2020 PolarTREC Expeditions Postponed

Flags in Antarctica.

COVID-19 has had far-reaching impacts. In response to this uncertainty and for the safety of the teams and the communities of which they would visit, the deployment of all the 2020 PolarTREC educators to both the Arctic and Antarctica has been postponed until 2021. We will continue working with all the teams over the next year and in preparation for 2021. In the meantime, we'll be highlighting past expeditions and continuing to host science-focused seminars.
