Jenny Baeseman appointed SCAR Executive Director

Dr Jenny Baeseman has just been hired as the new Executive Director of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR). Baeseman has been the Executive Director of the WCRP Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) project since 2012 and previous to that was the Founding Director of the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS).
