In celebration of Earth Day, please join us in a virtual conversation with Dr. Claudia Schröder-Adams who will speak about her documentary “Arctic Greenhouse”, and answer your questions.  The film is available to view below.

Arctic Greenhouse follows Dr. Claudia Schröder-Adams and her team, as they study the rock and fossil records of Axel Heiberg and Ellesmere Islands in the Canadian High Arctic, investigating how ancient Arctic environments and ecosystems responded to past climate extremes.  During the Cretaceous Period (145.5 to 65.5 Million years ago), the planet was at times under extreme greenhouse conditions and without ice caps.  Does the Cretaceous Polar Sea give us a glimpse of a future Arctic Ocean as our earth continues to warm? 

The documentary was supported by the National Science and Engineering Research Council, the Geological Survey of Canada, Conoco Phillips, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the Polar Continental Shelf Project, and Canadian Geological Foundation and was made possible by the generosity of the people of the High Arctic who granted access to their land.  Produced by Claudia Schröder-Adams with videography by Keenan Lindell, soundtrack by Tokyo Speirs, narration by Katrina Adams, Helmut Weissert, and illustrations by Alex Quesnel.
