Toolik Lake: Models for the Arctic Tundra - Home

Karen Bejin Studies the Arctic Tundra in northern Alaska
29 May - 17 June 2004


21 June 2004 - Ms. Bejin has completed her field expedition and returned home.

Karen Bejin helped develop land-atmosphere energy and moisture flux models for artic tundra near the Toolik Field Station in northern Alaska. Karen worked with researchers from the Microwave Geophysics Group at the University of Michigan to collect data with sophisticated sensors to monitor the thickness and water content of permafrost, an important carbon sink in the arctic environment.

Karen teaches 6th grade science, English, and reading, and one section of accelerated 8th grade science at DeLong Middle School in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Karen has participated in research experience programs in Alaska, Wisconsin, and the American West, and has won several awards from state science associations. Karen looks forward to her TREC experience as an adventure in learning, and hopes to show her students stories and pictures of "what it's like to do research, what it's like to be working at something you love to do, and what it's like to be a life-long learner."

Dear Mrs. Bejin,
How are you doing? I'm good. I'm going on vacation on Friday morning. I am going to New Orleans and St. Louis.
Today I saw a double rainbow. It was cool, because it was also a full ...
