Breaking the Ice: Researchers study climate change in Antarctica. Sombrilla: UTSA publication
Next month, Steve Ackley at UTSA and Sarah Anderson, a Boerne High School science teacher will join a crew of 22 researchers from several countries for a two-month expedition. Sarah Anderson was chosen from among 150 educators who submitted applications to the PolarTREC program that will provide outreach information and resources for educators and students to access. The faculty in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science Laboratory for Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics hope to develop a program of researchers to accompany future NSF-funded trips to conduct sea ice observations. http://www.utsa.edu/today/2007/08/antarctica.cfm

A major IPY project, SIMBA joined American and Belgian scientists on an expedition to obtain information about sea ice thickness, its extent and physical and biogeochemical properties in an effort to understand how it evolves and decays. Another key goal was to characterize the interchange between the ocean, atmosphere and the ice. http://antarcticsun.usap.gov/science/contenthandler.cfm?id=1293
