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.
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.
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 Institute of the North will host the 2014 Week of the Arctic. The 2014 Week of the Arctic is a platform for community leaders, subject matter experts and interested stakeholders to learn about the Arctic while contributing to a growing list of priorities and perspectives. Presentations, roundtable discussions and workshops will be held in Nome, Kotzebue and Barrow. Throughout the week, presentations and interviews will be captured on video for distribution through social media and web-based sharing.
The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces an open webinar focused on post-season analysis and discussion of the 2014 Sea Ice Outlook (SIO). The SIO produces reports in June, July, and August that synthesize a variety of predictions and perspectives on the arctic sea ice minimum. More information about SIO, including this year's reports, is available at: http://www.arcus.org/sipn/sea-ice-outlook.
We are pleased to invite you to Berlin, Germany to participate in the international conference “Our Climate – Our Future, Regional perspectives on a global challenge” which will be held from 6–9 October, 2014 and in particular to consider submitting an abstract to our Session2: Sea level changes from global to regional and local scales and to Session 3: Arctic Change. Internationally outstanding scientists will present their keynotes during the conference, namely Prof. Dr. Jason Box (Kopenhagen, Denmark) for Session 2 and Prof. Dr. Larry Hinzman (Fairbanks, Alaska) for Session 3.
Dr. Phillip Loring, Assistant Professor, School of Environment and Sustainability, University of Saskatchewan will give a seminar for the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) on "Making progress on Food Security in the North American North: Building on 15 Years of Research".
Organizers of a workshop on biomass burning and effects of ammonium and ozone deposition announce an extended deadline for abstract submissions. The workshop will convene 1-3 October 2014 in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Extended abstract submission deadline: 1 May 2014.
