Organizers announce that the Girls on Ice 2016 Expeditions are now accepting applications. The 2016 program includes two expeditions. The original North Cascades expedition in Washington State will be held 10-21 July 2016, and an Alaska-based expedition will take place 17-28 June 2016.
Online and in person: University of Alaska Fairbanks, 407 IARC/AKASOFU, 10:00 AM AKDT, 2:00 PM EDT
Speaker: Jeremy Mathis, Director NOAA Arctic Research Program (ARP)
With critical past, and potential future environmental changes affecting Alaska and the Arctic Region, the United States needs to rapidly expand long-term observing of the ice and marine environment across the greater Arctic Ocean Basin, as well as conditions across the state of Alaska. This will allow us to better monitor changes across the region, and support stakeholders with improving prediction capabilities for weather, marine ecosystems, sea-ice, and climate.
The WIHAH conference is bringing together Alaskan, U.S., and international engineers, health experts, researchers, community members, policymakers, and innovators to discuss health benefits, challenges and innovations associated with making running water and sewer in remote northern communities safe, affordable and sustainable. A conference proceedings publication and a summary report of the meeting will be produced. This conference will consist of expert speaker and poster presentation sessions, along with selected innovative technical demonstrations.
Scripps Institution of Oceanography (UC San Diego), in La Jolla, California
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of California at Irvine will host the 2016 Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM) Workshop. It will be sponsored by Pr Helen Fricker who graciously offered to host the workshop.
USAPECS is organizing a webinar series for Spring 2016 (April - June) focused on how to best share your science.
Writing for Media and the General Public
With Jeff Richardson, public information officer at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Jeff Richardson has experience working in local media and as the public information officer for the University of Alaska Fairbanks. His webinar will give some tips about finding the story in your research, and other strategies to consider when writing for the media and general audiences.
Meeting prior to 11th International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP)
Telegrafenberg, A 43.14473 Potsdam, Room A43-KR
RATIC is a new initiative organized through the Terrestrial, Cryosphere, and Social & Human working groups of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC). It is a forum that addresses the cumulative effects of infrastructure and climate change. A full description of RATIC and goals can be found in the RATIC white paper presented at the Arctic Science Summit Week in Fairbanks, Alaska (ASSW 2016):
before the 11th International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP) in Potsdam
Sat, 06/18/2016 to Sun, 06/19/2016
A "Young Researchers Workshop" will take place at the XI. International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP 2016) on 18 - 19 June 2016. This workshop is organized as a joint effort of PYRN (Permafrost Young Researchers Network), APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists), the young researcher representatives of the USPA (United States Permafrost Association), and ADAPT (Arctic Development and Adaptation to Permafrost in Transition).
The course is intended to provide glaciology graduate students with a comprehensive overview of the physics of glaciers and current research frontiers in glaciology with focus on quantitative glaciology, modeling and remote sensing of glaciers and ice sheets. The course is taught by glaciology faculty of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and several invited guest lecturers.
