In Spring 2016, students at the Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts put together a range of short videos about research and life around the Western Antarctic Peninsula from B roll footage from Rutgers University documentary Antarctica Edge: 70 South.

MasonGross_RichardDoungRichard Doung produced this clip to highlight the science behind how polar oceans are changing as well as all of the different components of the Antarctic ecosystem and how scientists are studying them.


MasonGross_AlyssaLopezAlyssa Lopez produced this clip to highlight what it takes to do science in the Western Antarctic Peninsula with respect to the impacts of climate change in the fastest winter warming place on Earth.


MasonGross_AndreaPfaff Andrea Pfaff produced this clip to highlight the structure and set-up that the US Palmer Research Station and the R/V Laurence M. Gould have to support the range of cutting-edge science that takes place along the Western Antarctic Peninsula.


MasonGross_IsabellaRodriguezIsabella Rodriquez produced this clip to highlight some of the work that the penguin and seabird team does to track the health of the colonies.


MasonGross_LarryFriedLarry Fried produced this clip to highlight how scientists are using automated robots, Gliders, to study changes in the ocean around the Western Antarctic Peninsula to see impacts of climate change.


MasonGross_NiharikaBhaveNiharika Bhave produced this clip to highlight the work that scientist are doing to understand how the Antarctic ecosystem is changing and why the Western Antarctic Peninsula system is a great place to study the impacts of climate change.


MasonGross_student1 This clip was produced to capture interviews with the scientists down at the US Palmer Research Station as they talk about their career choices and processes of getting into science.
