A weblog for all IPY-NL science expeditions
One of the main projects to present polar science to a wide audience in The Netherlands is the development of a weblog for all IPY-NL science expeditions. A Dutch public broadcasting corporation – VPRO – will report online and on national radio about the expeditions of the Dutch science teams.
A special VPRO ‘Pooljaar’ website will serve as a portal for about 18 weblogs featuring polar researchers during their fieldwork, including video and audio contributions. Although all written information is in Dutch, it includes fascinating pictures and several audio and video contributions are in English. In January 2007 the first IPY-NL expedition started with a weblog from the Australian icebreaker vessel
