Water / Dogs / Detectors At Ut / Aquatic Habitats

Stories for # 419 - (WCNY) Most people assume the water they are drinking is safe and protected by government regulations. However, one community in Central New York is learning that even the most pristine of lakes can fall prey to the effects of climate change and the human footprint. This segment is part of an ongoing public media reporting initiative called peril and promise, telling the human stories and solutions of climate change. - (WLIW) Dogs may be man’s best friends, but how much do we actually know about our beloved pets? Alexandra Horowitz, professor of cognitive science at Barnard College and author of being a dog: following the dog into a world of smell, joins Hari Sreenivasan to discuss how she examines our four legged friends by studying the complexities of their noses. - (WLIW) Muons detectors are elementary particles used by researchers to look inside ancient pyramids. Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin are using these detectors to explore the Mayan pyramids in Belize. Roy Schwitters, Professor of Science at U-T Austin, joins Hari Sreenivasan via google hangout. - (KUEN) Found at high elevations in a variety of aquatic habitats in the rocky mountains, the Boreal Toad population has decreased dramatically over the past two decades. This decline is believed to be caused by climate change and the spread of a fungus that thickens the toad’s skin. In this segment, we join volunteer Citizen Scientists, Utah’s Hogle Zoo and Utah’s division of wildlife resources as they gather data at Bryants Fork, Utah, on the health of the Boreal Toad population.
