NDSU professors' Antarctica research to be featured on KFGO radio

Allan Ashworth and Adam Lewis of NDSU’s Department of Geosciences are scheduled to appear on “Weekend Edition” on KFGO radio 790 AM on Saturday, Feb. 14, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Ashworth, Lewis and student Spencer Salmon recently conducted fieldwork in Antarctica.

An international team of scientists headed up by Ashworth, Lewis and David Marchant, an earth scientist at Boston University, combined evidence from glacial geology, paleoecology, dating of volcanic ashes and computer modeling, to report a major climate change centered on 14 million years ago. A unique fossil discovery made by the researchers generated worldwide media interest in many venues including The Discovery Channel, CNN, National Geographic and the BBC. The research team also is featured in the documentary “Ice People” which will be shown at the Fargo Film Festival on Tuesday, March 3.

“Weekend Edition” on 790 AM radio on Saturdays with host Kelly Stone features research activities from around the region. Streaming audio of the program will be available on Feb. 14 at www.kfgo.com by clicking on Listen Live.

Past programs also have featured research and topics by NDSU professors Dinesh Katti and Kalpana Katti in the Department of Civil Engineering; Heather Gill-Robinson in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Emergency Management; Debra Pankow, NDSU Extension family economics specialist; and Phil Boudjouk, NDSU vice president for research, creative activities and technology transfer.
