The Polar Discovery team has documented science in action from pole to pole during the historic 2007-2009 International Polar Year, and covered five scientific expeditions. The science projects have explored a range of topics from climate change and glaciers, to Earth’s geology, biology, ocean chemistry, circulation, and technology at the icy ends of the earth. Through daily photo essays, we explain how scientists collect data and what they are discovering about the rapidly changing polar regions.
What’s next for the Polar Discovery team?
Even though the International Polar Year has ended, science will continue in the Arctic and Antarctic. Stay tuned for future Polar Discovery expeditions to the icy ends of the earth.
Take a look – it is a treasure trove of information!
Masha Allaah may Allaah reward you for taking the time to find things out and for sharing with all of us.
Just a side note sis, I can see on top of your post it says 9th August is 29th Sha’baan. Is it in Islamabad or is it a mistake. Actually in the gulf and other areas that possibly sight the hilaal first the date today is 28th Sha’baan (9th August). Just needed a clarification.
Alhamdulillah, glad that I can help :)
As to the Islamic date, this is a WP plugin and I have not been able to tweak it, especially since my WP is an ancient version :P Having said that, Pakistan is always a day behind with regards to the start of Ramadan and the celebration of `Eid… *sigh*
Ok. Yes I know its always the case in the Sub continent, same in Sri Lanka, but due to many reasons we take the International sighting, masha Allaah.
