Description:
Antarctica is interesting for many types of researchers. For example, glaciologists study the ice and snow, while oceanographers look at the oceans. The ice, snow and oceans affect the global climate and are presently changing as a result of global warming. The many other types of researchers who work here include geologists (who study rocks), astronomers (who study outer space), and meteorologists (who study the weather). How do researchers study the polar regions? They visit the regions and take measurements from permanent research stations, temporary field stations, or ships. Researchers can also collect data from satellites and from automated ground instruments that monitor conditions in remote locations.
