Climate change is
reshaping both the Arctic and Antarctic regions more rapidly than any
other part of the world. Scientists are studying the melting of
glaciers in these areas with a particular concern for sea level rise.

On Tuesday, March 4, at 7:00 pm, Rockland Sierra Club will be
hosting a talk at Nanuet Library given by Margie Turrin, Education
Coordinator at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. She will speak about
and show slides from her experience traveling to Greenland as a
member of a research project focused on climate change, and her
participation in the Antarctica Forum, an interdisciplinary group
that brought together scientists, journalists, business people,
academics, artists and spiritual leaders, with the aim of creating
momentum for change.

The views promise to be spectacular!

Education Coordinator at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of
Columbia University, Margie has worked on projects from the Polar
regions to the Hudson River. She has run both adult and youth
field-based science education programs on and around the Hudson. Her
polar projects have taken her to Alaska, Greenland and Antarctica.

The program is free and
the public is invited to attend.
