Summary

The Methane in a Changing Arctic International Conference will be hosted by the Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate (CAGE) at UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, Tromsø from 14-16 September 2022.

This conference aims to bring together scientists working on all aspects of Arctic methane and its role in the global carbon cycle. It will provide an interdisciplinary forum for discussion and exchange of knowledge relating to our current understanding of these complex systems and their response to and impact on, the rapid environmental and climatic changes that characterise the Arctic.

Themes

The conference will address themes including the formation, storage, cycling, transport, release and budgets of methane through the Arctic geo-, hydro-, cryo- and atmosphere since the onset of Northern Hemisphere glaciation and towards the future. There will be a strong emphasis on integration of these themes, and the organizers encourage all relevant contributions to the following topics:

  • Methane in the geosphere: subsurface thermogenic, (a-)biogenic and methane stores and sinks
  • Methane in the hydrosphere: methane processes and budgets in marine and lacustrine settings
  • Methane in the cryosphere: methane dynamics in ice sheets and permafrost
  • Methane in the atmosphere: methane source, sinks, and budget in the atmosphere
  • Microbial cycling of methane: the role of microbes in methane budgets
  • Past methane histories: past methane processes and budgets as analogues for future climate scenarios

Important Dates

  • 4 July 2022: Abstract submission extended deadline.
  • 14 August 2022: Registration deadline.
