A different type of study. Never used before

I found this absolutely fascinating. There is so much not yet known and the risks involved in the studies are commendable.

It was lengthy and a bit confusing.
foroughem 2017-09-30 00:02:45

it was very useful for me, because I have challenge with it to find the correct answer it takes me about more than 3 hours, and I have excited to solve the problem. generally, it was interesting for me.

Really good introduction to Antarctic forecasting and how things work in Antarctica. I'll be recommending the unit as an introduction to people who have not been south before.

I liked how short and synthesized the material was however some parts were too fast for me so captions would help more.

greenhouse gases, emissions, reductions, our polar regions, ice caps, are all important to our future generations to come.

This module is definately an education. The Antarctic plays a key role in global weather, but is overlooked by most of the world. This extreme cold, dry and windy part of the earth is an outpost for a group of scientists and a support team looking for the answers in a quest to determine and mitigate global warming. Once merely a curiosity for exploration, it is now a focus for those studying meteorology. The stability of atmospheric and ocean currents are connected to this harsh outpost of the world. This module provides key details on how the Antarctic weather and its scientists are paramount to the future of our earth.
