Working with the Media
David Vaughan
British Antarctic Survey

The media can serve as a tool to amplify communication of your work, or it can accidently distort your research results when translating it into layman's terms. This webinar will help you work productively with the Media.

Recorded on 8 February, 2011.

This video is part of an online lecture series coordinated by APECS, US NSF ARCSS Thermokarst Project, and the University of Canterbury to help early career polar researchers navigate their careers. For more information on the full series, visit
