The South Pole Station Webcams There are two South Pole Station webcams, one is mounted on the Atmospheric Research Observatory (ARO) building and is directed at the elevated Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station building.
We have only a few decades of data, and in climate terms this is probably too short to demonstrate that either the Antarctic increase or the Arctic decrease is anything other than natural variability.
Image Availability Live webcam images from the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station are based on two conditions: communications availability and the Antarctic seasons. Satellite coverage of South Pole Station is available for roughly 9 hours each day, during which time live images are sent to the web site.
Communications Availability Live images of the South Pole are carried to the U. The daily satellite communications window occurs approximately four minutes earlier each day.
She said it was becoming increasingly apparent that long-term cycles in ocean temperatures were responsible for a significant proportion of the ice decline in the Arctic – a process that may be starting to reverse.
Prof Curry also revealed that because of the ‘pause’, in which world average temperatures have not risen for more than 16 years, the Arctic ice decline has been ‘touted’ by many as the most important evidence for continued global warming.
British glaciologist in Antarctica recalls rock concerts & explicit sex with his girlfriend. BP accidently drills into another dimension & releases monsters; they drill on the moon to fix it & oops, they release Cthulhu (the nasty alien from Lovecraft) Prequel to 1982 film. Might not have the cultural resonance or the academic analyses of the earlier films. And then bring back Hitler as a giant robot, and then send a swastika-covered UFO-shaped plane to spread flesh-eating bacteria around Earth.
R Ebert `as an idea the film is facinating, but as an experience it grows tedious, the concerts lack closeups, the sex lacks content, and Antarctica could use a few penguins'. Story moved from Mc Murdo to new South Pole base, female British agent (& possible love interest) changed to male UN agent, & just not a great film. Blair Witch Project style 'documentary' about psychologist whose hypnotized patents claim they have been abducted by aliens in Nome, Alaska. But it did evoke memories of watching the 1982 film at Pole in 1985. Could be the worst Antarctic movie EVER Film project was in development, directed by Guillermo del Toro, produced by James Cameron, in 3D, with Tom Cruise. 2011, but in Jan 2013 del Toro says he'll try again to get it made.
In recent days a new scandal over the integrity of temperature data has emerged, this time in America, where it has been revealed as much as 40 per cent of temperature data there are not real thermometer readings.
Many temperature stations have closed, but rather than stop recording data from these posts, the authorities have taken the remarkable step of ‘estimating’ temperatures based on the records of surrounding stations.
Antarctic Seasons At the South Pole, the sun rises and sets based on seasons rather than days as it does in mid-latitudes; hence the famous polar six months of daylight and six months of darkness.
