Today, we’ll hook up with scientists at Palmer Research Station in the Western Antarctic Peninsula. This is one of the most rapidly warming places on earth, and the site of a Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Project. The scientists are getting ready for a month-long research cruise off the shores of western Antarctica, to study how this rich marine ecosystem is responding to melting sea ice and global climate change.
