American Polar Society 75th Anniversary

Save the date, 2-4 May 2012! The American Polar Society's 75th Anniversary Symposium, "The Polar Regions in the 21st Century," at The Explorers and Union Clubs in New York City.

Over one hundred years ago, the world turned its attention to the Polar Regions, wondering what was there. Today, the world is concerned about the environmental changes that are occurring in those same locations. Global economic affiliations and geopolitics in the 21st Century will be directly affected and perhaps driven by the climate and sea-ice changes tracked by contemporary polar science.

For seventy-five years, the American Polar Society has both documented and communicated polar activities to the interested world. The 2012 75th Anniversary Meeting and Symposium of the American Polar Society will bring together the current leaders in science, government, commerce, and diplomacy for a state-of-the-art forecast of the next seventy-five years in a world influenced more than ever before by the destiny of the Arctic and Antarctic.

Details to follow in December (see and January 2012"Polar Times."
