Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

One of the easiest ways to share your research with friends, family and others is to use a blog. These can be daily details on what you are working on in the field or in the lab, or once-a-week updates. Here we share with you some of the blogs from APECS members and other polar organizations.

APECS Polar Outreach Blog

The APECS Polar Outreach Blog is a new initiative started by the APECS Education and Outreach Committee to showcase outreach activities by scientists, researchers, research institutions and field stations in the Polar Regions and communities. We want to highlight ongoing outreach efforts as well as provide resources and examples of both successes and challenges for current outreach practitioners. If you have an outreach story you'd like to have featured or know of a Polar research institution or field station actively pursuing outreach, public consultation or community based research, please email your story or suggestions for a story to: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Where does your Goose take you?

apecs logo webCanada GooseAPECS and the manufacturer of extreme-weather outerwear, Canada Goose®, teamed up to highlight the work done by polar early career researchers and to keep them warm during the Where does your Goose take you? program.

A competition was organized in Spring 2014 where APECS and Canada Goose® were looking for APECS members doing field work in the Arctic or the Antarctic during 2014/15. In total APECS received 56 applicants for the 'Where does your goose take you' program. Each selected Where does your Goose take you? participant were given a Canada Goose® Expedition Jacket. The winners were:

  • Lydie Lescarmontie (Australia)
  • Marc Oliva (Spain)
  • Pierre Dutrieux (UK)
  • Pamela Wong (Canada)
  • Andrian Vlkakhov (Russia)
  • Emily Stevenson (USA)

Their task was to write two blog entries throughout the year, highlighting their polar research (science program, field sites, travel, workshops, field courses etc.). Participants also worked with the project coordinators to select photos from all participants that will be used to highlight their research locations on an interactive map.
