Oceanic primary production is a key component of the marine carbon, oxygen, and nutrient cycles as well as the base of the marine food web. Over the past two decades substantial efforts were deployed to evaluate oceanic primary production. These efforts include in situ measurements of uptake rates using isotopic trace techniques, satellite remote sensing, autonomous instrumentation for bio-optics, carbon or oxygen measurements, and the development of semi-empirical to complex biogeochemical models.
The ice2sea programme is an EC FP7 project to estimate the future contribution of continental ice to sea-level rise. You will have hopefully come across the project over the last four years. We are holding a series of events next month to mark the end of the project, which the cryolist community might be interested in attending.
The thirteenth International Scientific Student Conference "Problems of the Arctic Region" is devoted to scientific, environmental, technical, economic, and social aspects of the development of the Arctic. The conference will be divided into sections:
Recrystallization and grain growth take place during the thermal treatment of materials and as part of geological activity deep in the earth’s crust. The main objective of the Rex&GG Conference series is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and information on the state-of-the art in the field. Rex&GG V will include oral and poster presentations, as well as exhibition. Topics will include, but are not limited to, recrystallization and grain growth in metals, ceramics, thin films, geological materials and nanostructured materials.
The ReX & GG2013 Conference will build on the foundations of the previous four Conferences through a Program which will explore the latest information and current research in our field. Our speakers will foster meaningful discussion and debate amongst delegates which will, in turn, further the objectives of those involved in the fields of recrystallization and grain growth.
Scientists, climate scientists, social scientists, policy- and decision-makers concerned with fisheries and management of marine ecosystems, representatives of stakeholders groups including northern residents and indigenous peoples, and fisheries organizations are invited to attend the International Conference entitled "Arctic Ocean Acidification". The conference will be held In Bergen, Norway on 6–8 May 2013.
As part of the Arctic Observing Summit 2013, the Greenland Summit's Science Coordination Office invites you to take part in the XXth GEOSummit meeting, to be held as a "Side meeting" on Friday, 3 May, in Vancouver, BC. It is our sincere hope that many of you will already be in Vancouver for the AOS, and will be able to take an extra day to discuss current research and future directions for Summit.
Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) is led by the International Study of Arctic Change (ISAC). It is a Sustaining Arctic Observing Network (SAON) task and part of the broader SAON implementation process, which is led by the Arctic Council jointly with the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The 12th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Polar Meteorology and Oceanography Committee. The conference will be held at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel, Seattle, WA, 29 April-2 May, 2013.
The Alaska Rural Energy Conference is a three day event offering a large variety of technical sessions covering new and ongoing energy projects in Alaska, as well as new technologies and needs for Alaska's remote communities. Building on the growing success, the Alaska Energy Authority and the Alaska Center for Energy and Power have joined forces again to organize and sponsor the 8th annual Alaska Rural Energy Conference.
