Fifth Anniversary of the Austrian Polar Research Institute

The Austrian Polar Research Institute celebrated its fifth Anniversary on April 10th. Approximately 80 people joined the celebration in the Sky Lounge of the University of Vienna. The highlight of the evening was the keynote by glaciologist Jason Box who gave a thought-provocing talk on climate change and its effects on the Greenlandic ice sheet. The audience was given a glimpse into the history and the aims of the APRI, and a short film and poster exhibition provided insights into research activities currently being carried out by members of the institute. The party continued over some wine and snacks.
