With stunning footage shot in the Canadian arctic, this DVD identifies and explores the physical and human factors, including climate change, that affect carbon and water cycles in the tundra. We see the research and monitoring techniques scientists are using to identify and record these changes and we examine the reasons this data is gathered. The resource shows also show these same techniques can be used by students as part of their own fieldwork investigations.
