Hi,
 
Could you please add the following to the Cryolist mailing list. The deadline for the field school being advertised is very soon, so it would be appreciated if can get this out as soon as possible.
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Graham Simpkins

I would like to bring to your attention the 2011 IPY Polar Field School in Svalbard, which will run for the third consecutive year from 20th June - 8th July 2011, and has become a true legacy of the IPY. The course will address environmental change in the Arctic and Antarctic through a series of lectures and field excursions. The program is interdisciplinary and includes geology, glaciology, meteorology, terrestrial/marine biology, permafrost and the human dimension in the polar regions, with particular focus on research conducted during IPY 2007-2009.

The course is hosted by the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) and is open to undergraduate and early graduate students. The registration fee is low, and some funding is available for travel support. This is a fantastic opportunity to be exposed, and to be a part of polar research in a high-Arctic environment.

The deadline for applications is the 1st April 2011.

More information, including how to apply, is available here (the movies are worth a look!):

The application deadline is fast approaching, so make sure you get applications in quickly...
