This past week several of the terrestrial BAS scientists visited the Center for Permafrost (CENPERM) at the University of Copenhagen for a meeting on future collaborations in polar science. This collaboration includes studies both south (in the South Georgia upcoming 2017/2018 season) and north (Greenland and Svalbard in summer 2018), as well as the interesting prospects of combining the geo- and bio-sciences from CENPERM with the biological expertise at BAS. It also allowed for the final preparations for the upcoming trip to South Georgia - more about this trip in the near future! Many thanks to CENPERM for making this visit possible.
