The third installment in our Future of Ice speaker series featured Jody Deming, Walters Endowed Professor and a faculty member in Oceanography and Astrobiology at UW. Her talk explored how life exists in sea ice, the experience of studying sea ice in the Arctic in the dead of winter, and what studying sea ice can tell us about possibility for life on other planets.

The event was live tweeted and captured in Storify.

This speaker series is part of a larger Future of Ice Initiative designed to build upon over 40 years of polar research and education at UW. Learn more about the Future of Ice Initiative
