Welcome to Sea Ice Field Course

Polar Sea Ice Field Course

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Polar Sea Ice Field Course runs from May 8-May 18, 2013. The course will introduce graduate students to the main field techniques used in sea-ice studies of an inter-disciplinary nature (geophysical, biological, geochemical). The course focuses on sea ice as an example of the close relationship between ocean, ice and biosphere processes in the polar regions and the critical role of the ice cover in the climate system. The students come from earth, environmental, marine and biological sciences and engineering backgrounds. The 10-day course will include instruction on the sea ice, field experiments, lab analysis, and more. Follow along to experience what it's like to be an arctic researcher and learn about some of the techniques involved in studying sea ice!
