How can the ocean be colder than 0 degrees C, the temperature at which water freezes? As it turns out, the concentration of the particles (in this case, the ions from the salt) in ocean water lowers the temperature at which the saltwater will freeze. Students will learn how ocean water freezes at a lower temperature than freshwater by

This one hour PolarConnect event Celebrates Antarctica Day 2011 with PolarTREC teacher Michelle Brown (at McMurdo Station) and esteemed polar researcher Dr. M. Kennicutt II. The two presenters share their perspectives on the importance of Antarctica's geography, science, and model for international peaceful collaboration.
PolarTREC teacher Michelle Brown writes for the Austin American Statesman about her upcoming expedition to Antarctica. Michelle outlines her plans to travel to Antarctica to work with researchers at the remote McMurdo Station and the automated geophysical observatory at the South Pole Station. In addition to helping researchers study the human impacts on the southern continent, she will also install
