Our first LEARNZ field trip

This morning we went on our first field trip to Antarctica. We started our audioconference listening to Darren (the LEARNZ teacher) talking about what it is like in Antarctica.

One of the things they talked about is that the amount of fresh water there makes it really good for studing climate change. I wonder why this is?

The laboratory of the world...
Another aspect is that it is relatively untouched. Humans have not done anything to this continent. antarctica dictates much of the weather around the world.

I also wonder what relevance we can find to our own inquiries.

Some words to learn: tectonic, paleontology, methodology, core, eccentricity (read the first bullet point on this page)
