For the seventh time the Alpine Glaciology/Glaciologist Meeting (AGM) will be hosted in Zürich, Switzerland. The meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers and permafrost. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young researchers are especially encouraged to present their work in progress.

When:

Where: 
Washington, DC

The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.

Join us in this workshop to explore the possible links between Arctic change and mid-latitude weather and climate​ that has spurred a rush of new observational and modeling studies.

When: 
Thu, 02/02/2017
Where: 
Naval Heritage Center in Washington, D.C.

Organizers announce a call for registration to an evening lecture entitled "Changing Arctic: How It's Affecting Our Weather." This lecture
will convene 6:00-8:00 p.m. EST.

Profound changes in the Arctic have coincided with more frequent extreme weather events across the mid-latitudes, such as Washington, D.C. These events include intense heat and rainfall, and severe winter cold spells and snow storms. Scientists are actively addressing if and how Arctic change is connected to these events, which affect economies, geopolitics, security, and society at large.

The Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) and the Joint Antarctic School Expedition (JASE) invite high school students in their junior year to apply for two National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported polar science exploration programs. The JSEP project will take place in Greenland and the JASE project will be located in Antarctica and the Chilean Antarctic Institute in Chile.

Online, deadline at 9:00 am AKST

Each year we select expedition teams of 8-9 teenage girls and 3 instructors to spend 12 days exploring and learning about glaciers and the alpine or marine environment. Through scientific field studies with professional glaciologists, ecologists, artists, and mountaineers, you will build critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, and make lasting friendships. One team explores Mount Baker, an ice-covered volcano in the North Cascades of Washington State. Another team sleeps under the midnight sun while exploring an Alaskan glacier.

The 2nd Asian Conference on Permafrost (ACOP2017) will take place on 2-6 July, in Sapporo, Japan. The conference is hosted by the International Permafrost Association (IPA) and covers all aspects of frozen ground – both permafrost and seasonal frost – and its related natural and technological topics. The proposed sessions are as listed below:

Organizers of the 15th Annual Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop (CPASW) announce a call for abstracts. The theme of this workshop is "Understanding Extreme Events and Decision-Maker Needs in the Context of Climate Variability and Change" and will convene 2-4 May 2017 in Anchorage, Alaska.
