Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA’s Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world. For decades now Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change.
Washington, D.C. and Online: 11:00am - 12:30pm EDT
The United States Arctic's extreme operating environment poses unique challenges to land and coastal-based infrastructure development, with receding sea ice, coastal erosion, and thawing permafrost, among other effects of climate change, complicating efforts. This panel will discuss these challenges and how they affect projections of future maritime traffic, existing development activities, and the emerging vision of the Alaska of tomorrow.
The workshop goal is to bring together a diverse group of researchers and graduate students that are using or would like to use ice core data available from the Arctic Data Center to produce the future generation of paleoclimate data sets. The goal is to learn about common research workflows that the community is using and to test the applicability of selected Arctic data sets and software tools to build the next generation of digital paleoclimate data products and reconstructions.
Korea Polar Research Institute, Incheon, Republic of Korea
The 25th International Symposium on Polar Sciences organized by Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) will aim to bring polar scientists together to discuss their research findings and to promote international collaborative research. We cordially invite you to share your knowledge and perspectives on future outlook in Polar research.
The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) invites participation in the virtual discussion, Intersection of Arctic Science and Policy. This web presentation will be held via Zoom Video Conferencing.
Dr. Brendan Kelly, SEARCH Executive Director, will present a short history of Arctic research policy—from the Arctic Research and Policy Act of 1984 to the Department of Defense Arctic Strategy of 2017—followed by observations on the future science needed to support policy. Input from others on the call is encouraged.
Vegetation change has been observed across Arctic and boreal regions. Studies have often documented large-scale greening trends (i.e. increased plant productivity or measured “greenness”) but they have also identified areas of browning (decreased productivity) or shifts between greening and browning over varying spatial extents and time periods. At the same time, there are large portions of these ecosystems that have not exhibited measurable trends in greening or browning.
