Issue 23: BEPSII Exchange Awards 2021

Issue 23 reports on the 2021 Biogeochemical Exchange Processes at Sea-Ice Interfaces (BEPSII) Exchange Awards.

In 2021, BEPSII launched its first exchange programme award to support early-career scientists in research collaborations. Motivated by a realisation that the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic had severely hobbled network-building for early-career scientists, the programme supported short visits between institutions to learn new techniques, develop joint experiments, and exchange knowledge. A call for proposals was issued through the BEPSII, SOLAS, SCAR, and CliC mailing lists, and the BEPSII steering committee selected the awardees. Funding from SOLAS was awarded to four scholars.
