An Accessible Introduction to Quantum Gravity Phenomenology
October 19, 2021 | Goulet Science Center
Abstract: Climate modelers rely on both remote sensing and in situ measurements of the dynamics of and properties of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets in order to predict the impact of climate change on sea-level rise. Remote sensing products managed by NASA and its counterparts world-wide require ground-truth measurements to assure data quality; however, these measurements are difficult to make in Polar regions owing to cost, accessibility of sites, and safety. Dartmouth researchers have been developing robots to support Polar science since 2005. This seminar reviews both the process and outcomes of designing of robots for operation in Polar regions and the contribution of autonomous robots to Polar science.
