Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

For this upcoming Polar Week we are specifically highlighting how we are living in a #PolarWorld, where issues happening in the poles affect everyone on the globe. To help promote #PolarWorld, and polar research in general, we will release a series of blog posts during Polar Week. We want to discuss some of the key issues happening in the poles that are affecting the globe, talk about international collaborations and conducting research internationally, and help raise awareness about some of the international activities APECS is a part of.
