UAB in Antarctica 2007
UAB first took you to Antarctica in 2000. Since then, the importance of such pristine environments was underscored by the designation of the ocean preserve in Hawaii. The UAB team will discuss and photograph everything from their research and what it takes to dive in this extreme environment to skiing on the glacier and impact of climate changes. K-12 students will find special features just for them.
