HEY, IT’S COLD AT THE F**KIN’ POLE:
Dan Satterfield, a meteorologist at WHNT TV in Huntsville, Ala., is going to the South Pole
in January 2010 as part of a National Science Foundation educational mission, according to a recent NSF news release. Satterfield and Ann Posegate of the National Environmental Education Foundation will create a series of articles, video segments, photo essays and blog postings about NSF research at the pole, including the current status of the “ozone hole” and an ice-core drilling study that will help scientists understand the Earth’s climate nearly 100,000 years ago. Posegate is the outreach coordinator for the NEEF’s Earth Gauge program, which provides meteorologists with environmental information tied to weather reports. You’ll be able to see the stuff she and Satterfield create by visiting www.earthgauge.net
