This series of three workshops will include presentations and discussions of how coastal erosion on the North Slope of Alaska impacts local communities, potential responses to those impacts, related cultural and economic factors, and best practices for a long-term observing (LTO) network that could contribute to community planning and response. Anne Garland of Applied Research in Environmental Sciences Nonprofit, Inc., will be speaking on community-based monitoring of critical coastal infrastructure for the City of Barrow.

The Canadian Risk and Hazard Network holds an annual conference each year. This year the event is being held in Toronto, Canada. As part of this conference David Diabo (Assembly of First Nations) and Brenda Murphy (Wilfrid Laurier University) are running a series of five special sessions called: Promoting Aboriginal Resilience: Sharing Knowledge to Increase Disaster Risk Reduction. In the first session we are partnering with the Arctic Observing Network and Applied Research in Environmental Sciences Nonprofit, Inc. to offer a webinar of the first presentation (see details below).

When: 
Sun, 10/19/2014 to Wed, 10/22/2014
Where: 
Vancouver, British Columbia

”Reindeer herding and land use management – Nordic perspectives”
When: 
Mon, 10/20/2014 to Tue, 10/21/2014
Where: 
Rovaniemi, Finland

This seminar is second in the line of Nordic reindeer husbandry seminars organised in the framework of NJF (Nordic Association of Agricultural Sciences). The organiser of the seminar is a recently established Reindeer Husbandry Section at the NJF (http://www.njf.nu/site/redirect.asp?p=3926), promoting research on reindeer husbandry related issues in the Nordic countries.).

Program Title:

Arctic Research Opportunities
Arctic Natural Sciences; Arctic Social Sciences; Arctic System Science; Arctic Observing Network and Cyberinfrastructure
Synopsis of Program:

The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.

University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Alaska

This is an informal meeting of glaciologists that work in the northwestern U.S. and Canadian Northwest. Please e-mail Martin Truffer as soon as possible if you are planning to attend. Please include the following information: your name, your affiliation, whether you are planning to give a talk, whether you are planning to go to the permafrost tunnel, whether you are a student or not, and whether or not you would like floor space at someone's home (i.e., free accommodation). No abstracts need be submitted. The meeting will be held in the Geophysical Institute (Elvey Building) at UAF.

Satellite observations are a key element in an integrated and sustained climate observing system and have been critically important for monitoring and understanding the Earth’s climate system during the past several decades. The expected completion of the IPCC Fifth Assessment (AR5) in 2013-2014 makes it timely to discuss these achievements, to assess future opportunities and challenges with satellite derived climate information, and to provide guidance on future priorities.

When: 
Mon, 10/13/2014 to Thu, 10/16/2014
Where: 
Portland, Oregon

This workshop will bring together data collectors and modelers working on reconstructions of climate, ice, atmosphere, and ocean variability of the past 11,500 years.

When: 
Mon, 10/13/2014 to Wed, 10/15/2014
Where: 
Cambridge, United Kingdom

The aim of this three day workshop is to bring together experimental and theoretical scientists who work on the physics, chemistry or biology of the atmosphere-snow-sea ice system in order to discuss research status and challenges, which need to be addressed in the near future. An important objective is to foster new research collaborations and identify opportunities for international collaborative funding proposals. One expected workshop outcome will be a publicly available white paper outlining research priorities and pathways how to address them.
