The Marine Technology Society Journal invites submission of original manuscripts for a special issue that reflects the diversity in scientific and engineering topics focusing on polar research activities. We are soliciting papers for a high-caliber technical issue drawn from cutting edge polar research and science, with an emphasis on instrumentation and methodologies. This issue will serve as a forum for the community of polar scientists and engineers to share their experiences working in these extreme environments.

Papers focusing on topics and methods dealing with oceanography (physical, biological, chemical, and geological), limnology, ice dynamics, geology, atmospheric sciences, biology and biogeochemistry, and climate change investigations are welcome. Other relevant topics pertaining to such activities will also be considered. Novel approaches using observational techniques and instrumentation are of special interest including logistical activities necessary to get the job done. We support interaction between disciplines and discussions of the problems encountered while working in remote high latitude environments. Student papers are encouraged, as are shorter technical notes and commentary papers that address historical context and cross policy and technology issues facing polar regions today.

The Marine Technology Society Journal is the flagship publication of the Marine Technology Society. It publishes the highest caliber, peer-reviewed papers on subjects of interest to the society: marine technology, ocean science, marine policy and education. The Journal is dedicated to publishing timely special issues on emerging ocean community concerns.
