This workshop will be held in Cambridge on Sunday afternoon, 16 August 2015, right before the IGS meeting. The precise location and time will be announced soon.
Ice‐ocean interactions are considered to lie at the basis of current and future ice mass loss of the Antarctic ice sheet. One of the feedback mechanisms that can be generated through such ice‐ocean interaction is the so‐called marine ice sheet instability, which generates at present the most important uncertainty for the projections of sea level in the context of global warming.
The International Glaciological Society (IGS) will hold an International Symposium on 'Contemporary ice-sheet dynamics: ocean interaction, meltwater and non-linear effects' in 2015, in Cambridge, UK, from 16–21 August 2015.
The Polar Geospatial Center and the University of Minnesota are pleased to announce the 2015 University of Minnesota Summer Polar Boot Camp, an intensive, five-day geospatial workshop held from August 17th to 21st on the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota.
The Summer Polar Boot Camp focuses on applications of commercial satellite imagery for polar science and operations. A proficiency with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a prerequisite for admission to the workshop. See a full summary of topics and courses on the Polar Boot Camp website.
We invite people to participate in the second international conference for "Polar Climate and Environmental Change in the Last Millennium", to be held in Torun, Poland, August 24-26, 2015. The aim of the conference is to present scientific achievements, detect gaps in the field of the historical climatology of the area of polar regions based on early meteorological observations, history, dendroclimatology, paleolimnology, geophysics, geomorphology and other sources.
An increasingly ice-diminished environment in the Arctic is accelerating interest and potential for new maritime trade routes, merchant transportation, and resource development such as mining, oil & gas exploration, tourism and fishing. The IMO and the Arctic Council have been focused on ‘Safe Arctic Shipping’ through the recently adopted Polar Code and as a key theme among the Arctic Council’s priorities. The World Maritime University plays a key role in conducting research on, and building capacity in, Arctic issues and governance.
ATTENTION RESEARCHERS IN THE NOME REGION: The US Arctic Research Commission (Fran Ulmer, Chair) invites you to share your Arctic research activities and/or suggestions on research when the Commission meets in Nome, Alaska, August 25-26, 2015. There will be limited opportunities for formal presentations to the Commission, as well as a community comment period.
We are pleased to announce the 33rd International Conference on Alpine Meteorology (ICAM). It will take place from 31 August to 04 September 2015 in Innsbruck, a scenic town located in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Papers on all aspects of mountain weather and climate are welcome, including but not limited to:
The Department of Geography at Durham University is delighted to be hosting the British Branch meeting of the International Glaciological Society on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd September, 2015.
As in previous meetings, the conference will include oral and poster presentations, spread over two days, on a wide range of snow and ice research. In the spirit of previous meetings, registration and accommodation costs will be kept to a minimum and delegates from overseas are very much welcome to attend.
