The Arctic Frontiers Conference is underway in Tromsø, Norway and has had a number of interesting presentations. This conference is being broadcast live on the web. We suggest checking it out.
In particular, this afternoon [Tuesday, 20 january] we will be involved in a panel discussion on the needs of young researchers in polar science. It would be great if you could all join in watching this broadcast. If you cannot watch it live, it will be archived and you can watch it later.
