TedXSJFC – Ear to the Ice

Glenn McClure, who serves on the faculties of both SUNY Geneseo and the Eastman School of Music, will be working on a National Science Foundation Artists & Writers Fellowship through mid-November (2017) with Peter Bromirski and his associates from the University of California San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Bromirski is the principal investigator on the project, which is employing seismic sensors on the Ross Ice Shelf to better understand the Antarctic melting process and the viability of the shelf.

He will use a mathematical conversion process to bring the infragravity sound wave data into the hearing range, generating material for music that he hopes to fill concert halls with the messages buried deep in the ice.

For a full explanation of the science behind the expedition, check out the work of Dr. Peter Bromirski at https://scripps.ucsd.edu/centers/iceshelfvibes/.
