SnowSTAR 2007 Barrenlands Traverse

by admin ~ March 16th, 2007

Five Americans and three Canadians set out today for their 3,000 mile snowmobile journey across the arctic from Circle, Alaska, to Baker Lake, Nunavut. It’s part of the scientific program of the International Polar Year, and is funded by the National Science Foundation. They will visit 11 villages, dozens of historical locations, document snow conditions and climate change, and raise awareness for Polar Regions. Their webpage includes background on the expedition, an interactive map, updates from the trail, and activities for up to 50 schools that are tracking the trip. The Alaska Star interviews expedition member Henry Huntington, and reports on the beginning of their journey.
