Community Lecture: Detecting the Lit Fuse of the Arctic Carbon Bomb

A community lecture entitled,”Detecting the Lit Fuse of the Arctic Carbon Bomb,” featured WHRC Associate Scientist Robert Spencer and professional science and conservation photographer, Chris Linder. The presentation examined their research trip to the Siberian Arctic where warming temperatures threaten to release large quantities of ancient carbon contained in permafrost and its subsequent effects on climate change.

The two provided a brief overview of the research and showed photographs of the team in action in this fantastic landscape. For more information, see the press release.
