Organizers announce the Forum for Arctic Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS) 2016 School and Workshop. FAMOS is an international forum for Arctic Marine Modelers (liquid ocean + sea ice, physical/biogeochemical) and those scientists who are interested in working with these modelers (e.g., observationalists, hydrologists, meteorologists, geologists, glaciologists, biologists).

Organizers are now welcoming talk/poster abstracts for the workshop, and are seeking applications from students, postdocs, and more senior scientists who are new to the field for the FAMOS School to be held on the first day of the meeting.

Travel support for the school is available, usually granted to those who have not previously attended. This year, school lectures will be given by early career scientists on topics of sea ice prediction, ocean mixing, ocean circulation, snow/melt ponds/floes, and primary productivity. The workshop will have a (not exclusive) emphasis on small-scale processes and modeling.
