Talk of Alaska: International Polar Year (Polarpalooza!)

Scientists will be all over the Arctic this summer — partly because of last year’s record withdrawl of sea ice and partly because it’s the International Polar Year (IPY). This week, there’s even a scientific road show in Alaska, called “Polarpalooza.” Join us as we learn more about this year’s polar research.
