Tweets from day 3 of Strategic Science in Antarctica

@APECSOceania was a little quiet on the Twittersphere for day 3. We are following a number of organizations involved with the conference, so if you're looking for a summary of topics covered then this blog entry is for you.  Today was the last day of the conference but the workshops are still to come over Thursday and Friday.  Here's a selection of tweets from today (older to newer):
