Secret Science Club presents Oceanographer & Antarctic Researcher Joellen Russell

Join us live via Zoom on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 (Eastern Time USA) "Doors" open at 7:30PM 

Shhh... everyone on our mailing list will be emailed the Zoom link the night before.  To join the Secret Science Club mailing list (or just request the Zoom link), send us an email (secretscienceclub@gmail.com)

Growing up in a far-flung Alaskan fishing village, Joellen Russell was fascinated by the dynamics of sea ice. Every summer, the sea ice broke up into floes and drifted away on mysterious currents. Where, she wondered, did they go?

Today, Joellen Russell follows her curiosity to the very ends of the Earth. She heads research on the treacherous and turbulent waters around Antarctica—one of the least known environments on the planet—using floating robots, satellites, and supercomputers.

In recent years, she and her colleagues have begun to uncover the powerful role the Southern Ocean plays in Earth’s climate system. “From no perspective is there any place more important,” she recently told the New York Times. “There’s nothing like it on Planet Earth.”

Join us on Tuesday night as we kick off the New Year at Secret Science Club!
