Here they are seen in Moscow’s Red Square. Sobczak is one of the principal investigators and Crowley is one of 14 students participating in the Polaris Project, a National Science Foundation-funded program to enhance undergraduate research and education at several U.S. and Russian institutions. The project involves development of new undergraduate courses in Arctic System Science and a field course in the Siberian Arctic.
