Arctic rivers

Heraclitus said "Panta rhei", which means "all flows" but... did he mean also the Arctic?
When you think about this distant polar region, you probably think about glaciers, ice and snow. What about rivers or lakes? Are there any?
Yes, there are! Meet some Great Arctic Rivers and learn whether water is freezing or flowing in the Arctic.
We will have a closer look on how does the work of a hydrologist look like at the Polish Polar Station. Students will learn what is a catchment and discharge, and how to measure how much water flows in a river.
Also - do you know what Winnie the Pooh, buckets and oranges have to do with streams and work of hydrologists? Find out during a live lesson broadcasted from Hornsund - Polish Polar Station on Spitsbergen!
