Speaking: Rick Thoman, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy (ACCAP)
University of Alaska Fairbanks, or online: 12:00pm AKDT, 4:00pm EDT
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 April 2019 and the spring/early summer season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
Breaking Barriers: Promoting Interdisciplinarity in Polar Science
The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is proud to announce the much awaited 5th annual APECS International Online Conference to go live on 15 May 2019. This year’s theme, “Breaking Barriers: Promoting Interdisciplinarity in Polar Science” aims to encourage collaboration between early career scientists from varied disciplines, working in the polar and alpine regions.
Shedding Light on the Physical, Biogeochemical and Human Dimensions of Connectivity in Changing Polar Seas
Sun, 03/17/2019 to Fri, 03/22/2019
Lucca (Barga), Italy
Building on the tradition of excellence of the GRC Conference Series, the 2019 GRC on Polar Marine Science "Shedding Light on the Physical, Biogeochemical and Human Dimensions of Connectivity in Changing Polar Seas" will bring together leading investigators to present and discuss cutting edge research on both polar oceans. The unique GRC format, with invited speakers and discussion leaders, provides an avenue for scientists from different fields to brainstorm and create synergy across disciplines. Conference themes are explored in greater detail during the highly dynamic poster sessions.
Registration and abstract submission is now open for the 8th Astrobiology Society of Britain Conference that is being hosted by Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom on the 25-26th April 2019.
Linking Marine Science Disciplines to Enhance Our Understanding of Polar Oceans
Sat, 03/16/2019 to Sun, 03/17/2019
The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science provides early career scientists with a unique opportunity to further enhance their Gordon Conference experience. The goal of this conference is to bring together graduate students and postdocs within all fields of polar marine science, including marine biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and technology to discuss interdisciplinary links and provide a basis for future collaborations.
New Thinking about Local Agriculture in the Circumpolar Arctic - Best Practices, Innovations, and Perspectives
Wed, 03/13/2019 to Fri, 03/15/2019
Arctic Centre, University of Lapland, Rovaniemi, Finland
The conference is the tenth in line of international conferences organized within the framework of CAA (Circumpolar Agriculture Association), aimed at people involved in northern agriculture such as researchers, practitioners, administrators, managers, policy-makers and students. The conference will address a bottom-up approach and new thinking of local agriculture, food production and rural development in the northern areas. The goal is to open up and discuss versatile meanings of circumpolar agriculture and call for new thinking to address its topical challenges and opportunities.
