Life in the Polar Ocean

Saturday, July 20, 2013 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Life under polar ice thrives in surprising abundance. Sponges, sea stars, tube worms and anemones dot the sea floor around Antarctica while ice fish carve out caves to hid from predatory seals. Overhead during the summer, a light show flashes sunset colors and illuminates natural ice sculptures. At this presentation, see images from the seafloor near the U.S. Antarctic station at McMurdo, learn what it's like to dive into a dark nearly frozen realm and hear how art is informed by science. This family-friendly event is part of OSU's da Vinci Days activities.
