NOAA AMOC-Climate Linkages in the North and/or South Atlantic
In FY 2016, the Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program solicits projects that will refine the current scientific understanding of the AMOC state, variability, and change. Specifically, projects are sought that use newly deployed and existing observations in combination with modeling experiments to refine our understanding of the present and historical circulation (and related transports of heat and freshwater) in the North and/or South Atlantic. An emerging priority is to provide a more detailed characterization of AMOC flow pathways and their impact on variability.
NOAA Research to Advance Prediction of Subseasonal to Seasonal Phenomena
In FY 2016, the MAPP program solicits research proposals to improve the understanding of predictability and the potential to advance the prediction of phenomena occurring on S2S time scales. Such phenomena include, but are not limited to, the MJO and associated midlatitude teleconnections, the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), stratospheric flow regimes, and atmospheric blocking episodes.
Based on the success of the past TAMScience meeting and the interest in promoting interdisciplinary research in Antarctica you are invited to participate in the upcoming NSF-sponsored Interdisciplinary Antarctic Earth Science Meeting (ANT-Sci). The meeting is intended to provide a forum for recent Antarctic research, to facilitate the exchange of information, and to encourage interdisciplinary research in the Earth Sciences.
Organizers invite participation in the upcoming NSF-sponsored Interdisciplinary Antarctic Earth Science Meeting (ANT-Sci). It will be held 20-22 September 2015 on the Sylvan Dale Ranch in Loveland, Colorado.
The ongoing global process of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) contributes significantly to present-day rates of sea level change, causes temporal changes in the Earth’s gravitational field, and is evident in the displacement of the Earth’s surface.
The Swedish Agricultural University, Uppsala University, and The International Tundra Experiment (ITEX) announces that the 21st ITEX meeting is scheduled for 15-18 September 2015. It will be held at the Campus Ultuna, Swedish Agricultural University in Uppsala, Sweden.
The conference is open for all scientists and students with an interest in arctic and alpine ecology. All areas of ecological research in both terrestrial and aquatic environments in alpine or polar regions are welcome! A special focus at this meeting is linking above and belowground processes under climate change.
This three-day conference aims to bring together UK Arctic scientists of all natural and social science disciplines to present and discuss recent findings. We welcome presentations on the following topics:

The National Park Service's Shared Beringian Heritage Program announces the 2015 Request for Proposals.
The NPS Shared Beringian Heritage Program funds cooperative efforts that link people, organizations, institutions, and local governments across the Bering Strait. Projects funded under this program may be either scientific research projects or local, community-based educational, cultural or conservation projects that fulfill some or all of the goals of the Beringia program. Full proposals are due Monday, September 14, 2015
