The 5th, and final, IGCP 588 conference will take place in coastal south-central Alaska in 2014 from the 4th to 10th May. It will be a weeklong combined conference-fieldtrip in the 50th anniversary year of the 1964 Mw9.2 Good Friday earthquake. We will visit sites which experienced co-seismic deformation during 1964, but also record late Holocene paleosiemiscity and add to an increasing knowledge of seismic and tsunami hazard along the Aleutian megathrust. We will travel west to east from Anchorage to the Copper River Delta, taking in key seismic, tsunami, glacial and geological sites.

When science questions are complex and large-scale, it requires a supercomputer to crunch the copious amounts of data. Discover how you and your department might take advantage of Arctic Region Supercomputing Center capabilities.

This symposium is designed to highlight various ways supercomputing can aid research through high performance computing, access to ARSC’s virtualized hosting environment, its user support and large data storage.

The Alaska Arctic Policy Commission (AAPC) has more important work to do in 2014. Together we will strive to gather public input and engage with Alaskan communities, state agencies, federal partners, and the international organizations working in the Arctic.

In order to meet our goals AAPC will convene three in-person meetings over the course of the year where we will focus on implementation and final recommendations.

Undulating Golden Sand Dunes as far as the eye can see. One hundred-degree days and 25-degree nights. And caribou. Welcome to Kobuk Valley National Park, where Alaska meets Lawrence of Arabia.

Nearly half a million caribou migrate yearly across the Great Kobuk Sand Dunes, their tracks crisscrossing dunes rising up to 100 feet high. But few people make the trek. No roads lead to the park: It’s consistently one of the 10 least-visited national parks.

Washington, D.C.

The annual AAAS Forum on Science and Technology Policy is the conference for people interested in public policy issues facing the science, engineering, and higher education communities. Since 1976, it has been the place where insiders go to learn what is happening and what is likely to happen in the coming year on the federal budget and the growing number of policy issues that affect researchers and their institutions. Come to the Forum, learn about the future of S&T policy, and meet the people who will shape it.

Session Topics include:

The EGU General Assembly 2014 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences. For the first time, in 2014, the EGU General Assembly will have a theme!
