Integrated Science to Inform Antarctic and Southern Ocean Conservation (Ant-ICON)

We are pleased to announce the recipients of the inaugural SCAR Ant-ICON | SC-ATS science-policy fellowship programme for early-mid career researchers (EMCRs). The fellowship programme will fund two fellows in 2023: one to participate in the CEP/ATCM meetings in Helsinki, Finland from 29 May 2023 - 8 June 2023, and one to participate in the SC-CAMLR/CCAMLR meetings in Hobart, TAS, Australia in 16 - 27 October 2023.

The 2023 Fellows are:

Lucia ZieglerLucia Ziegler from Centro Universitario Regional del Este, Universidad de la República, Uruguay, who will attend the CEP/ATCM meetings in Helsinki.
Her project is entitled:
"Assessment of soundscape characteristics and the incidence of anthropogenic noise on the Antarctic terrestrial ecosystems."
Kirsten Steinke
 Kirsten Steinke from Oregon State University, United States, who will attend the SC-CAMLR/CCAMLR meetings in Hobart, TAS, Australia.
Her project is entitled:
"How climate and environmental variability at the northern Antarctic Peninsula correspond with changes in Antarctic krill reproductive development and spawning."
Congratulations, Lucia and Kirsten!
The aim of the fellowship programme is to provide the opportunity for EMCRs to gain experience in the science-policy interface from participating in Antarctic policy forums through the preparation and potential submission of a science/policy paper based on their research, in collaboration with SC-ATS
