More about the Exploratorium website: Ice Stories: Dispatches from Polar Scientists
What's it like to be a research scientist working in the Arctic or Antarctica? We gave polar scientists video cameras and asked them to document their field work. Webcasts produced at the poles are another part of the Ice Stories project.
