A PhD geophysicists and PhD atmospheric scientist writes the science post. Alaska-related science posts address geophysical or geochemical phenomena occurring in the State. These posts cover topics like permafrost, hot springs, weather, wildfires, and air quality to educate your about what you see in when traveling Alaska, and help your to dress weather-appropriately in style.

Educational posts on Alaska weather include funnel clouds, Chinook, and inversions. Finally, some posts provide solutions to mitigate negative impacts of polluted indoor air and to reduce Sun exposure during the long white nights.

Many fashion items wouldn’t be there if there were no science. Research and in early times trial-and-error made many apparel possible. Without research, there weren’t the basics for textiles from many renewable resources or synthetics as well as clothing for thermal-physiological comfort in hot and cold climate or sweating activities.
