WMO International Polar Day to Focus on Research above the Polar Regions
December 2008: The seventh quarterly International Polar Day, focusing on research above the Polar Regions, will be marked on 4 December 2008. The Day will include polar meteorology, atmospheric sciences, astronomy, and polar observations from space.
The International Polar Year 2007-8, organized through the
International Council for Science and the World Meteorological
Organization (WMO), is a scientific campaign focusing on the polar
regions. The polar regions provide crucial cooling processes for our
global climate system, and polar weather in both hemispheres influences
weather as far away as the tropics. [International Polar Year Website]
