Our mission is to facilitate cryosphere science outreach. Cryo Connect brings together those with a professional interest in our climate system, like scientists, journalists, policy makers and stake holders. Hundreds of cryosphere experts around the globe are eager to share their insights on how the cryosphere changes over time, and what this means to the planet and its inhabitants.
The cryosphere includes all areas of our planet where water exists in its frozen state: glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets, sea ice, lake ice and river ice, but also seasonal snow and frozen ground such as permafrost.
How does it work? Are you seeking information on the cryosphere, or are you an expert looking to share your findings with a wider audience? We provide the means to connect:
- Scientists can proactively share findings with information seekers that sign up to receive science notifications, or simply tweet using the @CryoConnect Twitter handle.
- When information seekers place a connection request, Cryo Connect provides a tailored list of experts. Cryosphere experts that sign up at Cryo Connect provide keywords to specify their areas of expertise and regions of interest.
Who are we? Cryo Connect is a non-profit organisation managed by a team of scientists, safeguarding the best interest of the community members. Our sole aim is to facilitate science outreach.
These are our Cryo Connect partners. Please send us a message if your organisation/institution is interested in becoming a Cryo Connect partner or sponsor in support of cryosphere science outreach.
