Alaska Science Pod

Podcast door UAF Geophysical Institute

Science writer Ned Rozell has accompanied researchers all over Alaska and given firsthand accounts of discoveries, triumphs and pitfalls of field work conducted in the Last Frontier. Through in-depth conversations, Ned gives voice to research stories ranging from volcanoes, earthquakes and auroras to climate change, anthropology, paleontology and wildfires. Any natural phenomena in Alaska and the people who study them are fair game. Ned has spent more than 25 years writing hundreds of science stories for the UAF Geophysical Institute's weekly column, the Alaska Science Forum: https://www.gi.alaska.edu/alaska-science-forum. New episodes drop on the first Tuesday of the month.

Ep. 11: Field Notes: Into the Ghost Forest
At the height of summer in 2021, Ned accompanied University of Alaska Fairbanks ecologist Ben Gaglioti to a ghost forest a glacier had run over in Southeast Alaska. Ned and Ben spent about two weeks near La Perouse Glacier, the one that ran over the trees during a cold period called the Little Ice Age. The story begins with the pair standing on a lonely beach about 100 miles south of Yakutat after a bush pilot dropped them off. (28:10)

Ep. 9: Thirty Years of Permafrost Research with Vladimir Romanovsky, Part 1/2
Vladimir Romanovsky is retiring after 30 years of studying permafrost at UAF's Geophysical Institute. He enters professor emeritus status while seeing changes in Alaska's frozen ground he never anticipated when scientists spoke of a new ice age in the 1970s. Romanovsky talks about why these discoveries of rapidly thawing ground are hard on roads and houses built over permafrost — frozen ground that has survived the heat of two summers — but are fascinating to him as a researcher. Part 1 of 2.

Ep. 7: Calls of killer whales with Hannah Myers
Hannah Myers is a graduate student and a killer whale linguist. She has listened to hundreds of underwater recordings from which she can identify distinct families of whales. Myers and other researchers found that killer whales hang offshore of the Gulf of Alaska even during winter, when salmon are no longer headed for their birth streams.
