UJ is hosting a screening of “Between Earth and Sky: Climate Change on the Last Frontier.” Afterwords, Producer Dr. David Weindorf will be available to answer questions.
The feature-length, science-based film, is the first of its kind to explore global climate change through the lens of soil science. It presents the impact of global climate change through the perspective of arctic soils and ecosystems of Alaska.
“This film began as a way to document the 33 years of soil science work in Alaska by recently-retired University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) professor Dr. Chien-Lu Ping,” says Dr. Weindorf. “It has evolved into a feature-length film that presents findings from numerous UAF researchers, top scientists and every-day people who simplify the link between climate dynamics and soil science through their personal experiences and knowledge.”
Refreshments will also be available after the screening.
