The International Conference on Permafrost, held every four years, is the premier venue for all research related to permafrost.

When: 
Sun, 06/24/2012 to Fri, 06/29/2012
Where: 
Fairbanks, Alaska

Glaciers and ice sheets are making large contributions to rising sea level, and their mass losses are expected to accelerate in a warming climate. New technologies have broadened our ability to detect and monitor glacier and ice sheet changes, though large uncertainties about the current state of the cryosphere remain. Moreover, predictive models are at present unable to capture many key processes of glacier mass balance and dynamics, many of which are non-linear. How are glaciers and ice sheets responding to recent changes in climate, and what changes can we expect in the future?

When: 
Sun, 06/24/2012 to Thu, 06/28/2012
Where: 
Anchorage, Alaska

The 2012 NMEA conference is entitled "North to Alaska's Seas: A Confluence of Science and Culture". The NMEA Annual Conference will bring together formal and informal educators, scientists, students, and resource managers to share ideas about the world of water. Conference sponsors are the Northwest Aquatic and Marine Educators (NAME) and the Alaska Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE Alaska).

When: 
Mon, 06/25/2012 to Wed, 06/27/2012
Where: 
Indianapolis, Indiana

The workshop will bring together a multi-disciplinary group of scientists representing the bio-, cryo-, geo- and atmospheric sciences to investigate the issues that can be addressed by remote field programs. The aim is to exchange ideas about scientific priorities which could be explored from 2-3 possible sites and develop a consensus on the highest priority site that would be the focus of the next round of proposals (in 2013). Another goal is to introduce a new generation of researchers to the possibilities for future scientific investigations in the Transantarctic Mountains.

When: 
Mon, 06/25/2012
Where: 
Fairbanks, Alaska

Panelists include Suzanne Bevan, of Swansea University, Erin Pettit of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Ross Powell of Northern Illinois University, and Ian Willis of Cambridge University. Each panel member will give a short overview of their career to date and then there will be a discussion session with the opportunity for all attendees to ask questions of our panelists on all matters pertaining to building a successful career in polar or cryospheric research.

When: 
Sun, 06/17/2012 to Fri, 06/22/2012
Where: 
Rhodes, Greece

Since ISOPE-1992, the annual ISOPE conferences have been the world’s largest technical conferences of its kind with peer-reviewed papers. Proceedings are INDEXED by Engineering Index and Compendex.

When: 
Mon, 06/18/2012 to Fri, 06/22/2012
Where: 
Anchorage, Alaska

The joint IAVCEI-IACS Commission on Volcano-Ice Interactions would like to announce the Third International Conference on Volcano-Ice Interactions on Earth & Other Planets, to be held in Anchorage, Alaska, June 18–22, 2012. We are planning a three-day oral and poster session meeting format followed by two days for field excursions to the Wrangell volcanic field and Cook Inlet volcanoes.

When: 
Mon, 06/18/2012 to Fri, 06/22/2012
Where: 
Gilleleje, Denmark

Determining reliably the recent changes of the large continental ice sheets is a major scientific challenge. The results are of great societal importance, especially in terms of global sea level rise. Various satellite missions have provided unique data for monitoring the changing cryosphere, with each measuring technique having different strengths and limitations.

This course will cover fundamentals of space based monitoring of glaciers and ice sheets, such as satellite radar and laser altimetry, satellite gravimetry (GRACE), GPS and SAR interferometry.

When: 
Sun, 06/17/2012 to Fri, 06/22/2012
Where: 
Rhodes, Greece
