Impacts of a Changing Environment on the Dynamics of High-latitude Fish and Fisheries
Tue, 05/09/2017 to Thu, 05/11/2017
Hotel Captain Cook, Anchorage, Alaska
This symposium examines the impacts of the environment, especially climate change and variability, on the dynamics of arctic and subarctic species of commercial, subsistence, and ecological importance.
University of Alaska Fairbanks, Wood Center Ballroom, 9:30-11:30 a.m. ADT
The Alaska Arctic Council Host Committee and the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) will co-host a "watch party" during the Arctic Council Ministerial meeting. Watch party attendees will be able to watch the proceedings of the Ministerial event while engaging in relevant discussion. Light refreshments will be provided during the watch party.
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.
Events of interest include, but are not limited to:
The U.S. State Department will host a celebration in honor of the 20th Anniversary of the Arctic Council, as well as the Ministerial meeting attended by foreign ministers of the 8 Arctic states and heads of delegation from Permanent Participants and Observers.
This conference will take place in Trieste, Italy on 10-15 September, 2017.
The aim of the conference is to present recent results that address still open questions in understanding the sensitivity of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and its contribution to past and future sea level and climate change (http://www.scar.org/horizonscan Kennicutt M.C. Chown S. et al., Nature, 2014).
