The congress "The Arctic: opportunities and challenges deriving
from climate change" wants to be a forum for scientific, legal
and political analysis of the rapid changes ongoing in the Arctic
region as a result of global warming; as well as a space of
debate for the consideration of possible future strategies of
adaptation, governance and sustainable development in the
Counting with the participation of distinguished international
Identifying Profitability In Arctic Shipping With Safe & Efficient Operations. ACI’s 7th Arctic Shipping Summit 2015 will focus on discussing the practical solutions necessary for the ship owners to decide whether they should invest in utilising the Northern Sea Route. The meeting will provide updates on key developments and regulations in the Arctic, as well as present expert views on possible future advances in governing the transport routes. The conference will also address how to overcome the operational challenges that exist while entering the region.
The Arctic Circle will, in addition to the annual October Assemblies in Iceland, convene smaller and more specialized forums in other countries. In cooperation with Singapore Maritime Institute and the Government of Singapore an Arctic Circle Forum will take place in Singapore on November 12th 2015.
The Arctic Ocean and its adjacent seas and coasts are currently undergoing unprecedented changes reflected in summer sea ice decline, warming, increased Atlantic water heat transport, freshening, retreat of glaciers, and ocean acidification. These changes are affecting the chemical and physical environment such as stratification, nutrient availability, air-sea gas exchange and light conditions. Consequently, these changes will impact the primary and secondary production and subsequently the whole marine ecosystem.
Plenary Talk at the Implications of a Changing Arctic on Water Resources and Agriculture in the Central U.S. Workshop
University Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Natural Resources
Sea Ice Action Team Co-Chair, Jennifer Francis, will be the plenary speaker for the Implications of a Changing Arctic on Water Resources and Agriculture in the Central U.S. workshop taking place at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Natural Resources on November 10, 2015 from 7-9pm.
Don't miss a discussion forum at the November 10 meeting of the Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (BASC). Invited speakers will address how climate change and weather may be influencing recent migrations and could trigger future migrations. Presentations will address observational data and modeling tools that could be used to anticipate population shifts and project their potential impacts. The event is free and open to the public and will be webcast.
The Association of Canadian Universities for Northern Studies (ACUNS) will convene an interdisciplinary conference of early career scientists working on Arctic issues. The meeting, held every three years, is cross-disciplinary and diverse, and our goal is to welcome 200 to 400 international participants working on all Arctic disciplines and themes. The organizers have issued a call for abstracts, due 5/31/15, on the following topics:
We are pleased to announce the 9th Graduate Climate Conference, which will be held November 6th-8th in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
The goal of this graduate student-organized conference is to assemble a broad range of talks and posters featuring high-quality student research focused on past, present, and future climate, its changes, and their impacts. We encourage students at all stages of their graduate career to apply, and we seek abstracts on climate research from a variety of disciplines from the sciences, engineering, and humanities, including:
The Forum for Arctic Ocean Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS) is an international effort to focus on enhancing collaboration and coordination among arctic marine and sea ice modelers, theoreticians and observationalists based on a set of activities starting from generating hypotheses, to planning research included both observations and modeling, and to finalizing analyses synthesizing major results from the field studies and coordinated numerical experiments.
In commemoration of its 80th anniversary, the American Polar Society will join with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to bring together world-class leaders in science and diplomacy to discuss the role of polar oceans in global climate change.
