“Lands beneath the bow!” The shouted warning wakes the captain of the Russian frigate, NEVA, from his afternoon nap as the ship runs aground in narrow, cliff-bounded Sitka Sound.
The 12th Annual Polar Technology Conference is bringing together scientists and engineers to exchange information, ideas and solutions on deploying research systems in polar environments.
Lauren Culler is having a hard time finding anyone to work with her. Perhaps it’s because scientists, who travel to the remotest regions, braving the most bruising conditions to unravel almost any mystery, aren’t too keen on facing Culler’s chosen subject of research: the mosquito.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has released "The Arctic Report Card: Update for 2015." The report shows that the Arctic continues to warm about twice as fast as other parts of the globe, a phenomenon called Arctic amplification.
The Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) and the Joint Antarctic School Expedition (JASE) are National Science Foundation supported science and cultural exchange programs for high school students. The three-week JSEP program takes place entirely in Greenland.
When the NSF research station closed for the season in mid-August, staff spent the next weeks putting a summer's worth of equipment and infrastructure to bed while supporting experiments that run year round.
After more than a decade of international coordination and planning, scientists are off to examine the remote Petermann Glacier region in Northwestern Greenland. Tag along via the team's blog and social media!
The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is a large-scale project funded by the National Science Foundation to document ecological changes across the U.S. over the next three decades. We wanted to check in to learn more about NEON and the exciting work underway in Alaska.
NSF-funded geologist Jason Briner went to China earlier this month to discuss his Arctic research. Virtually, that is. Jason attended a Skype session with fifth-grade students at The International School of Tianjin, an International Baccalaureate (IB) school in Tianjin, China.
