Fielding Bradford Meek

Page history last edited by Jennifer Johnson 13 years, 7 months ago

Fielding Bradford Meek was a geologist who got his start as a skilled fossil artist because he was a spectacular portrait painter.   His work received a lot of attention from other scientists.  Meek eventually moved into the Smithsonian to live and carried out his work within the walls of the North Tower.  As a result of his popularity he had a few organisms named after him.

Arctic Ice Sheet Depletion Video. This video is an animation of how far the glaciers reached into the continents 20,000 years ago.  It then shows an animation of how far the glaciers reach as of 1980.  This would be good to use in a unit about global warming.
