In celebration of its 10th Anniversary, the Alaska Ocean Observing System and Alaska Geographic are co-hosting a Coast & Ocean Film Festival at the Bear Tooth on Saturday, March 28th. The festival will showcase fantastic short films that highlight an array of ocean-related topics. This event promotes ocean conservation, raises awareness about issues facing marine habitats, and celebrates Alaska's unique coast and ocean environments.
The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Arctic Section is supporting a 'Planning Workshop on joint Arctic Research using the Swedish Class 1A Icebreaker Oden.' This workshop is held in collaboration with the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat (SPRS) and the Swedish Research Council (Formas and VR). The US delegation will be led by Drs. Patricia Matrai (Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences) and Peter Minnett (RSMAS, U. Miami), as workshop co-organizers with Dr. Caroline Leck (Stockholm U.).
Microstructural evolution during HT deformation: advances in the characterization techniques and consequences to physical properties
Mon, 03/30/2015 to Fri, 04/03/2015
This meeting, organized in the framework of the ESF project MicroDIce, aims to present a multi-scale view of our present understanding of the processes controlling plasticity and recrystallization at high temperature in geomaterials (ice and rocks). Recent advances in electron microscopy (e.g. HR-SEM-EBSD) allow characterization of the microstructure in complex multi-phase materials from the nanometre to the centimetre scale.
Polar Educators International is pleased to announce the upcoming workshop "Education Meets Science" in Hannover, Germany 1-4 April 2015. Educators, Scientists and Interested People from around the world are invited to continue the collaboration of previous conferences (Oslo 2010, Montreal 2012, and Coimbra 2013).
A Registration Fee of 50 Euros will be paid at the conference.
This workshop will bring together anyone interested in the predictability of polar sea-ice on seasonal to inter-annual timescales. Contributions will include presentations on understanding causes of inter-annual polar climate variability, as well as idealized predictability studies, and operational forecasts. This workshop is a follow-up to the Sea Ice Prediction Workshop held in Boulder in April 2014. A call for abstracts will appear in January.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs has released a Notice of Funding Availability announcement for proposals to provide for Tribal Climate Adaptation Planning & Ocean/Coastal Management Planning. There is a total of $8M available nation-wide and proposals for up to $250,000.00 are due April 24th.
The General Assembly 2015 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) is held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 12 – 17 April 2015. The assembly is open to the scientists of all nations.
The 4th annual Warming Arctic International Inquiry at the Fletcher School comes at a time when the United States assumes the chairmanship of the Arctic Council. With this honor comes the responsibility to protect the Arctic and its environment as it continues to warm at a much faster rate than the rest of the globe, opening up land, waters and treasures to exploitation.
Glaciologists of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution would like to invite you to the first annual New England Glaciology Meeting: NEGM 2015! The meeting will be held on April 16th and 17th at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
Building on the long and successful tradition of NWGM and MGM, NEGM is an informal, small meeting (~30-50 people), where everyone in attendance is encouraged to give an oral presentation on recent results or work in progress. NEGM is a great conference for students!
ARCTIC STATES, a three-day symposium at the University of Virginia School of Architecture, brings together an international consortium of leading designers and colleagues from allied disciplines to posit the role of design in the rapidly transforming region, and generate critical discussions by sharing recent work that will trace, critique and speculate on its past, present, and future. This event is free and open to the public.
