Far From a Cold Case: Solving the Riddles of Ice on Planet Earth
Even an M&M can survive the palm of your hand, but not ice. Yet despite its ephemeral appearance, ice is one of the most powerful actors to shape our world. Where can we see the tracks of glaciers? What is an "ice age," and are we in one now? And where does ice fit into a changing climate? We'll explore these questions with stunning footage and insights from the BBC documentary Earth: The Power of the Planet - Ice.
This high-definition movie will serve as the springboard for a lively discussion about the science behind the beauty and wonder of nature.
Ajay Limaye, a graduate student in the Division of Geological and Planetary Science at Caltech, will introduce the film and guide the post-screening discussion.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
