Imaging The Arctic: "In Spring 2013, based out of the small settlements of Niaqornat and Kullorsuaq, expeditionary artist Maria Coryell-Martin will accompany scientist Dr. Kristin Laidre onto the pack ice of Baffin Bay." They are keeping an online field journal detailing Dr. Laidre's study of the effects of sea-ice loss on narwhals and polar bears, with Maria Coryell-Martin's illustrations accompanying field notes.

The closest I've ever come to that part of the world is 30,000 feet up, and seeing it from the window of a plane kept me mesmerized.

Also, in my next life, I might like to grow up to be an expeditionary artist.

Thanks. This is lovely (although it will also undoubtedly be depressing at points).
