with Margie Turrin and Laurel Zaima

The polar regions are extremely dynamic with the ice always changing and flowing in response to forces, including climate change. This session focuses on empowering students with accessible and user-friendly remote sensing tools that allow them to explore, observe, and make hypotheses about our ever changing world.
