Beneath the surface of Lake Superior's shoreline lies thousands of years of geographic history. Two women science students from UW-Eau Claire, armed with ground penetrating radar, are conducting research that digs deep into that history to learn more about what the future may hold for the world's largest freshwater lake. In the video above, geography majors Hannah Adams and Alison Olmstead talk about the study they're doing and the need for more women to get involved in this type of scientific research.
