Crossword Puzzle Winner

Congratulations to Kate Morrone for being the first one to submit a complete and correct crossword. John Stanton gets an honorable mention.

Where she ever came up with “polynyas” we’ll never know, but it’s generally used to describe large holes in the arctic ice sheet that stay open year after year in more or less the same place. The word itself is borrowed from Russian. Thanks to everyone who gave it a shot!

    Nice job Kate! Yes agree with Bill polynyas does not exactly roll off one’s tongue.
