In order to engage with Arctic scientists and knowledge holders on multiple levels, the ASM3 organizers plan to engage researchers at the several science meetings throughout 2020. These meetings will give the research community an opportunity to shape and develop the science-to-policy process resulting in the Arctic Science Ministerial Joint Statement to be signed in Tokyo.
Speaking: Rick Thoman, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy (ACCAP)
University of Alaska Fairbanks, or online: 12:00-1:00 pm AKST, 4:00-5:00 pm EST
The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center’s forecast for December and the winter season. Join the gathering online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
Online: 7:00-10:00 am AKST, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm EST
This conference discusses teaching and learning through various perspectives and experiences with the aim of creating a more sustainable North. We aim to explore in depth the provision of education across the North, focusing on challenges and innovations in meeting the needs of diverse learners in remote and rapidly changing contexts.
The conference is open for all to participate, and there is no registration fee. The conference will be held in Zoom.
The Synoptic Arctic Survey (SAS) completed four cruises this fall in the Western Arctic Ocean, where the latest one with R/V Mirai just arrived back in Shimizu (Japan) from the Canada Basin.
On this occasion, we would like to invite you to join the SAS November Webinar where representatives from each cruise will report back from the expeditions. Much changed because of the pandemic, but most cruises still carried out their sampling program and collected physical, chemical, and biological measurements that will become part of SAS’s pan-arctic dataset.
The second Arctic Resilience Forum will be held online as a series of ten weekly webinars launching on October 7, 2020. Each session touches on a specific aspect of Arctic resilience, ranging from food security and Indigenous youth leadership, to gender, energy and connectivity. The forum seeks to actively engage participants in conversations about how to build resilience of Arctic communities and ecosystems. It offers the opportunity to discuss concrete best practices and experiences from the Council and the broader community of circumpolar experts and knowledge holders.

The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) in cooperation with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) are excited to announce the IASC Fellowship Program 2021.
The IASC Fellowship Program is meant to engage early career scientists in the work of the IASC Working Groups (WGs): Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social & Human, and Terrestrial. This year, we will offer 6 IASC fellowships:
