National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists in conjunction with Congressman Sam Farr and responders will highlight how they access and interpret science to keep communities safe and commerce moving through a hypothetical California-based scenario impacting a National Marine Sanctuary, walking participants through each step of the response. The scenario will cover: oil spill response, marine debris tracking and removal, early Natural Resource Damage Assessment efforts, information management, and public involvement.
The U.S. Climate Variability and Predictability Research Program (CLIVAR) will sponsor an international workshop entitled "Understanding the Response of Greenland's Marine Terminating Glaciers to Oceanic and Atmospheric Forcing." It is scheduled to convene 3-7 June 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts.
CLIVAR is a U.S. national research program investigating the variability and predictability of the global climate system on seasonal, inter-annual, decadal, and centennial timescales, with a particular emphasis on the role the ocean plays in climate variability.
The CliC Arctic Sea Ice Working Group has held three past workshops (2009 - 2011) bringing together some of the world's leading sea ice researchers to develop, standardize and implement measurement protocols and to integrate observation and modeling. Since 2011 CliC, together with SCAR, strives to integrate sea-ice modeling and observation activities in the Southern Ocean through ASPeCt. This workshop for 30 researchers from around the world will include specialists working on sea-ice modeling, observations, remote sensing and forecasting.
The workshop focuses on the impact of our climate on coastal zones and inland waters, on climate change and its expected effects on European seas, and on the role of remote sensing for its study. Topics include:
The French Arctic Initiative's inaugural symposium entitled "Arctic : the Major Scientific Issues" will be held June 3-5, 2013 at Collège de France, in Paris. It will be followed, on June 6, 2013, by a day of reflection on future prospects for the Arctic and, in the evening, public event at l'Institut Océanographique.
The 70th Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held at the Active Learning Centre in, Huntsville, ON, Canada 4-6 June, 2013. The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology. This year’s general theme is “SNOW AND ICE UNDER A CHANGING CLIMATE”. The ESC has only plenary (paper and poster viewing) sessions, allowing time to view and discuss the research of each participant. You are all invited on an afternoon local historical train trip.
Organizers of the 20th international scientific symposium on The Integration of Archaeological and Ethnographic Research announce an invitation for papers and panels. The symposium will take place from 27 May - 2 June 2013 in Irkutsk, Eastern Siberia, Russia.
