Nicholas Haus of Wisconsin Environmental Resortations LLC presents: Soil Research at the Antarctic Peninsula: Images from the Fastest Warming Place on Eearth The Western Antarctic Peninsula is a one of the most biologically important andsensitive areas in the Southern Ocean. Several animal species rely on small icefreeareas as breeding grounds. Although the Western Antarctic Peninsula is oneof the fastest warming places on the planet, relatively little is known about thesoils of the region. This presentation will discuss results from 2010-2013 soil andpermafrost investigations to the Western Antarctic Peninsula. Perhaps of moreinterest, the presentation will also discuss Antarctic travel, lodging, facilities, andlogistics. And yes, there will be penguin pictures.
