Greenland: close up

And personal:

Deutsche Welle’s Ice Blog was born when environment journalist Irene Quaile started to travel in the Arctic as part of an international radio and online reporting network, with a project grant from the National Science Foundation to mark the International Polar Year. After visits to Spitsbergen and Arctic Alaska reporting on climate change issues, 2009 takes her to Zackenberg Ecological Monitoring Station in Eastern Greenland, and to other parts of the far northern island, which plays a key role in the global climate process. In between trips, the Ice Blogger writes regularly on climate-related news and views, from the global political level to grassroots efforts to tackle global warming.
