Pole to Pole
I've swapped penguins for polar bears this summer and am currently camping in the Arctic. I'm on an island called Spitsbergen, part of a group fo Norwegian islands called Svalbard, about 600 miles from the north pole. I'm a science leader for a group of budding young meteorologists on a BSES (British Schools Exploring Society) expedition.
You can see updates on the progress of the expedition over the coming month here, click on Svalbard summer '08.
Enjoy the summer!
