#AntarcticLog: Beyond the “Wall”

Posted by Shane Hanlon

#AntarcticLog is a series of comics by Karen Romano Young. You can find the originals here.

Yes, I’m shocked each time I see a scientist take time to get interviewed by someone debunking a false claim about climate change, Antarctica, space, you name it.  
Besides debunking the debunking, my contribution this week is a look back at just a few #AntarcticLog comics that focus on the work of scientists who worked in Antarctic’s interior.  
Jessica Badgeley of the University of Washington investigated Blood Falls, itself the subject of some tall tales. 
Sophie Nowicki of the University of Buffalo worked on the modeling of the Antarctic Ice Sheet. 
And NASA/JPL/s Ariel Waldman, reported from the Dry Valleys in this comic triptych.
