Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


If you are a freshwater scientist or have been involved in freshwater research you are invited to participate in a survey to help shape the science priorities for Arctic freshwater science over the next decade.

Dr. Philip Blaen, of University of Birmingham, UK, and Paschale Bégin at Universite Laval, are conducting an online survey to identify future priorities for Arctic freshwater science from an early-career researcher perspective. This follows an interactive discussion, held during the latest Arctic Science Summit Week (Toyama, Japan; May 2015), in which delegates were invited to suggest important topics in Arctic freshwater science.

This survey is designed to understand which of these topics are considered most important by the next generation of Arctic researchers. We expect to submit the results for publication in the new open-access journal Arctic Science in early 2016.
