Ultimately, the scientists hope their observations will indicate whether an irreversible permafrost tipping point may be near at hand. While scientists don't yet believe the Arctic has reached that tipping point, no one knows for sure. "We hope CARVE may be able to find that 'smoking gun,' if one exists," Miller said.

a very interesting article, something to stimulate the brain and make us think. A great article to show students if they finish their work early and you need something to keep them entertained.
Rachel Goods's comment, November 4, 2013 6:52 PM
These are very interesting facts that would be a good hook to use in a class when you are talking about mapping.

Just for fun! It will be engaging video for children to begin to "think like a geographer". A good attention grabber and captivate the children's mind into the world of geography! The video gives examples of how in geography we label landmarks and events in our environment with unique terms. Overall, gives the perspective we are to hold when studying geography.
