Presented by UAA Geologist, Dr. Eric Klein
Alaska is a place like no other. For many people, a trip to Alaska is a life-long dream. For the people who live here, they depend on and protect an enduring way of life. But there are places in our state so remote, so wild, that few Alaskans have ever gone. Here in the planetarium, we're going to take you to these places, to remote wilderness to see iconic animals and landscapes that define the Last Frontier, places that make Alaska...Alaska.
Dr. Klein is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences where he teaches courses in hydrogeology, paleoclimatology, and geochemistry. His current research incorporates both modern and paleo techniques to understand how water moves through Earth systems and how these patterns change with time.
