This workshop will focus on events that drive damage to Arctic vegetation, their causes, and consequences. With increasing frequency of
events causing damage to Arctic vegetation and an increasing appreciation of the diversity of different events that can cause browning, this workshop provides an opportunity to discuss Arctic browning drivers, subsequent consequences, prepare outputs, and develop future collaborations. It will take place from 10-11 May 2017 in Sheffield, United Kingdom.

Events of interest include, but are not limited to:

Team Science as Collaborative Cognition in Complex Contexts
When:

Where: 
Online: 9:00-10:00 am AKST, 1:00-2:00 pm EST

ARCUS is dedicated to connecting Arctic research across boundaries through communication, coordination, and collaboration. We are delighted to host an exclusive members-only webinar (open only to ARCUS individual members and organizational member affilliates) featuring a discussion with Dr. Stephen M. Fiore on the science of team science. Since Arctic research is often necessarily cross-institutional, cross-disciplinary, cross-sector, and international, Dr. Fiore can help us to better understand the underpinnings and challenges of such boundary-crossing team research.

Future Earth Norway, Nord University and UiT The Arctic University of Norway invite PhD students working in fields relevant to healthy oceans and the sustainable utilization of resources to a week-long interdisciplinary PhD course in marine sustainability.

We start in Bodø with lectures, a field trip and side event. We then board the Hurtigruten for stakeholder dialogues with some stops along the way in the Lofoten Islands. We´ll finish in Tromsø with further lectures, group work and another side event.
