Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


I wanted to share a recent piece I wrote that I think will be of interest to APECS members. I am a corresponding writer for Geobites (, a science communication effort supported by AGU where short pieces are written to distill geoscience papers for a lay scientific audience. The piece I wrote for July, "Evidence of Pollution All the Way to the Poles" -, is on a paper by Sun et al., 2020 (Glacial Melt Inputs of Organophosphate Ester Flame Retardants to the Largest High Arctic Lake, ES&T).
