Sud’s and Science Tour at Byrd Polar

Suds and Science events are where a host research group of Sigma Xi members present their research and guide a tour of their facilities. The tour group and host laboratory then adjourn to a campus pub for further discussions. These events provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about key research groups on campus and establish interdisciplinary collaborations.

The next Suds and Science will be at the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (BPCRC) at The Ohio State University. It is recognized internationally as a leader in polar, alpine, and climate research. Research programs are conducted throughout the world. The Center is named in honor of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, America’s most famous polar explorer. There are ten research groups at BPCRC, along with a Library, Archival Program, the Polar Rock Repository, and a team of support staff. Research at the Center focuses on the role of cold regions in the Earth’s overall climate system, and encompasses geological sciences, geochemistry, glaciology, paleoclimatology, meteorology, remote sensing, ocean dynamics, and the history of polar exploration.
