During the SCAR open conference in Auckland (NZ) august 2014, ISMASS (Ice Sheet Mass Balance and Sea Level) proposes a short satellite meeting on "Modelling strategy for ice sheet mass balance projections"
This meeting will take place on tuesday 26 august 2014, 6-8 pm. Auckland Room 3.
This meeting will include a report by Ryan Walker on the outputs of the "Ice sheet MIP for CMIP6" workshop that will be held in July 2014.
Worldwide longest glacier mass balance series 1914-2014
Fri, 08/22/2014 to Sun, 08/24/2014
The longest climatological glacier mass balance series is 100 years old. Since 1914 the gain in winter snow, and the summer melt are measured twice a year on Claridenfirn, Swiss Alps. This unique and detailed mass balance series was initiated by Greenland pioneer Alfred de Quervain, among others, and continued for many year by Dr. Robert Billwiler, director of the Swiss Meteorological Office.
Symposium at ETH Zurich with scientific talks emphasizing the importance of the data series for different scientific studies (22 August). Speakers include:
Tradition for Tomorrow presents Nordic music and dance through performances, workshops, jam sessions, lectures and discussions. Each Nordic country will present its best and brightest in 4 days and nights of non stop music making, dancing, teaching and discussing.
Tradition for Tomorrow provides a singular opportunity to enjoy and examine Nordic traditional music and dance up-close and personal, discover similarities and differences between the Nordic neighbors, investigate multiculturalism and explore methods used to safeguard intangible heritage.
The International Workshop on Ice Caves (IWIC) is a series of workshops devoted entirely to ice cave research. IWIC is the only conference focused on state-of-the-art in ice cave research, where international experts discuss ongoing research efforts and promote global cooperation in ice cave science and management. These meetings have happened every year since 2004, and all in Europe. The next IWIC, IWIC-VI, will be held next year on 17-22 August 2014 in Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA!
The Antarctic Near-Shore and Terrestrial Observing System (ANTOS) is proposed as a Life Sciences Expert Group which will survey the impact of change on Antarctic life. A workshop aimed at developing an implementation framework for ANTOS will be held in Auckland, New Zealand on Friday, 22 August 2014, immediately prior to the start of the XXXIII SCAR meetings.
This ground-breaking conference will bring together the entire weather science and user communities for the first time to review the state-of-the-art and map out the scientific frontiers for the next decade and more. We encourage you to come to the conference in Montreal to take part and contribute to what promises to be a once in a generation event.
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 objectives of the Symposium is to exchange knowledge in the fields of biodiversity, peat accumulation and paludification, protection of the biodiversity and of biospheric functions of mires, ecological monitoring of mire ecosystems, the role of peatlands in the global carbon cycle, and evaluation of the anthropogenic activities on the functioning of mire ecosystems and furthermore on the introduction of the contemporary technologies of the wise use of natural resources, modeling of peat accumulation in the global climate change.
The course is intended to provide glaciology graduate students with a comprehensive overview of the physics of glaciers and current research frontiers in glaciology. Key topics include, but are not limited to:
You are cordially invited to the 22nd IAHR International Symposium on Ice, which will be held from 11-15 August 2014 in Singapore.
The aim of the Symposium is the development of international collaboration, exchange of experience between scientists of different countries in research of ice processes, and determination of the most significant tasks for investigations.
The Symposium will cover all areas of ice research, including river, lake, and sea ice, as well as glacial and hydrological processes such as:
