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.

Sun, 05/05/2019 to Sat, 05/11/2019
Where: 
Catalina Island, California

Future polar-focused researchers will need a strong foundation of interdisciplinary approaches to understand the rapid changes in polar regions. The Next Generation Polar Research Conference (NGPR-3) is designed to train and network early career polar researchers for interdisciplinary research careers. This week-long symposium will be held at the University of Southern California's Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island, CA.

University of Alaska Anchorage

EPSCoR invites University of Alaska faculty, staff, students and affiliates to a workshop examining key questions about the role of Indigenous Knowledges in academia. Topics include how Indigenous Knowledges can be engaged in teaching and research with integrity, using authentic and decolonizing methods. Co-leaders Drs.

Polar ocean facing changes
When: 
Mon, 05/06/2019 to Fri, 05/10/2019
Where: 
Liège, Belgium

Polar oceans are facing profound changes. The Arctic Ocean and the waters west of the Antarctic Peninsula are at the forefront of global warming, while the rest of the polar oceans will face changes in the very near future. The changes to face are not limited to a raise in atmospheric temperature and modification in the freshwater budget. Increases of economic activities (shipping, tourism, fisheries and mineral extraction), contaminants and invasive species also put polar oceans at risk.
