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.
We would like to draw your attention to the XII International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences, a SCAR initiative, to be held in Goa during 13-17 July 2015. We are inviting abstracts for session 16: Interactions between cryosphere, atmosphere and oceans in coastal Antarctica. The abstract submission is now open (www.isaes2015goa.in). This session aims to integrate latest results on past, current and future changes in coastal Antarctica from a range of disciplines to identify knowledge gaps and suggest future priorities.
This third workshop of the PALeo constraints on SEA level rise 2 (PALSEA2) working group builds upon and complements previous workshops by focussing on the integration of data and models to better understand and constrain past changes in sea level, the cryosphere and climate with a primary aim to produce more accurate projections of future changes in ice extent and sea level. As in previous PALSEA2 workshops, a focus will be on data and modeling for past warm periods when ice extent was similar to or less than that at present (e.g.
Quaternary Perspectives on Climate Change, Natural Hazards and Civilization
Mon, 07/27/2015 to Sun, 08/02/2015
Once every four years, Quaternary researchers from all over the world meet at the INQUA Congress to exchange the latest research results and develop agendas for the years to come. In 2015, the Congress will take place in Nagoya, Japan. The knowledge gained from Quaternary research, particularly from past records of unusual events and abrupt changes, is invaluable for understanding nature and taking appropriate actions to mitigate natural risks.
The application period for the Summer School on Mass Balance Measurements and Analysis is now open. This course will be held in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, from 2-8 August 2015 with theoretical lectures taking place at the Central Asian Institute for Applied Geosciences and practical training in field work and safety aspects on nearby Golubin Glacier in the Ala Archa Range.
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.
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.
