National Science Foundation Long Term Research in Environmental Biology
When: 
Mon, 01/25/2016
Where: 
United States

The Long Term Research in Environmental Biology program, through the National Science Foundation, addresses a problem faced by many investigators, which is that typical funding awards do not have time frames long enough to address long-term, data-driven research proposals. These awards are designed to provide funding to maintain an ongoing, long-term research project for a period of a decade or even longer.

Scientific discoveries achieved from, within, and beneath the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, ice caps and valley glaciers are critical to society today, but large group endeavors are not achieved without significant advance planning. What is your vision for future subglacial science? The U.S. Ice Drilling Program Office (IDPO) is sponsoring an interdisciplinary science community planning workshop to identify the science drivers, targets, and timelines of subglacial access drilling for the coming decade. The goal of this workshop is to form consensus within the U.S.

When:

Where: 
Greenbelt, Maryland

The Science Coordination Office (SCO) for Summit Station and the Greenland Inland Traverse (GrIT) will be sponsoring a workshop on Tues., Jan. 19, 2016, that will focus on Future Research and Station Development Directions on the ice sheet including traverse science and ongoing research at Summit. The current long range plan being pursued in developing Summit Station and the Isi Observatory will be discussed. Presenters should focus on current hypotheses that guide planned future work and new research ideas are strongly encouraged.

When: 
Fri, 01/15/2016 to Sat, 01/16/2016
Where: 
Seattle, Washington

Hosted by the University of Washington School of Law, the Arctic Encounter will convene its third annual national symposia in Seattle, Washington. Building upon prior Arctic Encounter Seattle (AES) events, this two-day conference will confront the shared interests and concerns of the United States and the global community as we look north to the last emerging frontier – the Arctic.
