Earth is changing faster than ever before in recorded human history, and this is especially apparent in the polar regions.  Polar science research is extremely important in helping us to understand global environmental issues, including climate change, melting permafrost, sea level rise, polar ecology, human-environment interactions, and more.  

At Springer Nature we have a wealth of publications in Polar Science and are continuously committed to providing the best publishing experience for our authors.
