National Parks Traveler;2/10/2013, p1
The article offers information on Voyageurs National Park located in Minnesota be capturing as many as six moose this month to fit them with state-of-the-art Global Positioning System to know the effect of climate on moose. It informs that the project is a collaborative effort among scientists from Voyageurs National Park and the University of Minnesota-Duluth's Natural Resources Research Institute. It informs that Voyageurs officials are concerned about declines in moose populations in other parts of Minnesota and adjacent Ontario.

    Glaciers in the Tomor region of Tianshan Mountains preserve vital water resources. However, these glaciers suffer from strong mass losses in the recent years because of global warming. From 2008 to 2009, a large-scale scientific expedition has been carried out in this region. As an individual...
