Title: Searching for Life in the Ice
Description: The Census of Marine Life is a growing global network of researchers in more than 70 nations engaged in a ten year (2000-2010) mission to assess and explain the diversity, distribution, and abundance of marine life in the oceans. Rolf Gradinger is an expert in Sea Ice Communities, studying the tiny animals that actually live inside the ice and those that live on the bottom of the ice sheets. We'll chat with Rolf about his current work, drilling ice cores just off Barrow, and looking for some of the world's most unique fauna.
