Scientists of the Next-Generation Ecosystem Experiments are blogging from the Arctic this summer. Follow their adventures at http://ngee-arctic.blogspot.com/. Participants share troubles and triumphs from the field in entries with headings like "Flying Wild Alaska" and "Hitting the Tundra." "The blog shares the challenge of sampling, testing, and modeling an ecosystem containing vast stores of trapped carbon that, as permafrost warms, may be released and spur further warming," said project director Stan Wullschleger of the Climate Change Science Institute at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
