We would like to draw your attention to the upcoming INTERNATIONAL SNOW SCIENCE WORKSHOP (ISSW) taking place in Banff from Sept. 29 to Oct. 3, 2014.

The ISSW is biennial conference that brings together researchers and a wide range of practitioners in snow science and avalanche safety from all over the world. The conference aims to facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and experiences within the wider community to improve avalanche safety practices and foster innovative snow and avalanche safety related research.

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.

​Matt Macander of ABR, Inc. will present "Extensive mapping of coastal change in Alaska by Landsat time-series analysis, 1972–2013". The landscape-scale effects of coastal storms on Alaska's Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska coasts includes coastal erosion, migration of spits and barrier islands, breaching of coastal lakes and lagoons, and inundation and salt-kill of vegetation. In areas experiencing moderate to large effects, changes can be mapped by analyzing trends in time series of Landsat imagery.

This one-day workshop brings together users and developers of sea-ice models to start a joint effort for improving sea-ice models. We will discuss the analysis of sea-ice biases in CMIP5 models, determine the most pressing needs for model development, identify the most helpful observational data, and compile a list of the most useful sea ice variables to be saved for CMIP6.

The Earth Living Skin 2014: Soil, Life and Climate Changes is the first of a Conference of the Soil System Sciences (SSS) Division of the European Geosciences Union. The Conference Scientific Program will focus on the fundamental role of soil systems, multiphase complex organisms which generates and sustain life onto the planet. Soils are the skin of earth and therefore represent magnificent intermediate substrates where most of the key environmental phenomena occur and where land, climate, living organisms and humans contribute to define typical patterns and characteristics.

Satellite meeting organized by Professor Daniel Feltham, Dr. Sheldon Bacon, Dr. Mark Brandon and Professor (Emeritus) Julian Hunt FRS

When: 
Mon, 09/22/2014 to Tue, 09/23/2014
Where: 
London, United Kingdom

This meeting explores the recent, rapid Arctic sea ice reduction. We will discuss the evidence for change, the inability of our climate models to predict these changes, the processes responsible for sea ice reduction and improved representation of these processes in climate models, and the impacts of sea ice change on local and global weather and climate. Scientific discussion is organized by Professor Daniel Feltham, Dr Sheldon Bacon, Dr Mark Brandon and Professor (Emeritus) Julian Hunt FRS.
