The role of non-governmental actors (NGA) in the polar regions has been discussed in different articles and books, but a comprehensive volume assessing their normative role for the lives of people, institutions and laws in both the Arctic and Antarctic has yet to be released.
The planned volume Non-governmental Actors in the Polar Regions aims to fill that gap. The proposal will be submitted to a major academic publisher, such as Springer or Routledge.
The annual international user meeting for the ice-flow model Úa will this year be held at Northumbria University, Newcastle, United Kingdom.
Úa is a finite-element ice-flow model. It is easy to use, robust, and an ideal tool to solve flow of ice sheets, ice shelves and alpine glaciers, and for ice-flow problems involving grounding line migration (https://sway.com/A3ihHbhXG59GwsYf).
The meeting is suitable for both new and experienced users.
Following successful CHGCS 2017 in Wuhan, China (in conjunction with the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2017), CHGCS 2019 will provide an opportunity for all professionals involved in cryosphere and hydrosphere to share research ideas and results, foster and enhance cooperation, draw inspirations and maximize potentials. It will take place on June 14, 2019, in Enschede, the Netherlands, organized by ISPRS WG III/9 Cryosphere and Hydrosphere.
Speaking: Tim Schmit, Research Satellite Meteorologist NOAA NESDIS STAR at the University of Wisconsin

There have been many recent changes to better observe Alaska from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) perspective. The most significant change was on February 12, 2019 when GOES-17 became NOAA’s operational West geostationary satellite. The Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) has spectral bands covering the visible, near-infrared and infrared portions of the electro-magnetic spectrum.
Organizers invite applications for their 2019 field school, a part of the International Partnerships for Excellence in Education and Research (INTPART) project, Arctic Field Summer Schools: Norway-Canada-USA Collaboration.
This opportunity is open to U.S.-based graduate students enrolled at U.S. universities. The international partners will advertise separately.
The Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) is a joint Canadian/U.S. organization founded in the 1940s originally with members from eastern North America. Today, our members come from the United Kingdom, Japan and Germany, as well as North America. Our current membership includes scientists, engineers, snow surveyors, technicians, professors, students and professionals involved in operations and maintenance. The western counterpart to this organization is the Western Snow Conference (WSC), also a joint Canadian/US organization.
The Arctic as a Laboratory for Sustainable Art and Cultural Policy
Mon, 06/03/2019 to Wed, 06/05/2019
The Arctic region is changing rapidly. On the one hand, ecological, cultural, social and economical changes pose challenges for well-being and sustainable development and on the other hand, some of the changes also create new possibilities. In the Arctic Arts Summit 2019 the challenges and circumstances in the Arctic are seen as 'laboratory' in which sustainable art and cultural policy is developed in collaboration with all of the Arctic counties. Artists and representatives of art and cultural policy will discuss the theme and promote circumpolar collaboration.
Global Ocean State & Parameter Estimation: From Methods to Applications in Oceanographic Research
Sun, 05/19/2019 to Fri, 05/31/2019
University of Washington, Friday Harbor, Washington
The Consortium for "Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean" (ECCO) will host a summer school for graduate students and early career scientists on global ocean state estimation in support of climate research. The school introduces the tools and mathematics of ocean state and parameter estimation and their application to ocean science through a mix of foundational lectures, hands-on tutorials, and projects.
Climate Change and Security of the Arctic Population
Wed, 05/22/2019 to Thu, 05/30/2019
The Arctic Science Summit Week 2019 will take place in Northern (Arctic) Federal University and Northern State Medical University, Russia, Arkhangelsk. Under the auspices of International Arctic Science Committee, participants from more than 23 countries and regions will be involved.
