CPOM Blog

Polar science is a rapidly evolving and exciting area of research, and one that captures a lot of public attention. We hope our blog will be both interesting and insightful, and provide a useful source of information and discussion about the cutting edge of polar science.  We will use it to provide details of our current activities, including field campaigns, meetings and conferences; discuss important results and papers; and provide timely analysis and commentary on other polar research.  Read on…..
