Hi, everyone --
Our fascinating Antarctic iceberg research voyage aboard the NSF icebreaker Nathaniel B. Palmer is over now and we are safely home again enjoying the warmth and light of summer. But my two blogs about the trip will remain online as a polar teaching resource for kids of all ages. Over the next few months, I will continue to enrich both blogs with high-quality links to sites of related interest and with additional facts about the subject material -- icebergs, the Antarctic oceans, global warming, Antarctic sea life, scientific method, and much more. Both blogs can be accessed via icebreakerblog.org
In the darkness of Antarctic winter, a team of scientists on a lonely icebreaker will soon explore the mysterious icebergs of the Weddell Sea, with a twist. Children are invited. Global warming in the Antarctic has recently caused ancient ice shelves to shatter into thousands of free-drifting icebergs that affect the air, the water, and possibly Earth’s climate in complex, unknown ways. As the NSF-funded researchers seek answers, award-winning YA and children’s writer Nancy Etchemendy will recount each day’s events via daily posts to two blogs for different age groups (teens and middle-graders). Readers can ask questions and receive answers while the expedition is at sea, May 31 - June 30.
