Over the past few years, organizations like National Geographic and the National Academy of Sciences have been offering up interactive features on their websites. Many print newspapers have entered this arena as of late, including the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune. Recently, the Tribune offered up this tremendously interesting and visually engaging portrait of the effects of global warming on and around Antarctica. Visitors can start their travels through the continent by looking at the ways in which the thawing sea ice is taking its toll on the Adelie penguins, and then continue to learn about how scientists are attempting to reconstruct the history of various global climate changes. After that, they can take a 360 degree look around the South Pole and also listen to the voices of people who live and work on Antarctica. Free registration required.
