Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


In February, 2022 (exact dates TBD), the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine will host a multi-day virtual conference to discuss ground-penetrating radar, airborne radar, related technologies, and software use and needs within the Polar community.

The focus of this conference is to address: 1) current and future science and logistical drivers which may require or benefit from radar hardware and software, 2) current commercial (off-the-shelf), modified, and user-specific radar systems available to the science community, 3) ongoing radar technology R&D, 4) equipment and software community access, 5) radar education and training needs and options, and 6) facilitating radar usage in the broader science and logistics community.

In addition, this conference aims to address the specific need for radar within the Polar community including, but not limited to, glaciology, permafrost and periglacial environments, sea ice, geology, and geomorphology.

Interest form: Please fill out this questionnaire at your earliest convenience. This information will help to organize this conference to best fit the needs of the Polar community.
