Dates
-

And, we are back! Teacher Jon Pazol is headed to the Arctic! He's participating in an international ship-based research expedition, Nansen and Amundsen Basins Observational System (NABOS). The goal of this study is to develop a comprehensive and quantitative understanding of how the Eastern Eurasian Basin functions as a switchgear, accumulating and releasing major Arctic riverine transports and redistributing ice and freshwater between the eastern and western Arctic in response to atmospheric and oceanic forcings. Jon will be at sea until late October. You can read about his experience through his journals, view photos, and ask your questions.
