our gallery of people who'd like to share. Sophie Weeks: I think that's I think that's it, I just want to report, one thing, which is an. Sophie Weeks: smell based thing that you can't smell but i've had my permafrost defrosting here and i've just melt the surgical spirit that I embedded underneath one of my layers of permafrost so I couldn't smell it when it was frozen, but now.
Sophie Weeks: The. Sophie Weeks: The gases are being released from. Sophie Weeks: underneath the permafrost anyway that's it for me next slide please. Maria Pia Casarini: Okay.
Maria Pia Casarini: Okay that's one of the next activities that will talk about this later on and for sure I really need. Maria Pia Casarini: Not just the people who are present here in this room, but please get. Maria Pia Casarini: All of your other networks interested. Maria Pia Casarini: Because we as polarity are attempting, something which is actually quite brave, which is to have a 24. Maria Pia Casarini: Hours equinox Easter a share a thon to share science at a later on in the program and we want to do it 24 hours, one for each married. Maria Pia Casarini: So it because we want to engage people in Australia in Japan up all over the world, but, of course, you know we need help from.
Maria Pia Casarini: The vast network of researchers and educators and scientists that each of you knows so we'll have really get together, because otherwise we won't be able to do it. Maria Pia Casarini: And we try to make an initial plan and I responsible, together with Betsy and she fell for it, but I hope any more people will join me in sharing the organization of this quite remarkable at. Maria Pia Casarini: To bring the polar educators and the polar research and education to the wide world and in each hour, we plan to have a world expert to do a kind of tech talk tie. Maria Pia Casarini: The discussion and I want to support a subject then mix get a polar musical interlude have something which is related with polar. Maria Pia Casarini: We could have a chat chat the chicken a nice, which are these interesting talks, where you were each slide the last 20 seconds, you had 20 fights. Maria Pia Casarini: And then we can have snapped talks short films of productivity, for each hour, and of course we'll have to share the comparing of it, because nobody can manage 24 hours and.
Maria Pia Casarini: If you know somebody and you want to get together and help is please write us an email and difficult equinox and then we know who to come to to build this, I think it will be a really exciting program but they every, so we need a big group to do it, thank you. julia dooley: Just based on the interesting things that we've heard now that would be i'm looking forward to that event. Maria Pia Casarini: Well, we need valuable people, yes, at least 24. Sophie Weeks: Welcome banisters here and frank just saying. Sophie Weeks: What i'm forgetting into the meeting.
Sophie Weeks: So it's over to. Sophie Weeks: Julia I think now okay so. julia dooley: Okay sorry i'm trying to read a small screen and i've got my other screen open. julia dooley: You sophie's been practicing how to pronounce this terminology actually Cobra until October are on so this term, that we have. julia dooley: Would either of you care to unmute yourselves and tell us how to pronounce this word the right way, instead of me trying it.
oddursigurdsson: there's a missing ella in the promotion. oddursigurdsson: Ah, L eight Th. oddursigurdsson: allows both. oddursigurdsson: That said, if you and you put the accent very firmly on the first syllable floodwaters. julia dooley: flowerpots alright so i'll call on you, and again in just a minute so don't unmute yet.
julia dooley: So this term that. julia dooley: I think it's very apropos so a loaded table or a Buffet so i'm imagining the thanksgiving dinner, I did not have this past year and a table full of food and a little something for everyone so leading us up to our Conference time in Iceland for next year, we put together. julia dooley: yeah a list of all kinds of events, a loaded table with a little something for everybody, I hope everybody will participate in all of the events, but you could pick and choose which things you like. julia dooley: I guess, if you like, more you can always come back for seconds, in a way, and engage other people and move that forward. julia dooley: So we're going to be going online with all of our events leading up to our Hoffman Iceland with these will be free.
julia dooley: We will be posting. julia dooley: The signup actually on event bright, but right now we haven't set up the links for that just yet, but we will be connecting with us on our website and post will post the signups there. julia dooley: that's going to be running for the next few months, so throughout the summer season well spring a little bit of fall summer season.
julia dooley: So our first event is going to be in April and next night yet we'll need that. julia dooley: So this is going to be our lesson and Icelandic so collbran in October will be leading us on pronunciation guidelines i'm anxious to learn more about that. julia dooley: we're going to think about where we're going to be introduction to manners and customs and the Icelandic people so when we come. julia dooley: Maybe trying to keep in mind where we're going and the local customs and ways of greeting people that's always a great even just being able to say hello in someone's language open stores I think my opinion. julia dooley: So pronunciation guide and then a glimpse of Iceland geography and geology of the area of course big news with the eruption that's just happened and is this a link that we're going to play yeah okay so let's take a look.
Maria Pia Casarini: underneath the AFP got your call glazier the eruption at the IFC a political glossier the volcano wanted need that as a look at that place yet, according to reports, the three eruptions of your thought you could learn on record have eruption. julia dooley: Under the if the APP lyrical Garcia. iceland's a yacht Lee you could glue volcano brought back into life just weeks after interrupted for the first time in nearly 200.
julia dooley: Thank you. julia dooley: Yes, I will hope not to sound like those people mispronouncing. julia dooley: terms but i'm sure it will happen, so I apologize in advance. julia dooley: But hopefully we can have a little bit better luck, perhaps with your guidance coburn and Ecuador, so that will be Sunday the 11th of April at 1600 utc. julia dooley: I know it's going to be a little odd getting times correct, so we do use the guide utc time as a standard, so no matter where you are and what time, the time is.
julia dooley: In your local region that will be the time, knowing that we are not going to be able to accommodate everyone in the world and their schedules, of course, we will be making these events available. julia dooley: After the fact online, so you can participate, that way as well. julia dooley: Okay, then our next event coming up, I believe, next slide is that in May. julia dooley: So that will be our polar fun run, yes, so the 17th through the 31st of may it's not one date, in particular, but thinking about getting us from our previous location from our workshop conference that we had in Cambridge
