The National Maritime Foundation (NMF) is India's premier maritime think-tank and undertakes research across the complete continuum of ocean related activities. The NMF brings forth for discussion maritime issues of importance to policy makers across the world and provides a common platform for discourse between maritime related institutions, organizations and disciplines. Towards this end, the Foundation organizes its' Annual Maritime Power Conference (AMPC) during February-March every year. The NMF invites the public to attend the event.

Six consecutive free public science lectures will be given by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. in the Westmark, Fairbanks, Gold Room. February 17, Eric Stevens will present "Weather Satellites and Alaska". This is an all ages event.
This course will provide training in the description and interpretation of quartz grains of sediments from a wide variety of environments, with particular focus on periglacial sediments. During the course the participants will be available two scanning electron microscopes (SEM).
The course includes practical exercises involving the analysis of samples in the SEM, lectures and discussion forums. Practical classes will be conducted in a maximum of 5 people groups.
The cryosphere forms an integral part of the climate system of the Earth. The cryosphere contains up to 75-80 % of the freshwater supply and in the Northern Hemisphere, seasonal snow cover extends to 49% of the total land surface in midwinter. The cryosphere affects the climate system through its influence on surface energy balance, moisture flux and atmospheric circulation over both seas and land surfaces. Monitoring of seasonal snow cover properties is therefore essential in understanding interactions and feedback mechanisms related to the cryosphere.
The Alaska Forum on the Environment (AFE) is Alaska's largest statewide gathering of environmental professionals from government agencies, non-profit and for-profit businesses, community leaders, Alaskan youth, conservationists, biologists and community elders. The diversity of attendees and comprehensive agenda sets this conference apart from any other.

The Symposium acts partly as final symposium of the inter-disciplinary TEMPS-project (The evolution of mountain permafrost in Switzerland) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The main objective of TEMPS and the above symposium is an improved understanding of the vulnerability of mountain regions to permafrost changes and to assess the current and future impacts on populated mountain regions such as the European Alps.
ARCUS is a nonprofit organization consisting of institutions organized and operated for educational, professional, or scientific purposes to advance arctic research and education.
