Six consecutive free public science lectures will be given by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists on Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. in the Westmark, Fairbanks, Gold Room. January 27th, Michael West will present "The Next Big Earthquake." This is an all ages event.
The symposium will feature a session on the Communicating Ocean Sciences, keynote addresses, poster sessions, and workshops. As in past years, the main content of the symposium is organized by large marine ecosystem. The 2015 schedule will be:
Tuesday, January 20 - Gulf of Alaska;
Wednesday, January 21 - Bering Sea; and
Thursday, January 22 - Arctic Ocean.
Details of the 2015 Alaska Marine Science Symposium program will be available by mid-November. Visit the symposium website for more information.
This workshop is designed to catalyze relationships, understandings, and collaborations between early career disciplinary researchers in the earth, atmospheric, ocean, and polar sciences and scientific discipline based education researchers (DBERs) in the geosciences. These relationships are critical for two reasons: (1) to address the foundational educational research needed on how people learn geoscience content and develop into expert geoscientists, and (2) to facilitate early career geoscientists in enhancing the broader impacts of their geoscience research.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announces that a funding opportunity is available within the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) field campaign.
NASA Terrestrial Ecology research addresses changes in Earth's carbon cycle and ecosystems using space-based observations in order to improve understanding of the structure and function of global terrestrial ecosystems, their interactions with the atmosphere and hydrosphere, and their role in the cycling of the major biogeochemical elements and water.
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.

The Division of Polar Programs (PLR) and the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) encourage proposals that will leverage the extensive National Science Foundation (NSF) investment in polar sciences and polar infrastructure for the benefit of science education in the U.S. and for the development of the next generation of polar scientists.
