My friend Dr. Jeb Barrett studies long term effects of climate change on microorganism populations of the Antarctic Dry Valleys. You can ask Jeb and his colleagues questions about their research as well as...well anything you want about life in Antarctica.
1. Use the Biologists In Antarctica blog to post your questions.
a. Submit at least one well thought out question regarding the research.
b. Submit at least one well thought out question about climate change in general.
c. Submit at least one well though out question about the logistics of research in Antarctica.
2. Upon finding responses to your questions, write me a ONE page reflection (that includes your questions) and your experience talking with these scientists. What did you learn about their research? What interested you the most? Did you experience lead you to more questions or give you ideas for you own future plans? What about climate change?
To inform you about their research PRIOR to submitting questions, see the Biologists in Antarctica links posted on the LYNX page. One is an article to help you better understand what Dr. Barrett does. The other is the blog. You can find your way around once you're there :)
