50,000 scientists Head to the Poles to assess Climate Change
A coordinated effort consisting of 50,000 scientists from over 63 nations is being sponsored by the U.N.’s World Meteorological Organization and the International Council for Science. $1.5 billion dollars is being funded for the research which is planned to start on March 1, 2007 and go until 2009. A full range of summer and winter will be evaluated, as well as the eco-systems that inhabit the poles ( nearly 4 million creatures.)
Everything from submarines, icebreakers, and satellites will be used to study the exact nature of how climate change is being affecting on the poles. Also, solar radiation will be researched as well as the marine life. All these projects will be completely coordinated to give the scientific community a detailed assessment of the conditions on the poles. This is the most extensive research project that is being conducted in 50 years, so the information that is obtained from it will be invaluable.
