The Arctic Circle is designed to increase participation in Arctic dialogue and strengthen the international focus on the future of the Arctic. Participating organizations will maintain their full institutional independence, identity and decision-making abilities. To this end, the Arctic Circle aims to create opportunities for everyone to attend different meetings, conduct their own networking and engage in one-on-one informal discussions. Organizations will be able to decide their own agendas and convene their own meetings.

The Italian palaeobotanists and palynologists and the Department of Geoscience of the University of Padova and the Institute of Geosciences and Earth Resources - CNR - are sincerely pleased to invite all of you to Padova on August 26-31, 2014 for the forthcoming 9th EPPC.

Present day changes in climate and vegetation, as well as transformations in natural systems and landscape boosted by human forcing, urge the palaeobotanist and palynologist communities to pursue and investigate natural analogs in the geological record. These subjects will be among the topics of the Conference.

"Sea-Level Change: Observations and Processes"
When: 
Sun, 08/24/2014 to Sun, 08/31/2014
Where: 
Delft, The Netherlands

Goal: This Summer School will provide a group of 30 Ph.D. students and junior scientists specializing in sea level research with a basis in knowledge, understanding and tools for the study of global and regional sea level change and its variability.

Scope: This Summer School will cover a wide range of physical processes contributing to sea level change. The main focus is on sea level observations by tide gauges, satellite missions, GPS and their use in scientific research.
