Earth Link State of the Cryosphere: This site provides time-series data for Northern Hemisphere snow cover, mountain glacier fluctuations, sea ice extent and concentration, changes in ice shelves, and global sea level. It also provides a snapshot of current permafrost conditions.
Earth Link 2 Polar Science and Global Warming: Earth has two polar regions -- the Arctic and the Antarctic -- and each is considerably larger than the lower 48 United States. The most distinctive features of both polar regions are cold climate and abundant snow and ice, caused by the extreme annual variation of sunlight.
Earth Link 3 Speak like a Native Want to speak like an Antarctic Native (duh, there are no Antarctic natives, no indigenous people here.)

Earth Link 4 Students Enter Competition to Produce a Zero-Emissions Snowmobile February 26, 2007 - Snowmobiles long ago replaced dogsleds for hauling people and cargo in the polar regions, particularly in remote research stations and field camps such as those on the Greenland Ice Sheet and in Antarctica.
Earth Link 5 Andrew C. Revkin Andrew has been reporting for the New York Times on the environment since 1995. He spearheaded a three-part Times series and one-hour documentary in 2005 on the transforming Arctic.
