FRISP started out as an European forum, but now welcomes any scientist working on ice shelves and related issues. FRISP remains a focus on glaciology, but the scope is extended to include continental shelf oceanography, meteorology, and quaternary paleoclimatology to encourage discussion between these disciplines.
The conference comprises 3 days and welcomes presentations (oral and posters) on all aspects of ice shelf research and ice-ocean interaction, in both hemispheres , including, but not limited to:
"The Past, Present, and Future of the Earth's Cryosphere"
Sun, 06/03/2012 to Fri, 06/08/2012
The Symposium will cover a wide range of glaciological problems focusing on recent changes in the state of the cryosphere and its impacts in different time scales. Each oral presentation will be allowed 20 minutes, including discussion. The program includes poster sessions and time for discussion.
Participants are expected to arrive to Arkhangelsk on Sunday, 3 June. The Symposium sessions will be held on the 4-8 June. A reception will be organized on one of the evenings. Further information about excursions will be available later on our website.
The Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) is a joint Canadian/U.S. organization founded in the 1940s originally with members from eastern North America. Today, Our members come from the United Kingdom, Japan and Germany, as well as North America. Our current membership includes scientists, engineers, snow surveyors, technicians, professors, students and professionals involved in operations and maintenance.
The 97th meeting of the USARC will be held in Montreal, Canada, in conjunction with the "From Knowledge to Action" IPY meeting. The Commission will meet on April 27-28, and will meet jointly with the Canadian Polar Commission on the afternoon of the 27th, to discuss common interests in Arctic Research. Details to follow.
Organizers announce that the 18th International Symposium on Polar Sciences will be held in Jeju Island, Republic of Korea on 22-24 May 2012. The conference will be sponsored by the Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI).
EARSeL is a scientific network of European remote sensing laboratories, coming from both academia and commercial/industrial sector, which covers all fields of geoinformation and earth observation through remote sensing. All scientists, professionals and researchers involved or interested in the field of the symposium are strongly encouraged to present papers according to the following topics. Authors are requested to submit their abstracts by December 15, 2011.
Contributions are invited in one of the following topics:
This workshop about PISM will foster the exchange between different groups especially from Europe. The first day is dedicated to oral and poster presentations from all groups. During the second day, key aspects are introduced and afterward these are discussed in parallel group sessions to share experiences and to identify future needs.
This conference deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic. It will provide an international forum for the discussion of work currently being carried out in the circumpolar regions of the world.
