POLAR-PALOOZA Baton Rouge. Louisiana and Mississippi, sadly, already know the sometimes lethal connection between weather, climate and how we live: we're especially pleased to bring PPZA resources to post-Katrina Lousiana. Thanks to funding from NSF, from the Louisiana Board of Regents, and from the Irene W. and C.B. Pennington Foundation (grants awarded to Sophie Warny, Antarctic palynologist and Education Director at LSU), the LSU College of Basic Sciences has current on-site and on-line Antarctic Resources, as well as benefiting from the presence of LSU faculty (and PPZA travelers) Phil Bart and Brent Christner. (PPZA plans to tape onboard Phil's cruise from McMurdo to New Zealand in Jan-Feb 2008.) We'll be bringing stories from the Arctic, as well as recent video from the South. There'll be special sessions to engage, inform and inspire minority students about careers in polar research.
