It’s a good deal chillier at Toolik Field Station, Alaska, where MBL Logan Science Journalism Fellows are delving into the world of field station research, guided by investigators from the MBL Ecosystems Center. Check out the fellows’ blog, with beautiful photos of the Arctic and its midnight sun, at toolikblog.wordpress.com. The fellows will be at Toolik until July 1.
