The Good: Season 2, Episode 2 - September 2018

We travel to Iceland with Dickinson College researchers who've earned the title "National Geographic Explorers" while working on a climate change investigation. Under the guidance of Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Kristin Strock, the student-faculty team studied methane emissions in the country’s lakes to better understand the gas’s influence on climate change.

Plus, in this episode we reveal the answer to last month's trivia question that sent you looking for a star athlete with a Carlisle connection. Associate Professor of Mathematics Jeff Forrester has a new brain teaser for bookworms. (Know the answer? Email thegood@dickinson.edu for a chance to win Dickinson swag.) And President Margee Ensign discusses student-faculty research and the college's recent sustainability accolades.
