Celsias.com (http://www.celsias.com/), the premier climate change science and news forum, today posted the second installment of its series, "Letters from Antarctica." Reporting on life and work at the bottom of the globe, writer Patricia Ballou provides a unique perspective on earth's most important barometer of climate change.
While most people picture Antarctica as a vast and open landscape, this installment of "Letters from Antarctica" presents an enclosed view of the continent. Set inside an Antarctic-igloo – known as a quinzhee – that's no larger than a doghouse, the tale features Ballou holed up with two friends, sharing moments of laughter and frustration, excitement and anxiety. Even the simplest of activities becomes a complex challenge and the most daunting conditions inspire cheer and optimism.
"'Letters from Antarctica,' is a great example of the unique and informative perspectives on climate change we provide to our readers," said Celsias.com CEO Nick Lewis. "Celsias strives to publish original and unparalleled content that engages people with all aspects of climate change and the environment."
Following her intriguing account of life inside an ice-shelter, Ballou reports on her Q&A with researcher Dr. Stephen F. Pekar. Pekar speaks about new techniques used in analyzing ice cores and the climate challenges now facing the planet.
