Seminar 10 in the Series: From Science to Solutions: The State of the Carbon Cycle, the 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2). We plan to host seminars in this series on most Tuesdays, Feb. 26 - May 28.
The ICE LAW Project investigates the potential for a legal framework that acknowledges the complex geophysical environment in the world’s frozen regions and explores the impact that an ice-sensitive legal system would have on topics ranging from the everyday activities of Arctic residents to the territorial foundations of the modern state.
The conference will feature the following elements:
“ECSD5 2019” is the fifth “European Conference on Scientific Diving” organised by the IO PAN Scientific Diving TEAM, in Sopot, first time in Poland. Conferences of this series were originally initiated by the European Scientific Diving Panel in 2015 by combining “The Research in Shallow Marine and Fresh Water Systems" and “The International Symposium on Occupational Scientific Diving" into one general meeting held once a year.
Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
The two day conference aims to promote discussion on UK astrobiology. Abstracts for oral and poster presentations will be accepted in ALL aspects of Astrobiology (including research, applied impact and outreach). The keynote theme is 'The habitability of cold and icy environments', aiming to facilitate discussion between planetary scientists and researchers within the terrestrial cryosphere.
The Polar Prediction Workshop will be held at the University of Oklahoma Cooperative Institute for Mesoscale Meteorological Studies (CIMMS), in Norman, Oklahoma. Deadline to register is March 15, 2019.
The fifth annual Arctic Encounter drew over 100 speakers, 32 sponsors, 11 media partners, 13 guest performers and artist exhibitors to the downtown Seattle waterfront to discuss and debate emerging challenges and solutions in Arctic security, including energy, environment, international relations and geo-politics, and economics. The 2018 Arctic Encounter also featured photography and fashion installments, the Far North Fashion Show on the red carpet during the keynote seated dinner, artist exhibitor sales of their work, and more.
Snow avalanches are the most deadly natural hazard on National Forest land, killing around 25-30 people in the U.S. each year, with 3-4 of those fatalities occurring in Alaska. Avalanches also pose a serious threat to transportation infrastructure across the state, including vital highways and railroads. Several avalanche forecasting centers work throughout the winter to help keep Alaskans safe by issuing backcountry avalanche forecasts and performing avalanche control work.
Online: 3:00-5:00pm EDT (two separate webinars, 3:00pm and 4:00pm)
The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) announces the next two webinar in their Public Webinar Series. These webinars, NSF Program Manager Chats: Arctic System Science and Social Sciences, will take place Wednesday, 24 April 2019 at 3:00 p.m. EDT (Social Sciences) and 4:00 p.m. EDT (System Science).
