A polynya, writes freelance journalist Julia Rosen, is an open expanse of water—an oasis—amid sea ice. Julia (@1juliarosen) won the 2019 Best of the Northwest Science Writing Award for Journalism for her story, “Oasis of Open Water” in @hakaimagazine. Julie traveled to Canada and Greenland to talk with Inuit about their work to protect their local polynya. More from Julia at julia-rosen.com image: NASA
