The 7th AOS / ISAC Town Hall meeting will take place at the upcoming Arctic Science Summit Week 2015 in Toyama, Japan, and is open to everyone. We seek input from the Arctic community, researchers, managers and decision makers to participate in the guidance and development of a sustained, collaborative and international Arctic Observing Systems network (the focus of the biennial Arctic Observing Summit). Join us on Tuesday April 28th, 2015 (5:30 to 7 pm), Toyama International Conference Centre, room 205.
In July, 2012, the world witnessed a shocking event when widespread melting occurred over the surface of 97% of the Greenland Ice Sheet. According to ice core records, the last time such widespread melting occurred was in 1889. What caused such widespread melt? Was it just the warm temperatures, or is it a more complicated situation?
The purpose of this conference is to bring researchers, practitioners and policy makers to a world-wide platform to share research and discuss creative solutions related to global climate change impacts. The conference will emphasize the importance of global climate change impacts on agriculture while covering a range of topics related to climate change impacts on land and water resources.
Todd Brinkman, Assistant Professor of Wildlife Ecology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will present a webinar entitled "Climate-Driven Changes in Interactions Among Hunters, Wildlife, and Habitat".
