Curious: To The End Of The Earth For Science
Imagine taking a swim in the winter. No, scratch that, it's actually summer... but summer in Antarctica. And the water temperature is 28 degrees.
We called it a swim, but it's actually a dive, one that Paul Cziko at the University of Oregon took, to install monitoring equipment UNDER the ice of Antarctica.
In this month's edition of Curious: Research Meets Radio, Dr. Cziko talks about his work with the McMurdo Oceanographic Observatory, what he hopes to detect with the instruments, and what it feels like to dive in water cold enough to freeze.
