  • Entry display featured the Electromagnetic 'Bird' used to measure the thickness of the ice using electromagnetic sounding. This technique is usually used on land to map ore or groundwater deposits. Dr. Christian Haas, Professor of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences adapted the technique to create a breaktrhough monitoring device for sea ice, the EM Bird. The UofA is one of only three institutions in the world to have access to this cutting-edge technology.
