Upcoming Events

When: 
Fri, 09/26/2014
Where: 
Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom

This one-day workshop brings together users and developers of sea-ice models to start a joint effort for improving sea-ice models. We will discuss the analysis of sea-ice biases in CMIP5 models, determine the most pressing needs for model development, identify the most helpful observational data, and compile a list of the most useful sea ice variables to be saved for CMIP6.

When: 
Mon, 09/29/2014 to Fri, 10/03/2014
Where: 
Banff, Alberta, Canada

We would like to draw your attention to the upcoming INTERNATIONAL SNOW SCIENCE WORKSHOP (ISSW) taking place in Banff from Sept. 29 to Oct. 3, 2014.

The ISSW is biennial conference that brings together researchers and a wide range of practitioners in snow science and avalanche safety from all over the world. The conference aims to facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and experiences within the wider community to improve avalanche safety practices and foster innovative snow and avalanche safety related research.

The Institute of the North will host the 2014 Week of the Arctic. The 2014 Week of the Arctic is a platform for community leaders, subject matter experts and interested stakeholders to learn about the Arctic while contributing to a growing list of priorities and perspectives. Presentations, roundtable discussions and workshops will be held in Nome, Kotzebue and Barrow. Throughout the week, presentations and interviews will be captured on video for distribution through social media and web-based sharing.

Topics include:

When: 
Mon, 10/13/2014 to Fri, 10/17/2014
Where: 
Darmstadt, Germany

Satellite observations are a key element in an integrated and sustained climate observing system and have been critically important for monitoring and understanding the Earth’s climate system during the past several decades. The expected completion of the IPCC Fifth Assessment (AR5) in 2013-2014 makes it timely to discuss these achievements, to assess future opportunities and challenges with satellite derived climate information, and to provide guidance on future priorities.

When: 
Mon, 10/13/2014 to Wed, 10/15/2014
Where: 
Cambridge, United Kingdom

The aim of this three day workshop is to bring together experimental and theoretical scientists who work on the physics, chemistry or biology of the atmosphere-snow-sea ice system in order to discuss research status and challenges, which need to be addressed in the near future. An important objective is to foster new research collaborations and identify opportunities for international collaborative funding proposals. One expected workshop outcome will be a publicly available white paper outlining research priorities and pathways how to address them.

When: 
Mon, 10/13/2014 to Thu, 10/16/2014
Where: 
Portland, Oregon

This workshop will bring together data collectors and modelers working on reconstructions of climate, ice, atmosphere, and ocean variability of the past 11,500 years.
