The Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management (SCRiM) links an international, transdisciplinary team of climate scientists, economists, philosophers, statisticians, engineers, and policy analysts to answer the question, “What are sustainable, scientifically sound, technologically feasible, economically efficient, and ethically defensible climate risk management strategies?”
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.
The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of anywhere else on Earth. Recent monitoring indicates that this is having major impacts on the extent and distribution of ice masses, sea ice, permafrost, and Arctic ecosystems. Environmental change in this sensitive region has implications not only for the Arctic itself, but also for the global climate system. This session explores the current status of climate change in the Arctic and the approaches that are being used to manage these changes for local environments, communities, and industries.
Organizers of the 6th International Conference on Polar and Alpine Microbiology announce a call for early registration and abstract submission. The conference will be held 6-10 September 2015 in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic.
The Eleventh Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (CHAGS 11) will be taking place in Vienna from September 7-11, 2015. CHAGS 10 - held at Liverpool in June 2013 - has put hunter-gatherer studies back at the centre of scholarly debates and CHAGS 11 will make sure that the momentum is not being lost.
The ongoing global process of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) contributes significantly to present-day rates of sea level change, causes temporal changes in the Earth’s gravitational field, and is evident in the displacement of the Earth’s surface.
