Description:

A team of scientists from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) is studying the presence of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in the Antarctic. During January and February 2002 an educator travelled there to participate in the study, and posted daily reports. In addition, this site contains learning activities that you can use to find out how scientists think and work. These include research on individual persistent organic pollutants, following the progress of the international treaty "The Stockholm Declaration", and solving math problems related to techniques and tools. The glossary will help you understand terms that the scientists use.
