Beneath the Antartic Ice

Pema Kitaeff
March 22, 11 AM, Pemahoodweb_2 Natural History Exhibit

In an illustrated lecture, Pema Kitaeff will share her recent research experiences diving under more than 7 feet of Antarctic ice.  For five weeks in the fall of 2007, she was part of a team conducting research on nudibranch egg masses and exploring the subtidal marine communities of the far north.  Pema’s experiences included encounters with Friendly, a Weddell seal who shared her diving hole, pycnogonids (sea spiders) who became subjects of the team’s experiments, brilliantly colored soft corals, and many other marine organisms.Admission: $5/members; $7/non-member
