A public forum and art exhibit was held at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, featuring Palmer LTER scientist Scott Doney presenting

As a means of increasing the number of U.S. citizens and nationals trained in science and engineering disciplines of military importance, the Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded Tyler Rohr, a three-year graduate fellowships! Tyler is a Palmer LTER affiliated graduate from the Joint Program with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The Department of Defense offers these fellowships to individuals who have demonstrated the ability and special aptitude for advanced training in science and engineering.

Even after more than two decades of monitoring one of the fastest changing regions on the planet, researchers with the Palmer Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program can still encounter a few surprises.

Scientists at Palmer Station, Antarctica, are studying how penguins gather enough food to raise their chicks. Josh Kohut of Rutgers University and Bill Fraser of the Polar Oceans Research Group are part of a team using advanced robotic sea gliders to sample ocean currents and trace energy all the way up the food chain to the penguins.
