Interview: “The Arctic LTER Project: John Hobbie Discusses Arctic Tundra Ecosystem Research”

Science Poles – Since the mid-1970s, Dr. John Hobbie from the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, has been travelling up to Alaska during the summer months to look at Arctic tundra and freshwater ecosystems near Toolik Lake in Alaska’s North Slope region. Notice able changes have occurred over the past 30 years in the Toolik Lake region, the site of the Arctic Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) project. The LTER program has 26 collaborative projects in which researchers are monitoring a variety of ecosystems in the U.S., the Antarctic, and a Pacific coral reef. More than 1,800 scientists and students are taking part in these research projects.
