Below are RealAudio links to a two-part interview with Dr. Mike Castellini, a seal researcher from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, who's in Antarctica aboard the National Science Foundation research ship Nathaniel B. Palmer. Because the interview format of this series differs from our usual format, a transcript is not available at the present time.
Antarctic Interview, Part One (8:00:00)
Where do Arctic scientists go when it's too dark and cold to do research? Why, Antarctica, of course. Right now it's summer in Antarctica, where Dr. Mike Castellini, a researcher from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, is studying seal populations. Arctic Science Journeys Radio producer Doug Schneider spoke recently to Castellini via satellite phone, and brings us the first of a two-part interview.
Last week on Arctic Science Journeys Radio, we heard from Dr. Mike Castellini, a researcher from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, who's studying seals in Antarctica. This week, in part two of that interview, Castellini describes life on the ship, how they catch seals, and how others can become Antarctic scientists.
