Arctic adventure: Florina Schalamon on the challenges facing female polar explorers

Field research at the end of the world. On a ship in the Arctic Ocean, in a remote station or in a tent in the far north, at minus 40 degrees. A real adventure. Florina Schalamon, a doctoral student at the University of Graz, has already had some of such experiences. She is currently investigating changes in Greenland's glaciers as a result of climate change. And she has another topic in her sights: the challenges that women in particular face during research stays in polar regions. In a recently published international study, Schalamon and her colleagues show why the adventure often holds extra hurdles for female scientists and how these can be overcome.
