Summary

Organizers invite registration for the Synoptic Arctic Survey (SAS) International Planning and Coordination Workshop.

The goals of the workshop include planning coordinated field sampling; international data sharing; education, including graduate student participation, post field-season data synthesis, public outreach, and involvement of Indigenous communities; and identifying additional measurements (e.g., atmospheric measurements) or approaches (e.g., modeling) that would contribute to accomplishing the goals of the SAS. The SAS is a ground-up effort and wide participation, including all professional levels of scientists, graduate students, and science managers across multiple disciplines, and Indigenous community members, in the planning is welcome.

The participation of early career scientists is particularly encouraged. Limited support is available for early career scientists, both from within the U.S. and abroad. For this workshop, early career scientists are defined as post-doctoral investigators and untenured, tenure-track equivalent individuals within five years of their initial appointment. To apply for support, individuals should send a curriculum vitae and a statement of how their research interests align with the SAS scientific questions to cashjian [at] whoi.edu by 15 April 2019.

To register, all interested participants should send the following information via email to sasworkshop2019 [at] gmail.com:

  • Name
  • Affiliation
  • Address
  • Country
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Position
  • Whether or not the attendee is an early career scientist, even if not applying for support

Additional logistic details will be disseminated to registered participants.

Registration deadline: 30 April 2019.

Early career travel support deadline (extended): 30 April 2019.
