Event description

Witness the extraordinary life of Dr. Lonnie Thompson ’73 MS, ’76 PhD, a distinguished professor of earth sciences and senior researcher at Ohio State — and an explorer who went where no scientist had gone before. Daring to seek Earth’s history contained in glaciers atop the tallest mountains in the world, Lonnie found himself on the frontlines of climate change. His life’s work evolved into a salvage mission to recover these priceless historical records before they disappear forever.
