Arctic research spans disciplinary, institutional, national, and sector boundaries in pursuit of improved understanding and decision making for this vital region. In order to work effectively across these boundaries, it is important to focus on effective communication, coordination, and collaboration. This interactive session will explore what is being done, and what could be done, to bridge boundaries and advance research. For example, the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) is an
Arctic Ambitions V conference focuses on commercial opportunities in the Arctic, such as engineering, construction, architecture, natural resource development, environmental services, maritime shipping and logistics, and international trade.
Join us for a PolarConnect Event with PolarTREC teacher Cara Pekarcik and the team studying Southern Ocean Diatoms.
This is a real-time event with Boston teacher Cara Pekarcik and the researcher team looking at Southern Ocean Diatoms. They will be sharing experiences and observations of their work aboard the R/V N.B. Palmer in the Southern Ocean off the tip of the Antarctic peninsula. Read more about the research and what Cara is learning here:
We are pleased to announce the first IGLOOS (Interactions at the interface of glaciology, oceanography and sea ice) Workshop to be held at the School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University on the 28-30th September 2016. The workshop aims to foster new collaborations within Wales and beyond, focused on challenges in cryosphere-ocean interaction science in a changing climate.
Funds are available for projects that protect, restore, or enhance fish and aquatic habitats or otherwise directly support habitat-related priorities of the Southwest Alaska Salmon Partnership. Proposals are due September 30th, 2016. The announcement and scoring criteria can be found at the link above.
The Administration will host the first-ever White House Arctic Science Ministerial, bringing together leaders from foreign governments around the world to expand joint collaborations focused on Arctic science, research, observations, monitoring, and data-sharing.
Charting the course for climate and ocean research
Sun, 09/18/2016 to Sun, 09/25/2016
The collective voice and expertise of the international climate community is essential in shaping the international research agenda on the coupled ocean-atmosphere system. The World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Core Project on Climate and Ocean – CLIVAR - invites the international climate community to review the state of the science, to prioritize international research plans and to initiate new collaborations. In September 2016 CLIVAR will hold an Open Science Conference to engage the wider collection of scientists who work in this important area.
