The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) announces a 21-day summer course entitled "Arctic Alaska Environmental Change." Open to undergraduate and graduate students interested in Arctic environmental change, the course will be held 10-30 June 2015.
This symposium, to be held at the University of Washington, is intended for interdisciplinary scholars who will be prepared to discuss their research in the sub-arctic North Atlantic, sub-arctic North Pacific, and the Arctic Ocean that bears on the issue of how changes in sea ice are likely to affect these marine ecosystems. The symposium will also consider the people who depend upon these ecosystems and how they may be able to cope with the changes in the ecosystem goods and services that are coming.
The British Antarctic Survey, in cooperation with the Standing Scientific Group on Physical Sciences (part of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research), announce an invitation to the attend and participate in the 10th Antarctic Meteorological Observing, Modeling, and Forecasting Workshop (AMOMFW). The event will be held 17-19 June 2015 at the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
ISOPE-2015 Technical Program Committee members from 35 countries plan to organize some 150 technical and keynote sessions of peer-reviewed papers in cooperation with 30 global cooperating organizations. Delegates from some 50 countries will participate. Since 1990, ISOPE has held 54 successful international conferences and symposia. Topics cover ocean and Arctic-related technologies. For details, find call for papers on www.isope.org.
The next (26th) Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) General Assembly will be held in Prague from the 22nd of June to the 2nd of July, 2015. Registration and abstract submission are now open! The deadline for grant applications is January 15th, 2015, and the abstract submission deadline is January 31st, 2015.
This will be an important meeting for the cryospheric sciences, with more than 20 symposia led by The International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS) http://www.cryosphericsciences.org.
The XXI Conference on Groundwater in Siberia and Far East will be held in Yakutsk, Russia from 22-26 June 2015. Organizers invite those interested in attending the conference to pre-register before 31 December 2014.
Katrina E. Bennett from Los Alamos National Laboratory will present "Changing extreme streamflow patterns in boreal forest watersheds of Alaska" on Tuesday, 23 June at 10:00 am AKDT.
The Interior discontinuous permafrost zone of the boreal subarctic represents one of the largest ecosystems on earth and is vastly understudied with respect to changing hydrologic extreme events. The first part of this presentation will focus on recent research results for snowmelt and glacially dominated Interior Alaska river basins for the past 50/60 years (1954/64-2013).
The Snow and Ice Research Group (SIRG) is an association of researchers interested in cryospheric observations and processes. SIRG forms the New Zealand branch of the International Glaciological Society and the annual workshop provides an opportunity for the community to meet and discuss their common interests. The workshop encompasses the wide range of cryospheric research being undertaken in New Zealand, Antarctica, and beyond. Participants include students and academics from universities and crown research institutes.
