A senior operational meteorologist from the Met Office came to visit us to share her experiences of Antarctica. Catherine has visited Antarctica twice with the British Antarctic Survey and had lots to share with us. We learnt about how she travels to the continent, the kit she has to take in order to keep warm and about some of the research she carries out. She also showed us photos and videos of Rothera Research Station. We learnt about the weather and climate in Antarctica; how it varies over the continent, how it changes over the year and how it compares to where we live. We even did an experiment to find out how air pressure affects temperature. We particularly enjoyed finding out about some of the wildlife that can be found in Antarctica.
