Program: Cutting Edge Sea Level Research
Tomorrow!! October 7th @ 5:30
Athol Public Library presents
“Current Sea Level Research”
with Lynne Stopen
Thursday October 7th
Athol High School teacher Lynne Stopen will give a slide presentation “Current Sea Level Research.”
Do you know that “albedo” is a measurement of how much energy reflects off a surface, such as ice or the ocean? Have any idea what a pyranometer is? Come to this talk by local science teacher Lynne Stopen, and learn all kinds of interesting things about climate change science.
Ms. Stopen recently studied Polar Research at the University of Massachusetts with the Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics group, (STEM), funded by the National Science Foundation. STEM provides professional development for teachers. Lynne will talk about sea level, how data is collected, and what changes in sea level will mean for the people and animals of northern Alaska.
This event is free and open to the public.
Pre-registration is encouraged.
Presented as part of the Athol Public Library's 'How Green is My Library' LSTA grant. This federally funded LSTA grant is administered by the Mass. Board of Library Commissioners.
