Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The Polar Impact Network is seeking to develop an inclusive 'survival' guide as a resource for conducting polar field work. This resource will be housed on the Polar Impact website and can be shared among lab groups, research institutions, and field stations involved in polar research across the world.

We have designed a survey ( to aid in the development of this resource that focuses on creating accessible, equitable, and inclusive field experiences, with a particular emphasis on the experiences and perceptions of polar field work from people who identify as racial or ethnic minorities.

Survey results will inform the structure and the content included in the final product. 

We ask that you forward this survey to students/colleagues/technicians/community leaders who may have a unique perspective to provide and thank you for any input that will help us better serve individuals affiliated with the wider polar community.
