Polar Hour


For the 2020-2021 year, the Polar Center is changing the format of the Polar Seminar! We are hosting classic seminar-style talks interspersed with less formal discussions to foster connections and collaboration across disciplines of polar science.

To receive regular announcements and Zoom registration links, please sign up to the Polar listserv.
