Photographing Science: Artist Talk with Chris Linder
Chris Linder is a photographer, oceanographer, and conservation activist. Linder and his colleagues documented four major expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica, and connected researchers with the public through daily online photo essays and lectures “from the ice.” The still photography produced by Linder was published in a book entitled Science on Ice in 2011. In his talk, Linder will present this project and reflect on his use of photography to communicate scientific research.
Moderated by Patrick Heimbach, Co-Principal Investigator for the NSF-funded project “Understanding Arctic System Change Through Synthesis of Hydrographic and Sea Ice Observations from the Early 21st Century” and Associate Professor at the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES), the Jackson School of Geosciences, and the Institute for Geophysics, The University of Texas at Austin.
