Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The enclosed Fall 2015 edition of the IASC Progress provides an overview of ongoing activities and initiatives of the five IASC Working Groups (WGs): Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social & Human and Terrestrial. IASC is engaged in all fields of Arctic research and the WGs are the main scientific working bodies. Their primary function is to encourage and support science-led circumarctic international programs by offering opportunities for planning and coordination, and by facilitating communication and access to facilities. Each WG is composed of up to two scientists from each IASC member country, appointed by the national adhering bodies, and engages Early Career Scientists through the IASC Fellowship Program.
