Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The number of research topics covered by Polar and Alpine research is vast and our members are involved in both natural and social sciences disciplines. The aim of this page is to provide someone new to the topic an overview of research areas involved in Polar and Alpine research and provide a snapshot of some disciplines that are being researched by APECS members.

We know that the topics you'll find in this page do not reflect the full breadth of Polar and Alpine research! If you are missing a discipline, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and send us a short description for it.
