Contact Quarterly;Summer/Fall2009, Vol. 34 Issue 2, p43
The article focuses on Moving North research project sponsored by the International Polar Year program in the University of Alaska, Anchorage. The co-directors of the project include Gabrielle Barnett from the U.S., Tinu Hettich of Switzerland, and Caroline Waters of Great Britain. Barnett gives description of the location of the North Pole which is at a fixed point from an imaginary lines that cover the earth. Meanwhile, Hettich explains the polar-coordinate system of world maps.
