Notes

The sun is presently returning to the Arctic marking the end of the polar night. In Tromsø the day of the sun (soldagen in Norwegian), 21 January, is marked by informal celebrations where children and employees enjoy sweet buns colored yellow with tumeric called solboller. But remember that the actual return of the sun depends on the definition of twilight and on the ground relief.

Notes

In this Christmas episode we would like to start by wishing all listeners and subscribers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We also try, admittedly with limited effect, to sort out some of the confusion around Santa Claus, his residence and whereabouts as well as some of the peculiarities of his reindeer and his mailboxes in Longyearbyen (Svalbard), in Nuuk (Greenland) and Rovaniemi (Finland).

Notes

The Antarctic Treaty was signed in Washington on December 1, 1959. Its goal is to ensure "in the interest of all mankind that Antarctica shall continue for ever to be used exclusively for peaceful purposes and shall not become the scene or object of international discord." The treaty entered into force in 1961 and currently has 53 parties. According to the treaty Antarctica is a scientific preserve and military activity is banned. The headquarters of the Antarctic Treaty Secretariat are located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Within the treaty there are two important conventions: CCAS= Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Seals and CCAMLR= Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources.
