Seasons and Biomes IPY Pole-to-Pole Videoconference 2008
For a second time, students from Alaska and Argentina will have an opportunity to compare polar climates and environments through a Seasons and Biomes Project Pole-to-Pole Videoconference which will take place on 8 April 2008 at 10:00am–12:00 noon Alaska Time, 3:00–5:00 pm Argentina Time. Students from around the world will be able to join this event for the follow-up web chat and forum on 10–11 April 2008 and the Chief Scientist's Blog discussion.
The videoconference this year is more focused on student research interests and questions about the Taiga and Tundra biomes. The Seasons and Biomes Project is concluding the first year of observations and study of the Taiga and Tundra biomes with a Student Research Campaign. The Research Campaign is designed to engage students in Tundra and Taiga biomes with students from other Seasons and Biomes Project Network schools, with schools in other biomes, and with research scientists conducting research in polar and boreal forest areas.
In preparation for the videoconference, the following presentations about the Esperanza Research Base in Antarctica, and the region, are available: Presentation 1, Presentation 2, Presentation 3. (all ppt)
The videoconference, web chat, and web forum begin Phase 2 of the student research campaign. In this phase, students will be able to discuss their questions and research interests with scientists.
