I am just back from a permafrost workshop in Novosibirsk. Dr. Pavlov asked
me to circulate the following announcement. This particular meeting will
help launch the international permafrost monitoring network and bring
glaciologists and geocryologists together. The hosts require an initial
positive response from 10 foreigners so that translation and interperting
costs can be covered. In turn registration, costs may be reduced. Abstracts
will be due about February 1st.
