Goal: This Summer School will provide a group of 30 Ph.D. students and junior scientists specializing in sea level research with a basis in knowledge, understanding and tools for the study of global and regional sea level change and its variability.
Scope: This Summer School will cover a wide range of physical processes contributing to sea level change. The main focus is on sea level observations by tide gauges, satellite missions, GPS and their use in scientific research.
Target: Advanced PhD candidates and early career scientists.
Goal: To mix students and lecturers with empirical/proxy and dynamical training within climate science and focus on understanding the basic principles and dynamics behind changes to the Greenland ice sheet in the past, present and future.
The Italian palaeobotanists and palynologists and the Department of Geoscience of the University of Padova and the Institute of Geosciences and Earth Resources - CNR - are sincerely pleased to invite all of you to Padova on August 26-31, 2014 for the forthcoming 9th EPPC.
Present day changes in climate and vegetation, as well as transformations in natural systems and landscape boosted by human forcing, urge the palaeobotanist and palynologist communities to pursue and investigate natural analogs in the geological record. These subjects will be among the topics of the Conference.
IARPC Collaboration Teams meet on a regular basis to implement the Arctic Research Plan: FY 2013-2017. Most meetings are open to the Arctic research community. Collaboration teams facilitate communication and collaboration between Federal agencies, the academic community, industry, non-governmental organizations, and State, local and tribal groups.
Contact Sara Bowden, bowden [at] arcus [dot] org, if you would like to join this meeting.
The Alaska Arctic Policy Commission (AAPC) has more important work to do in 2014. Together we will strive to gather public input and engage with Alaskan communities, state agencies, federal partners, and the international organizations working in the Arctic.
This is the second meeting in 2014 to focus on implementation and final recommendations.
3rd International Conference of GIS/RS in Hydrology, Water Resources and Environment
Sun, 08/24/2014 to Wed, 08/27/2014
The Remote Sensing and Hydrology Symposium is the official meeting of International Commission on Remote Sensing_(ICRS) of IAHS, and its first and second meetings were held in Santa Fe and Jackson Hole, USA. The first and second International Conference of GIS/RS in Hydrology, Water Resources and Environment were held in Three Gorges and Guangzhou, China. The above meetings were attended by large amount participants from all over the world, and selected papers were published in three IAHS red books.
During the SCAR open conference in Auckland (NZ) august 2014, ISMASS (Ice Sheet Mass Balance and Sea Level) proposes a short satellite meeting on "Modelling strategy for ice sheet mass balance projections"
This meeting will take place on tuesday 26 august 2014, 6-8 pm. Auckland Room 3.
This meeting will include a report by Ryan Walker on the outputs of the "Ice sheet MIP for CMIP6" workshop that will be held in July 2014.
Worldwide longest glacier mass balance series 1914-2014
Fri, 08/22/2014 to Sun, 08/24/2014
The longest climatological glacier mass balance series is 100 years old. Since 1914 the gain in winter snow, and the summer melt are measured twice a year on Claridenfirn, Swiss Alps. This unique and detailed mass balance series was initiated by Greenland pioneer Alfred de Quervain, among others, and continued for many year by Dr. Robert Billwiler, director of the Swiss Meteorological Office.
Symposium at ETH Zurich with scientific talks emphasizing the importance of the data series for different scientific studies (22 August). Speakers include:
Tradition for Tomorrow presents Nordic music and dance through performances, workshops, jam sessions, lectures and discussions. Each Nordic country will present its best and brightest in 4 days and nights of non stop music making, dancing, teaching and discussing.
Tradition for Tomorrow provides a singular opportunity to enjoy and examine Nordic traditional music and dance up-close and personal, discover similarities and differences between the Nordic neighbors, investigate multiculturalism and explore methods used to safeguard intangible heritage.
ARCUS is a nonprofit organization consisting of institutions organized and operated for educational, professional, or scientific purposes to advance arctic research and education.
