During the recent Arctic Science Summit Week (31 March - 7 April, Prague, Czech Republic) there were two evening poster sessions where early career researchers had the opportunity to showcase their work and impress a team of judges. The well-deserved prizes were awarded on the final day at the closing ceremony. Prizes were awarded for each of the IASC working groups in addition to a 'cross-cutting' prize. The competition was jointly organised by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) and APECS and coordinated by Ruth Hindshaw. We would like to thank all the judges who contributed their time to judge the posters and of course to all the presenters!
Atmopshere: Elena Kharyutkina "Tendencies in Current Climate Changes and Atmospheric Circulation Variability in the Arctic Region of West Siberia"
Cryosphere: Erlend Knudsen "Observational Evidence for Predictive Skills from Arctic Summer Sea Ice Extent"
Cross-Cutting: Diana Mastracci "“Hacking” Traditional Knowledge Based Solutions to Climate Change. The NASA “Sea-Ice” App Challenge"
Marine: Alex Thornton "Using Pacific Walrus Teeth to Study Patterns of Change in Alaska Food Web Dynamics"
Terrestrial: Anna Bobrik "Carbon Efflux and Soil Carbon Storage: Transect from Taiga to Tundra of Western Siberia
Social & Human: Yana Korneeva "The model of psychological safety of oil and gas shift workers in the Arctic"
The overall winner was Alex Thornton.
Congratulations to all!
