Bard Climate Scientist on Mount Everest National Geographic Expedition

Dr. Anton Seimon teaches climate science in our Masters in Climate Science and Policy program at Bard College. Seimon has ongoing research projects in Africa, Peru and the midwestern U.S. (where he chases tornadoes). But he could not resist a chance to work with his partner Tracie Seimon, studying the impacts of climate change on the flora of Mt. Everest, as part of a recent National Geographic expedition. You can hear from Anton and Tracie about their Everest science beginning at minute 10:28 here, through minute 22:00.

The film identifies Anton through a research affiliation he has at Appalachian State, but we are proud to claim him as a core faculty member for our Climate Science and Policy program at Bard.
