The AAEPF switched seats following the EPF and therefore the TAAF in their new premises in Paris 34 Boulevard de Sebastopol 75004. We thank them for giving us TAAF hospitality. This change, however, requires us adaptations in our operations. Despite their large size, these rooms do not allow us to consider how our traditional meetings in spring and autumn. We seek other solutions (use of leased or loaned rooms, with a combination of host organization …).
The website at the AAEPF (Friendly Association of French Polar Expeditions) is threefold: disseminate information about the life of the AAEPF and the ETH for you to participate.
Many studies have attempted to understand the phenomena of adaptation to life in the rainy season, the manifestations of maladjustment, the “wintering mental syndrome,” the “phenomenon of the third quarter.” This resulted in further work on the selection of wintering birds, wintering preparation, monitoring during the stay. The research, conducted at the level of shipments of different nations, have gradually helped to refine these fields for the benefit of the polar winters but also at the other extreme environments where staff live in small isolated groups and confined long-term.
The 16th edition of the Science Festival starts all over France Monday, October 8th and runs through Sunday, October 14. The International Polar Year was selected as the theme for the National Festival of Science 2007.
