Expeditions to the Polar Regions
November 9, 2009 10:01 AM   Subscribe

The Polar Discovery team has documented science in action from pole to pole during the historic 2007-2009 International Polar Year, and covered five scientific expeditions. The science projects explored a range of topics from climate change and glaciers, to Earth’s geology, biology, ocean chemistry, circulation, and technology at the icy ends of the earth. Through photo essays and other multimedia, they explain how scientists collected data and what they discovered about the rapidly changing polar regions. From the awesome folks at WHOI.

Polar years seem to be longer than Solar years.

Apropos of nothing, but my friend Helen was the writer for the 5th expedition. Yay Helen!

And yet again, an expedition to the Antarctic manages to hide the truth.

Hey brozek, I was just about to make the same comment about my friend Helen. :-)
