Pushing Climate Change Research to the Roof of the World: Expedition Everest

August 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

| Free

UMaine Professor Paul Andrew Mayewski has been to the top of the world — literally. On August 20 he will show and tell us what it’s like.

In 2019, Dr. Mayewski, director of UMaine’s Climate Change Institute, led a team of researchers to Mount Everest to install the world’s highest weather-monitoring stations and extracted the highest ice core ever collected. Funded by National Geographic and Rolex, the expedition was the subject of the 2020 widely-praised documentary series, “Expedition Everest,” and is the subject of a new, special edition of National Geographic magazine.

About Dr. Mayewski:
Dr. Paul Andrew Mayewski is a glaciologist who holds the title of Distinguished Professor in UMaine’s School of Earth and Climate Sciences, School of Marine Sciences, School of Policy and International Affairs, and Maine Business School. He also serves on the faculty of the University of Maine Law School’s Center for Ocean and Coastal Law.
