The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting is to present cutting edge research by early career researchers on biological, physical, and chemical aspects of polar systems. Abstract submissions that reach across disciplinary boundaries or that connect polar processes to global processes are strongly encouraged.
