Art and Science Meet at a Pingo...

Murmur: Arctic Realities is an installation by Seattle artist John Grade at Mystic Seaport that recreates one of the fascinating geomorphic features of permafrost regions, namely a pingo. Grade's sculpture derived from one pingo he encountered on his raft trip along the Noatak River.

As part of this exhibit, UAF researchers, including WERC researcher Anna Liljedahl, examine the science of pingos in this documentary:

Liljedahl has been invited to speak about Pingo science at Mystic Seaport on Feburary 24.
