1. Call for Posters
Arctic Observing Summit 2013
30 April - 2 May 2013
Vancouver, Canada

Organizers of the Arctic Observing Summit 2013 (AOS 2013) announce a
call for posters that highlight recent results in arctic research and
activities and undertakings relevant to arctic observing. The summit
will be held 30 April - 2 May 2013 at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver,
Canada.

The key outcome of the AOS will be an assessment of the fit between
stakeholder-needs, science objectives, and observing networks; and a
variety of products to improve this. The foundation for the AOS is
community input. To capture and integrate input from a broad range of
participants the AOS includes community white papers, which are now
available for public comment. Additionally, an online survey has been
created for wide input.

Submission deadline: Monday, 8 April 2013.

To comment on white papers, complete the community questionnaire,
register for the summit, make hotel reservations, or for further
information about the AOS 2013, please go to:

2. Call for Papers
Heritage and Change in the Arctic
11-14 October 2013
Nuuk, Greenland

An interdisciplinary conference of the humanities and social sciences
entitled 'Heritage and Change in the Arctic' announces a call for
papers. The conference will be convened 11-14 October 2013 at the
University of Greenland in Nuuk, Greenland.

Making a new and unique contribution to arctic research and policy by
bringing together social and human sciences scholars from northern
Canada, Greenland, and the Nordic countries, this two-day conference
relates the historical origins of key socio-environmental challenges
facing arctic communities to both contemporary responses and potential
future alternatives. A key focus will be the political, economic, and
cultural investments of arctic states and peoples in ecological and
cultural sustainability. The conference will be a rare opportunity to
discuss northern issues as they cross the Atlantic. Subthemes include:

- Natural resources and sustainable development
- National identities and centre-periphery relations
- Indigenous identity and heritage landscapes
- Youth, tradition, and community responses to change

Proposals on any relevant topic are welcome, and should be submitted via
email (contact-circla@cgs.aau.dk). Submissions should include a 200-word
abstract and a brief statement of the author's academic affiliation.

Arctic' link at: http://www.arctic.aau.dk.

4. Lecture Available
Melting Ice: What is happening to arctic sea ice and
what does it mean for us?
20 March 2013 at 5:30 p.m. EST
Washington, D.C.

The National Research Council's Ocean Studies Board invites the public
to attend the Fourteenth Annual Roger Revelle Commemorative Lecture. It
will be held 20 March 2013 at 5:30 p.m. EST in the Baird Auditorium at
the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History (entrance at 10th
Street and Constitution Avenue).

The Revelle Lecture was created by the Ocean Studies Board in honor of
Dr. Revelle's contributions to the ocean sciences and his dedication to
making scientific knowledge available to policymakers. This year's
lecture, "Melting Ice: What is happening to arctic sea ice and what does
it mean for us?" will explore the impacts of recent decreases in arctic
summer sea ice and the ways in which these decreases may already be
affecting the larger climate system through a variety of physical,
dynamical, and ecological processes. It will be presented by Dr. John
Walsh, Chief Scientist of the International Arctic Research Center at
the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

For additional information and to preregister for the event, please go

required but is requested for planning purposes.
