Toolik Lake: Pollutants - Home

Scott McComb Studies Pollutants in the Alaskan Arctic
8 June - 30 June 2004

The WebQuest was created by TREC teacher, Scott McComb. For more details about the WebQuest, please contact him directly at: scott_trec@arcus.org.

Follow Scott McComb as he travels north of the Arctic Circle to the Toolik Field Station in Alaska in order to study pollutants in Arctic freshwater systems. Scott will work with Yu-Ping Chin from The Ohio State University and other team members to collect and analyze water samples in Toolik Lake in order to understand the effect of pollutants on Arctic ecosystems.

Scott teaches high school physical science and physics at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center in Columbus, Ohio and also instructs a college-level "Science by Inquiry" class. Scott has participated in several field research projects and has received numerous awards for excellence in teaching. Scott expects to use his TREC experience to convey polar science not only to his classroom but also to larger audiences through curriculum writing and workshop presentations.
