Presented by Dr. Mary Albert, Executive Director for IDPO, the Ice Drilling Program Office (IDPO) and Ice Drilling Design and Operations (IDDO) coordinate planning and provide ice drilling and ice coring support for NSF-funded ice core research. The webinar will include a quick overview of the IDPO-IDDO, including how IDPO-IDDO works with the science community for short and long-range (decadal) planning of science involving ice coring or drilling, and how IDPO-IDDO retrieves cores or create access holes in ice for U.S. scientists.
This symposium, to be held at the University of Washington, is intended for interdisciplinary scholars who will be prepared to discuss their research in the sub-arctic North Atlantic, sub-arctic North Pacific, and the Arctic Ocean that bears on the issue of how changes in sea ice are likely to affect these marine ecosystems. The symposium will also consider the people who depend upon these ecosystems and how they may be able to cope with the changes in the ecosystem goods and services that are coming.
On April 24, 2015 the United States began its chairmanship of the Arctic Council for a period of two years. The US agenda has three focus areas: economic and living conditions for Arctic communities; Arctic Ocean safety, security and stewardship; and addressing the impacts of climate change. To discuss these issues and other Arctic geopolitics themes with scholars, students and various stakeholders from the general public, US Special Representative for the Arctic, Admiral Robert J. Papp, Jr., USCG (Ret.). will be a keynote speaker. This event is hosted by CIRRICQ.
The InternationaI Congress on Circumpolar Health (ICCH) series are arranged every three years in Arctic countries or countries related to Arctic issues. First congress of the series was arranged in 1967, and it was previously hosted by Oulu in 1971.
The congress will focus on human health and well-being in the Arctic and northern areas. It is open for everyone interested in Arctic issues, especially scientists, researchers, health care professionals, policy analysts, government agency representatives and community leaders.
The courses are designed to provide students with the tools to effectively work with northern communities within their research and also gain a greater understanding of current issues in the north. Ideas will be exchanged from the different perspectives of advanced Masters students, PhD students and post-doc or early-career researchers from the various Arctic countries.
Organizers announce that a workshop of current and future changes of the Greenland and Arctic cryosphere will be held in Ilulissat, Greenland on 2-5 June 2015. Abstract submissions from the Arctic community are invited.
