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!
The EarthScope National Office is excited to invite all who are interested to attend the EarthScope Alaska-Yukon Regional Workshop for Interpretive Professionals. This workshop will be the 10th in a series of EarthScope workshops that attempt to connect informal educators with place-based Earth science in North America. The upcoming workshop will have a focus on the geology of Alaska and Eastern Canada. It will also have a focus on the Great Alaskan Earthquake of 1964, including a field trip to view evidence of this quake. This workshop will be free to all who attend.
The Polar Research Board is pleased to announce that the Committee on Emerging Research Questions in the Arctic (http://dels.nas.edu/Study-In-Progress/Emerging-Research-Questions-Arctic/ DELS-PRB-12-01?bname=prb) will release their report "The Arctic in the Anthropocene: Emerging Research Questions" on Tuesday, April 29. The PDF report will be available for download at that time.
The aim of this seminar is to investigate the progress of development in the Canadian Arctic and the needs to support an expanded shipping season for cruise ships, resource extraction and the potential traffic using the North-west Passage as a shorter shipping route. The Seminar will consider the resources in place for Search and Rescue, Oil Pollution Response, Ice-breaking, Ice-navigator services, re-fuelling, ship repair and places of refuge.
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.
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.
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.
