Have you ever wanted to go to the Arctic? Dr. Paul Andrew Mayewski, an internationally acclaimed glaciologist, climate scientist, and polar explorer, has led over 60 expeditions throughout the remotest polar and high elevation reaches of our planet and lived in the Arctic for nearly two years.
On Monday, February 13 (6 pm), Dr. Mayewski will share insights from his award-winning research and extensive experiences in the Arctic focusing on the significant impact this apparently isolated part of the globe has on the rest of the world, especially as it is warming two to three times faster than the rest of the planet.
This presentation is free of charge and can be attended in-person or virtually. If attending virtually, please register in advance of the program via the registration link on the Wilson Museum’s calendar of events: https://www.wilsonmuseum.org/events/the-role-of-the-arctic-in-a-warming-world.
The program is part of the Arctic: Changes in a Northern Climate segment of the Wilson Museum’s Connecting to Collections program series made possible through the generous support of Bangor Savings Bank.
