This webinar will provide an update on the activity within discussion groups on www.arctichub.net and further opportunities to continue discussions relevant to long-term observing management and governance. A recap of recommendations received from the broad observing-minded community will be presented.The webinar will be available through Webex (details available at www.arctichub.net).
"What will Antarctica and the Southern Ocean look like in 2065?"
Queenstown, New Zealand
Organizers announce the first Martha T. Muse Fellows Colloquium, entitled "Beyond the Horizon - Antarctica and the Southern Ocean 2065." The colloquium will be held 22 April 2014 in Queenstown, New Zealand.

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 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 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.
