AGU 2004 Fall Meeting Press Conference

Larry Hinzman organized a very well attended Press Conference, titled: 'Recent Changes in the Arctic Hydrologic Cycle.' The Press Conference focused on recent changes in the Arctic hydrologic cycle and their far-reaching implications beyond the Arctic. Researchers are documenting long-term changes in the storage and transport of fresh water in the Arctic atmosphere, lakes, rivers ice, and seas. Scientists believe that these changes are a response to warming and that the changes in the Arctic are the first sign of a global climate on the move. This panel discussed the latest findings on the intensifying hydrological cycle at the top of the world, and its potential implications and effects on society.

PARTNERS Project: Anya Suslova and the Lena River

In August 2003, PARTNERS project (http://ecosystems.mbl.edu/partners) US scientists Bruce Peterson, Max Holmes, and Jim McClelland, and Russian scientists Alexander Zhulidov and Ludmila Kosmenko undertook a two week sampling cruise on the Lena River in Siberia. The PARTNERS team had the good fortune of having the able assistance of Anya Suslova, the 13 year old daughter of the ship's captain, Mikhael Suslov. Anya amazed everyone with her sharp mind, active participation in sample collection and processing, and rapid grasp of the overall goals of the PARTNERS project. Learn more about this exciting partnership.
