The 13th International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Science (ISAES 2019) will be held at the Songdo Convensia in Incheon, Republic of Korea. The symposium aims to bring together Antarctic earth scientists from different areas in order to gather and highlight their outstanding expertise and ideas.
Using ecological and chronological data to improve proxy-based paleo sea level reconstructions
Sun, 07/21/2019 to Tue, 07/23/2019
Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland
The first meeting of the new phase (2019-2021) of the PAGES and INQUA working group PALeo constraints on SEA level rise (PALSEA) will focus on refining proxy-based reconstructions of past sea level. Sea-level rise due to polar ice sheet decay in a warming world is one of the most important, and most uncertain aspects associated with climate change. Because the instrumental record is short and changes to date have been modest, observations from the recent past provide at best a limited vantage point from which to gauge the future.
Speaking: Rick Thoman, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy (ACCAP)
University of Alaska Fairbanks, or online: 12:00pm AKDT, 4:00pm EDT
The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for August 2019 and the fall season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
Available online or in-person at: Room 407 in the Akasofu Building on the UAF Campus in Fairbanks.
The 8th Symposium on the Impacts of an Ice-Diminishing Arctic on Naval and Maritime Operations is co-hosted by the U.S. National Ice Center, the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, and the Woodrow Wilson Center.
Beyond 100: The Next Century in Earth and Space Science
Mon, 07/08/2019 to Thu, 07/18/2019
Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada
The 27th IUGG General Assembly will be held at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada. This is a special opportunity for participants from Canada and from around the world to come together and share their science and culture. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of IUGG; we will look back on the accomplishments of the previous century of Earth and space science research, and forward to the next century of scientific advancement. Join us for a host of scientific activities, including special public lectures, keynote Union lectures and a wide variety of themed sessions.
Passive microwave sensors on low earth orbiting satellites have the ability to monitor several parameters associated with the Earth's hydrological cycle - falling precipitation, snow and ice parameters, soil moisture, etc. These observations are particularly useful for high latitude locations where geostationary satellites have limited coverage. In this presentation, a review of the methodology used to retrieve this information will be given, then followed by several practical applications for weather forecasting and climate monitoring.
The 2019 UK Arctic Science Conference will take place 11 to 13 September 2019 and will be hosted by Loughborough University. This three day conference brings together UK Arctic scientists from all natural and social science disciplines to present and discuss recent findings.
Registration for this interdisciplinary conference is free, and the themes of the conference include: Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Terrestrial, Marine and Human/Social.
From Molecules and Microbes to Ecosystems and Health
Tue, 07/02/2019 to Fri, 07/12/2019
Whapmagoostui-Kuujjuarapik, Nunavik, Canada
Under the leadership of the Sentinel North program at Université Laval (Quebec City, Canada), the International PhD School (IPS) is a unique transdisciplinary training program aiming to understand the key role of microbiomes in shaping the structure and functioning of the Arctic, including their impacts on food webs, ecosystem services, and human health.
The main symposium will take place from Tuesday morning, 9 July, until the afternoon of Friday 12 July. On Monday 8 July there will be a presymposium short-course on ice penetrating radar science and engineering for early-career researchers. Also on Monday 8 July, side meetings will also be scheduled for collaborative radar sounding projects including BedMap3 and the SCAR AntArchitecture project.
