Operating Safe and Successful Field Research Campaigns in the Polar Regions
Seth Campbell
University of Maine / US Army ERDC-Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab

Polar scientists work in some of the most amazing, yet also remote and potentially dangerous environments on the planet. Seth Campbell explains what it takes to design, safely operate, and successfully complete field work in such remote areas. The webinar provides insight into remote field work from the early stages of planning to the safe completion of the project with emphasis on real world mistakes and successes, unexpected field challenges, and criteria that may be used for selection of early career scientists as field assistants.
