Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Changing sea ice, melting glaciers, rising sea level, coastal erosion, extreme weather events, impacts of food and drinking water security, increased development of natural and energy resources, and changes in international shipping and trade routes – these are just some of the noticeable examples of how changes influencing the Arctic, the Antarctic, and the cryosphere impact the lives of every single person on Earth! As the climate changes, the need to predict impacts and find solutions is more important than ever before.
