On 1st July 2020, the EPB held a discussion meeting on COVID-19 disruption to polar fieldwork and responses by Members, chaired by Prof. Dame Jane Francis (NERC).
The meeting enabled Members to share information on:
- Experiences of disruption and responses from the previous Antarctic season and current Arctic season, including lessons learnt
- Information on planning for upcoming seasons for both Antarctic and Arctic
- The scope of activities in the coming season (scaleddown or minimal seasons)
Further information and a report from the meeting is available here.
