Cover of Science and Engineering Indicators 2008

The cover for Science and Engineering Indicators 2008 celebrates the 2007-2009 International Polar Year with a montage of photographic images from the Arctic and Antarctic regions. At the center is an ice cave at Loudwater Cove, on Anvers Island. Arcing above it are smaller images showing (right to left) the Beacon Valley field camp in the Dry Valleys of southern Victoria Land, a deepwater cnidarian, a female polar bear and her cub on sea ice, a skua chick, an aurora borealis, a sunset at Cape Hallett, and an LC-130 Hercules cargo aircraft.
