We regret to inform you that the 26th ISPS, scheduled on 12-13 May 2020 in Incheon, Korea, is canceled as a proactive measure against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Korea.

The Organizing Committee decided to cancel the symposium in consideration of 1. the current domestic and foreign situation, 2. the government guideline to postpone or cancel the group event, and 3. the risk of infection and any possible inconvenience related to quarantine after traveling to Korea.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Permafrost Discovery Gateway is a new NSF Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) award that will create an online platform for archiving, processing, analyzing, and visualizing permafrost big imagery products for discovery and knowledge-generation. This new online scientific gateway will provide access to high resolution satellite data products and visualization tools that expand on the Gapminder Foundation, Google Earth and Fluid Earth Viewer to enable exploration of changes in permafrost across decades. Designed as a community resource, we want input across all stages of development.

In September 2019, the German icebreaker Polarstern and the Russian research vessel Akademik Fedorov set sail into the Central Arctic sea ice. With the aim to collect data around the coupled Arctic climate system, Polarstern will drift through the Arctic for an entire year as part of the MOSAiC project. MOSAiC education and outreach activities aim to create visibility of field research and awareness for globally important topics of Arctic change.
