Melting ice at the North Pole gets more attention than conditions at the high altitude land mass on the opposite end of the Earth, but climate change is making itself felt there as well, though in some less obvious ways.
There are dramatic differences between the North and South poles, explains Sune Tamm. The North Pole lies at sea level and has no land beneath it, so it is comparatively accessible. By contrast, the South Pole stands high atop a remote but substantial continent.
Sune Tamm and Carl Mears will present “Tales from Antarctica” Saturday afternoon at 4 pm at the Laguna de Santa Rosa Foundation’s new environmental center, at 900 Sanford Road, off Occidental Road. Use these links for event information and advance tickets.
