The Climate Change Science Institute (CCSI) and the Environmental Sciences Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory is organizing a workshop on " Next Generation of Methods and Techniques to Address Global Change Problems” as part of the Ecological Society of America Annual Meeting to be held in Sacramento, California from August 10-15, 2014. The workshop brings together a representative group of researchers to stimulate discussions on techniques and methods used in global change research.
The Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) program invites applications to a summer school session in Climate and Marine Ecosystems, entitled "ClimEco4." The session will be held 4-9 August 2014 at the East China Normal University in Shanghai, China.
This three-day workshop will provide an overview of geophysical methods for permafrost characterization (i.e., depth, thickness, spatial extent) and monitoring (i.e., time-lapse imaging). The course comprises lectures, data-analysis exercises, and field surveys. Participants will gain practical field experience using a variety of geophysical instruments, including ground penetrating radar, electrical resistivity, passive seismic, and electromagnetic induction.
This is the first announcement for the Workshop on Microstructure in Snow Microwave Radiative Transfer (MICROSNOW workshop), which will take place on 6-8 August 2014 in Reading, UK. This immediately follows the Intercomparison of Snow Grain Size Measurements Results Workshop, with the aim to link new measurements of snow microstructure with microwave scattering theory.
Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
We are happy to announce the first postgraduate course on glaciology with emphasis on the glaciers of the Southern Andes, by Instituto Argentino de Nivología, Glaciología y Ciencias Ambientales (IANIGLA- CONICET), that will be held in Mendoza, Argentina, 4-8 August, 2014.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 20 June 2014
The course will provide an introduction to the physics of glaciers, the glacier climate relationship with a focus on the different aspect of glaciers along the southern Andes.
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.
Three Fulbright U.S. Scholar grant opportunities in Arctic and polar science are available for the academic year 2015-2016.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens at the time of application. The application deadline for these competitions is 1 August 2014.
The Polar Geospatial Center and U-Spatial at the University of Minnesota are pleased to announce the 2014 University of Minnesota Summer Polar Boot Camp, a collaborative, 10-day geospatial workshop held from July 21st to August 1st on the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota.
Planning for a sustainable environment, in which human needs are met equitably without harm to the environment, and without sacrificing the ability of future generations to meet their needs requires a robust understanding of the integrated system of society, the natural world, and the alterations humans bring to the environment. Developing this robust understanding of the integrated system is a common interest among Belmont Forum members and is the focus of this Collaborative Research Action Call for proposals.
ICETECH 2014 is pleased to invite delegates, presenters, panelists, sponsors, and exhibitors to become part of this international conference and exhibition scheduled for July 28 to 31, 2014 at the Banff Conference Centre in the Canadian Rockies. The conference is organized by the Arctic Section of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME). All details are available through the conference website www.icetech14.org.
