Instructor: Mark Van Baalen, Geologist at Harvard University
Recent unexpected developments in the inexorable process of climate change have shown us that the Earth's response to a changing climate is far more complex than previously thought. The emerging field of Earth System Science tries to address all of these factors in a holistic manner, rather than simply as a physical or chemical question. Join geologist Mark Van Baalen in an assessment of what we know about climate, where we are likely headed, and how the Mount Washington Observatory fits into this picture.

Unlock the mysteries of New Hampshire's landscape by investigating the impact that glaciers, both continental and alpine, had on the White Mountain region. Learn about distinct glacial features we can visit today, and discover how the study of glaciers elsewhere on Earth gives us clues about the glaciers that once covered the northern region of New Hampshire.
