Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Now is the height of the boreal summer and a busy time for field studies for our northern-inclined members. As much as field researchers would hope to the contrary, the rest of the world continues to race along, and we would like to share some of the activities and opportunities happening within APECS and within the broader polar research community.
