  • Dan Britt - Orbits and Ice Ages: The History of Climate

    55:50

    Another lecture in IHMC's award winning lecture series.

    Climate change has become a major political issue, but few understand how climate has changed in the past and the forces that drive climate. Most people don't know that fifty million years ago there were breadfruit trees and crocodiles on the shores of the Arctic Ocean, or that 18,000 years ago there was a mile-thick glacier on Manhattan and a continuous belt of winter sea ice extending south to Cape Hatteras. The History of Climate provides context of our current climate debate and fundamental insight how the climate works.

    Dr. Daniel Britt is a Professor of Astronomy and Planetary Sciences at the Department of Physics, University of Central Florida. He was educated at the University of Washington and Brown University, receiving a Ph.D. from Brown in 1991. He has had a varied career including service in the US Air Force as an ICBM missile launch officer and an economist for Boeing before going into planetary sciences. He has served on the science teams of two NASA missions, Mars Pathfinder and Deep Space 1. He was the project manager for the camera on Mars Pathfinder and has built hardware for all the NASA Mars landers.

    Britt currently does research on the physical properties and mineralogy of asteroids, comets, the Moon, and Mars under several NASA grants. Honors include 5 NASA Achievement Awards, election as a Fellow of the Meteoritical Society, and an asteroid named after him; 4395 Dan Britt. He is currently President of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society. He lives in Orlando with his wife Judith. They have two sons, ages 16 and 21.

  • Tracking the First People into Ice Age North America | Craig Childs

    1:1:33

    Craig Childs chronicles the last millennia of the Ice Age, the violent oscillations and retreat of glaciers, the clues and traces that document the first encounters of early humans, and the animals whose presence governed the humans chances for survival.

    With the cadence of his narrative moving from scientific observation to poetry, he reveals how much has changed since the time of mammoth hunters, and how little. Across unexplored landscapes yet to be peopled, readers will see the Ice Age, and their own age, in a whole new light.

    Craig Childs is a writer, wanderer and contributing editor at High Country News, commentator for NPR's Morning Edition, and teaches writing at University of Alaska and the Mountainview MFA at Southern New Hampshire University. His books include Atlas of a Lost World: Travels in Ice Age America (02019), Apocalyptic Planet (02013) and House of Rain (02008).

    Tracking the First People into Ice Age North America was given on August 4, 02020 as part of Long Now's Seminar series.

    View full lesson:

    Throughout Earth’s history, climate has varied greatly. For hundreds of millions of years, the planet had no polar ice caps. Without this ice, the sea level was 70 meters higher. At the other extreme, about 700 million years ago, Earth became almost entirely covered in ice, during an event known as “Snowball Earth.” What causes these swings in the planet’s climate? Lorraine Lisiecki investigates.

  • HOW COLD WAS THE ICE AGE? Scientist Finally Know the Answer #iceage #climatechange #temperature

    3:24

    How cold was the ice age? Scientist have been trying to figure this out for years. What is an ice age? It is a long period of reduction in the temperature of the Earth's surface and atmosphere. This result in the presence or expansion of continental and polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. Earth's climate alternates between ice ages and greenhouse periods, during which there are no glaciers on the planet. There have been at least five documented major ice ages during the 4.6 billion years since the Earth was formed — and most likely many more before humans came on the scene about 2.3 million years ago. The Last Glacial Maximum, or LGM, was a frigid period when huge glaciers covered about half of North America, Europe, some parts of South America and many parts of Asia.
    A new study published is Nature in August 2020, analyzes fossil data to find the average temperatures during the last Ice Age. A team lead by Jessica Tierney, associate professor at the University Of Arizona Department Of Geosciences has nailed down the temperature of the last ice age. The findings will help climate scientists evaluate how today is rising atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide influence the average temperatures around the world.
    Would we survive the next ice age.

  • Environment change in SEA since Ice Age - Prof Micheal Bird Part 2

    4:55

    During the last ice age (20,000 years ago) it was possible to walk from Singapore to Borneo or Sumatra. Sea level was 120m lower than today, exposing the continent of 'Sundaland' (now island southeast Asia), with an area about the same size as Europe.

    Drier, open savannas covered the area around Kuala Lumpur and Palawan with moist tropical forest area contracting substantially toward the equator. In contrast, 6,000 years ago, sea level in Singapore was about 2.5m higher than now and the island shrunk to half its present size.

    The high-rise buildings of downtown Singapore are built upon the thick deposits of marine mud were laid down at this time. The modern patterns of biodiversity in the region have been shaped by these massive changes in the configuration of land and sea and by the large changes in climate and vegetation that have occurred in the region in the past.

    This talk will provide an introduction to environmental change in island southeast Asia since the last ice age and explain how sea-level and climate change have helped shape the modern biogeography of the region. It will also examine the potential role of environmental change in modulating the trajectory and timing of early human dispersal through 'Sundaland' and on into Australia.

  • How Did Noahs Flood Cause the Ice Age? - Dr. Larry Vardiman

    19:55

    This video segment is from Beyond Is Genesis History? Vol 1 : Rocks & Fossils, the follow-up to our feature-length film where we explore the impact of the global Flood on the Earth. Check it out on our website:

    Up in the frigid heights of Mount Baker, atmospheric scientist Larry Vardiman explains how the global Flood created the unique climate conditions necessary for the rapid formation of massive glaciers across the northern hemisphere, an ice age to occur. He also discusses climate change, the extinction of woolly mammoths after the Flood, and the reliability of ice core dating.

    Dr. Vardiman obtained his BS in Physics from the University of Missouri at Rolla, a BS in Meteorology from St. Louis University, and an MS and PhD in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University. He was Director and Editor of the RATE Project, a study on Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth. For the last 10 years of his research career he conducted numerical simulations of climate and weather during the ice age. He used conventional research models and data supplied by NASA and NOAA to study storms enhanced by warm oceans heated by catastrophic events of the Genesis Flood. Dr. Vardiman retired from the Institute for Creation Research in 2012 after 30 years of research, writing, teaching, and speaking on creation with a particular emphasis on weather and climate before, during, and after the Genesis Flood. Prior to his full-time ministry in creation science he conducted 15 years of field research in cloud physics and weather modification for the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Air Force, and Colorado State University. He continues to conduct limited research, writing, and speaking in the Northwest. He also teaches part-time on campus and online at Shasta Bible College in Redding, CA.

  • ICE AGE

  • Making Things Meaningful in the Ice Age

    1:30:15

    The arts provide a key avenue of insight into ancient human behavior and symbolic evolution. In this lecture we will review some of the evidence and analysis of how our ancestors of the later Ice Age used the material and visual world to create meanings, to develop and solidify social relationships, and to become “effective world settlers.” The scope of what we call “Paleolithic art” will be a focus because it is such a well-preserved collection of material and so many new and exciting ways of studying it have developed over the past years.

    Margaret W. Conkey, Ph.D., is Professor Emerita at the University of California, Berkeley, where she has taught for more than thirty years. She has worked primarily in southwest Europe and currently co-directs the excavations at a unique open air site (Peyre Blanque) dating to 17,000 years ago in the French Pyrénées. She has served as president of the Society for American Archaeology and the Archaeology Division of the Association for Feminist Anthropology section of the American Anthropological Association. Dr. Conkey has been engaged in the interpretation of Paleolithic art for more than 40 years, including her own detailed analyses of the portable art of our Ice Age ancestors. Dr. Conkey is the 2016 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Society for American Archaeology, and will receive the Huxley Medal of the Royal Anthropological Society in 2017. She received her MA and PhD degrees in anthropology from the University of Chicago.

    This program presented in partnership with The Leakey Foundation, and with generous support from Columbia College Chicago.
