Description: My submission is an education video about glacial isostatic adjustment, why we have glacial and interglacial periods, how we can reconstruct climate history, and how the Earth is responding to the retreat of the continental glaciers. I found that this topic brings together a lot of different areas of study relevant to AGU, from geophysics, to orbital mechanics, to geochemistry.
About the AGU Student Video Contest:
For the second year in a row, AGU asked our student members to create videos that: 1) highlight an aspect of Earth and space science in an entertaining way for a non-scientific audience; 2) tell an autobiographical story of an interesting geophysical career path; or 3) perform a song or skit on Earth or space science subjects.
Now it's up to you to choose a winner! Watch all the videos in this playlist and then use the like button to vote for your favorite. The video with the most votes at 11:59 P.M. (EST) on 4 August wins!
The winner gets a free student registration for the 2013 Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California!
