Presented by Mark Twickler, Science Director for NICL, the U.S. National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) facility for storing, curating, and studying meteoric ice cores recovered from the glaciated regions of the world. NICL is managed by the U.S. Geological Survey through an Inter-Agency Agreement. NICL provides scientists with the capability to conduct examinations and measurements on ice cores, and it preserves the integrity of these ice cores in a long-term repository for future investigations.
The goal of this project is to assist the Arctic, Western Alaska, and Aleutian and Bering Sea Island Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) with synthesis and delivery of coastal resilience and adaptation information, ideas, tools, activities, and lessons learned across the coast of Alaska. This project aims to deliver existing coastal resilience and adaptation information to a primary audience of communities and resource managers in western Alaska.
Organizers announce the availability of a National Weather Service Alaska Climate Forecast Briefing webinar. The event will be held Friday, 19 June 2015 at 12:00-1:00 p.m. It can be attended on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus (IARC, Akasofu 407) or online (http://accap.adobeconnect.com/june_2015/event/event_info.html).
Do you lay awake at nights wondering what the upcoming season will be like? Want to place bets with friends and family on next month's weather? If so, good news:
The Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology & Geochemistry Gordon Research Conference will be held in conjunction with the Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology & Geochemistry Gordon Research Seminar. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Please refer to the Catchment Science: Interactions of Hydrology, Biology & Geochemistry GRS web page for more information.
The British Antarctic Survey, in cooperation with the Standing Scientific Group on Physical Sciences (part of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research), announce an invitation to the attend and participate in the 10th Antarctic Meteorological Observing, Modeling, and Forecasting Workshop (AMOMFW). The event will be held 17-19 June 2015 at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
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.
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.
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.
