The Future of Polar Governance: Knowledge, Laws, Regimes, and Resources
The British Antarctic Survey, working with the University of Leeds and Royal Holloway, University of London, will be hosting a workshop on the future of polar governance. The timing of the conference is not coincidental – sixty years ago, the International Geophysical Year (1957-58) initiated the promise of global scientific and political co-operation in the polar regions and their connection to planet Earth. The International Polar Year (2007-8) followed up on that promissory note.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present. It stimulates the exchange of new data and cutting edge ideas among young fellows.
The Collaborative Innovation Centre for Territorial Sovereignty and Maritime Rights (CICTSMR), the Research Institute of Environmental Law (RIEL), Wuhan University, China and the School of Law, University of New England, Australia are pleased to announce the call for papers for the “Conservation of Marine Living Resources in the Polar Regions: Science, Politics and Law” Conference.
Polar Climate and Sea Level: Past, Present, and Future

University of Anchorage, Edward and Cathryn Rasmuson Hall
On March 24, the University of Alaska Anchorage and Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. will hold the first ever Anchorage Arctic Research Day. This event will bring together the rich Arctic research community within the municipality of Anchorage to share information about the diversity of research and creative activity being conducted by researchers from a broad array of organizations, and foster new connections and collaborations.
ESA will hold the first Cryosat North American Science Meeting. Co-sponsored by a number of international institutions, the meeting is open to all worldwide interested CryoSat stakeholders and data users. There will be no conference fee but the participants are required to finance their own travel and accommodation.
The meeting will provide a unique and timely forum for scientists and end-users of CryoSat data to share the state-of-the-art in research and applications, review mission achievements and prepare for the continued use of the CryoSat mission in the future.
Arctic and Sub-Arctic Ocean Observations: Where do we go?
Mon, 03/20/2017 to Wed, 03/22/2017
We are grateful to the IOPAN, the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, to host the workshop.
New Arctic and sub-Arctic observational programs are upcoming, enhancing ongoing activities. These focus on an Arctic observing system (e.g. INTAROS, AOS), high-latitude/mid-latitude interaction (e.g. APPLICATE, BLUE ACTION), prediction capabilities (e.g. YOPP, SIPN) or the drifting observatory MOSAIC, to name a few. At the same time we have seen the cessation of a number of long-term observational programs in the Arctic and sub-Arctic.
