The seismic equipment that is being used for TAMNNET (studying the Transantarctic Mountains) was specially engineered for use in polar climates. Polar projects commonly require a level of support that is several times that of seismic experiments in less demanding environments inclusive of very remote deployments. This site offers great engineering insights, design drawings, and additional related links.
This presentation, given by Robert Suydam, at the 2012 Arctic Ocean Ecosystem Workshop in Barrow, Alaska, is an overview of the resilience of the people of the North Slope with respect to their whaling history. The presentation showcases the history of both the science and traditional knowledge used in attempting to track whale population health and the ways in which
Rachel Potter presents her research on the use of radar to measure surface currents in the top 2 m of the water column in the Chukchi Sea. The information gained from her research allows her to determine where water is going and how fast it is flowing, which can aid in issues of search and rescue, contaminant spills, marine navigation
Follow the Polar Expedition is a booklet designed for students to help them learn about the 2012 Chukchi Sea Offshort Monitoring in the Drilling Area (COMIDA) Hanna Shoal Ecosystem Study with PolarTREC teacher Deanna Wheeler. The expedition is August 5-25, 2012, aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter.
The booklet has terms used on the ship as well as several activities
Polar science is a topic both your students and you can get into. This publication gives you a variety of angles to choose from in implementing a study of polar science. This resource was created under a National Science Foundation Grant by Middle School Portal 2: Math & Science Pathways.
The purpose of this bibliography is to provide researchers at Library and Archives Canada with a listing of primary printed sources for the study of the search for the Northwest Passage in the early nineteenth century.
This site is dedicated to the heroic explorers of the Polar Regions and the surrounding islands. As you browse through this site, you will witness an extensive mix of reference material that will be useful to philatelists (those who study stamps and postal history) and students of polar history alike. Both Arctic and Antarctic resources are available. Many of the
