Under the Arctic: Digging into Permafrost

OPENING FEBRUARY 15, 2020 TO SEPTEMBER 7, 2020 AT DYNAMIC EARTH

Your expedition starts at Dynamic Earth! Visitors will enter the world of the Western Hemisphere’s only permafrost research tunnel and take in sights and sounds that are usually hidden underground. Frozen grasses, ancient ice formation and Ice Age fossils will help provide visitors with clues to Earth’s past and future climates. In the Field Lab, they will learn from hands-on experiments, interactive models and exciting game that explore the cause and consequences of climate change for all of us.

This exhibit was developed by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) in collaboration with the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and an Alaska Native advisory group. 

Under the Arctic: Digging into Permafrost was produced and is toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. The exhibit was developed in collaboration with the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and made possible by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant.
