19 December 2014:
SCAR is always seeking new and innovative ways to communicate Antarctic science to everyone (scientists, managers, the public) with greater impact. At the SCAR Open Science Conference in Auckland, New Zealand in August this year, an Antarctic Science Communication Award was given for the most innovative presentation of Antarctic research results in any discipline. This was the first such award given at a SCAR OSC, and was a follow-on to the linkage of science and creative arts activities at the last SCAR OSC meeting held in Portland, Oregon in 2012.
The winner of the award was Molly Jia from the University of Tasmania explaining "Why a marine biologist cares about sea ice". A video of Molly's presentation is available to view by following the link on the Videos page of the Communications section.
