Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


APECS is holding a #PolarWorld FrostByte competition, with winners announced during International Polar Week, from 18 - 24 September 2017! FrostBytes are short audio or video recordings used as a tool to help researchers easily share their latest findings with a broad audience. This year’s fall celebrations of the #PolarWorld and wider cryosphere will highlight how what happens in the poles affects the entire world as well as science, people living and working there, and international collaboration. We invite APECS members to send in short videos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. no later than September 15, 2017.
