Editorial Reviews

Italy is the quintessential travel destination for anyone interested in art, culture, and history. Known as one of the fonts of Western culture, it was the center of the Roman Empire and the place where the Renaissance flowered. Today, it remains a mecca for cultural travelers, uplifting, fascinating, and enchanting all who travel there. Italy contains a stunning panorama of history, architecture, art, and culture, all within settings of astonishing beauty. From its epic history and fabulous art to its luminous landscapes and incalculable jewels of architecture, it would be hard to exaggerate the riches of this extraordinary country. Working with experts from Smithsonian and their renowned cultural travel program, Smithsonian Journeys, The Great Courses created a ñGrand Tourî that explores Rome, Florence, Venice, and other culturally rich locations, such as Pompeii and Perugia; highlights countless masterworks of artistic genius; and examines the impact of Italian history on the rest of the world. YouÍll make extensive visits to many points of interest, led by Professor Kenneth R. Bartlett, who has devoted much of his career to bringing Italian culture and history into classrooms and has led tours of Italy for more than 30 years. If you plan to visit Italy, this course will introduce you to the incomparable gems you canÍt miss while you are there. And if you prefer to explore the world from the comfort of your home, weÍll bring Italy to you. Either way, this new, visually splendid tour of Italy will expand your education in the sources of Western art, culture, and history.

Arctic sea ice has likely reached its minimum extent for the year, at 4.72 million square kilometers (1.82 million square miles) on September 16, 2021, according to scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder. The 2021 minimum is the twelfth lowest in the nearly 43-year satellite record. The last 15 years are the lowest 15 sea ice extents in the satellite record.

Each September, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder informs the public of the annual Arctic sea ice minimum extent, an indicator of how climate change is affecting the Arctic, the fastest-warming region of the globe.

Scientists at Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, the Arizona Geological Survey at the University of Arizona, and the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado Boulder have been awarded almost $2 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop a virtual reality teaching tool called Polar Explorer.

The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) announced this week their participation in the 50x30 Coalition, a group of governments and cryosphere and emissions research institutions endorsing the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 50 percent by 2030. The Coalition’s founding members endorse the scientific consensus that failure to reach this milestone will result in temperature “overshoot,” in which emissions remain too high to hold Earth within 1.5 degrees Celsius of pre-industrial levels, leading to major and irreversible damages to the environment. Damage may be especially harmful for highly temperature-sensitive frozen components of the Earth system, with impacts ranging from sea level rise to infrastructure damage to food insecurity.

Arctic sea ice has likely reached its maximum extent for the year, at 14.77 million square kilometers (5.70 million square miles) on March 21, 2021, according to scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder. The 2021 maximum is tied with 2007 for seventh lowest in the 43-year satellite record.
