Mon, 02/03/2020 to Wed, 02/05/2020
Where: 
University of Bern, Switzerland

The 9th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) will be held at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland.

The cryosphere of the Earth is undergoing dramatic changes. Glaciers are retreating at accelerated rate and snow cover distribution and duration is changing with many significant side-effects (run-off, permafrost, albedo, etc.). Remote Sensing can provide the required data to study these changes of the cryosphere.

When:

Where: 
Anchorage, Alaska

The Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS), Alaska’s premier marine research conference, has been bringing together scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and interested public for over twenty years to discuss the latest marine research being conducted in Alaskan waters. Over 700 people attend this 4-day long conference held annually during the month of January.

Permafrost Environment Under Persistent Warming: Challenges for Scientific Assessment & Engineering Practice
When: 
Fri, 01/31/2020

The 12th International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP2020) will be held in Lanzhou, China from June 22~26, 2020. The general theme of the congress is “Permafrost Environment Under Persistent Warming: Challenges for Scientific Assessment & Engineering Practice”.

Sessions will include:

When: 
Tue, 01/28/2020 to Fri, 01/31/2020
Where: 
Bolzano/Bozen, Italy

Snow is an important component of the hydrologic cycle. The seasonal storage of water in the snowpack may last over months, and its delayed release is a major factor in guaranteeing a reliable water supply for ecosystems and human needs during dry periods. On the other hand, rapid snowmelt can cause destruction through sudden floods, mostly in combination with rainfall.

Power of Knowledge
When: 
Sun, 01/26/2020 to Thu, 01/30/2020
Where: 
Tromsø, Norway

Arctic Frontiers Science 2020 will address the following themes:

  • Arctic Food Security
  • Knowledge-based development in the Arctic
  • Disruptive technologies
  • Local or Global Arctic? Multi-scaled considerations of connections and remoteness in climate-impacted communities

On behalf of the Arctic Frontiers Science Committees, we have great pleasure in inviting you to submit one or more abstracts to any of the four themes.

and the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting
When: 
Tue, 01/28/2020 to Thu, 01/30/2020
Where: 
Obergurgl, Austria

In addition to sessions on glacier dynamics and mass balance, the workshop will host a cross-cutting activity by the Cryosphere and Marine Working Groups of IASC on “Glacier-ocean interactions and their impact on Arctic marine ecosystems”. This activity aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum by bringing together glaciologists, marine ecologists and oceanographers interested in glacier-ocean interactions and to stimulate future collaborations.

Program Officers in attendance: John D. Schade (BIO/DEB) and Colleen Strawhacker (GEO/OPP)
