Heading North

I leave tomorrow for three weeks in Svalbard in the Norwegian Arctic, 
serving as lecturer aboard the National Geographic Explorer.  Word has 
it that they have been seeing large numbers of polar bears on the ice 
this year, despite the dramatic reduction of icepack throughout the 
Arctic ecosystem. It will be great to see bears again, and to better 
understand how they are adapting to changing conditions.
I will try and post pictures and comments from the field, but – 
surprise, surprise –  internet access is apparently pretty challenging 
at 80 degrees north. (Maybe that’s a good thing…)  In any case, 
I will certainly post whenever I can, or else I will save my comments 
until I reach more hospitable latitudes. Stay cool.
