Antarctic Lecture: Krista Myers
March 22, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Collecting climate data in Antarctica while addressing its carbon footprint
Krista Myers, Lead Technician, Louisiana State University
Krista will talk about her 2021/22 research expedition to the McMurdo Dry Valleys where she spent 4 months maintaining a network of long-term climate and hydrological monitoring stations. She will discuss data collection in some of the most remote landscapes on Earth and COVID-19 impacts on fieldwork in Antarctica. In 2021, Krista spearheaded the MCM LTER’s first ever carbon neutral travel to Antarctica, and has worked collectively to reduce emissions and waste generated in the field. This talk will be an inspiring mix of science and storytelling with respect to climate change.
