Join us for a virtual tour of the Byrd Center! This tour will begin at 6: p.m.
Public tours have returned - join the Byrd Center Wednesday evening for a virtual public tour!
Register via Zoom to embark on a virtual tour of the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, followed by a tour of one of several sites visited by our researchers. On the tour, visitors will have the opportunity to explore Scott Hall in a virtual setting, including the Polar Rock Repository, Ice Core Facility, and a sneak peak from inside the Class 100 Clean Laboratory. Then, led by Glacier Environmental Change Research Group member Forrest Schoessow, visitors will be "transported" to Peru to stand atop a tropical glacier - Huascaran. Join researchers as they collect core samples, and enjoy the view of the southern Andes Mountains in this special first-ever tour of the glacier. The summit of Huascarán is the highest point in Peru, the northern part of Andes, and in all of the Earth's Tropics.
