Film: Between Earth and Sky

A New Film Coming 2017

Between Earth and Sky

Texas Tech Public Media is proud to present the upcoming nonfiction film, Between Earth and Sky, coming in 2017. Funded by The National Resources Conservation Service, Texas Tech University, Soil Science Society of America, BL Allen Endowment in Pedology, and The University of Alaska-Fairbanks.

Take away the politics, policy, and pundits and travel north to Alaska, home of one of the last frontiers on our planet, untouched by human hands. Soil scientists have discovered a reality: We’re losing millions of acres of interior Alaska’s permafrost. Between Earth and Sky is a film about Alaska, and the arctic soils field tour led by Dr. Chien-Lu Ping. Through the lens of Alaska we can see how climate change is affecting our entire world, and through the soil science tour we can better understand what these changes mean.
