After 28 hours of travel time through 4 airports, I have arrived at home at last. There are just a few days remaining before Christmas to prepare for the holidays. I will be posting some final reflections, travel pictures and of course more resources in the coming weeks. Thank you to everyone who followed our Winter SamplingSampling refers to the process of selecting units or portions of a larger group that will be studied in order to answer questions about the larger group. The units can be people, water samples, ice cores, or any other appropriate object. Participants will explore the meaning of sampling and how it impacts experimental design and explore factors that define and limit sampling in the variety of projects visited during the expedition. They will consider how results from the chosen samples are used to describe the bigger target of a project's study. expedition. It was truly an adventure of a lifetime!
