This joint meeting is an international gathering of more than 4,000 attendees and is being sponsored by The Oceanography Society, the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography and the American Geophysical Union.
The Scientific Planning Committee is developing a program that will cover a wide range of topics in aquatic sciences. Please continue to check the conference web site for up-to-date information and consult the program that will be posted on the website approximately four weeks prior to the meeting. A printed copy of the program will be handed out at the conference.
The workshop offers opportunities to learn details of the scientific outfitting of the new vessel and to network with other scientists. The draft schedule and details of the science sea trials will be presented and discussed. The workshop is scheduled to facilitate proposal submission deadlines in preparation for Sikuliaq funded science in early 2014.
A workshop to present the new SMOS ice thickness product, as well as the scientific and technical outcome of the ESA SMOSIce study will take place at the KlimaCampus of the University of Hamburg. Potential participants are modelers, sea ice remote sensing and assimilation experts, as well as representatives from operational ice services and international projects (e.g. CliC, CCI) and potential data users. Contributions, conclusions and recommendations from the participants will be compiled in a workshop report.
Organizers of the Community Earth System Model - Polar Climate Working Group Meeting announce a call for presentations. The meeting will be held 15-17 February 2012 in Boulder, Colorado at the National Center for
Atmospheric Research Mesa Laboratory.
The WRSA meeting includes a series of Remote Regions/Northern Development sessions to accommodate social scientists who have a special interest in research on economic, social, political, and cultural issues in remote, sparsely settled regions in the circumpolar north and elsewhere. In the past, researchers from Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Greenland, Finland, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, Micronesia, Israel, and Russia have presented papers in these sessions, which are in their thirtieth year.
Registration is now open for the Alpine Glaciology/Glaciologist Meeting (AGM) in Zürich, Switzerland. The meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers and permafrost. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young researchers are especially encouraged to present their work in progress.
Deadline for registration is 19 January, 2012.
There is no registration fee. Please register by email to luethi [at] vaw.baug.ethz.ch.
The Juneau Arctic Policy Forum will be hosted by the Institute of the North and will highlight the work done to develop and promote Alaska's role in Arctic decision-making. There will be presentations and discussion about the Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) Arctic Caucus and results from the Northern Waters Task Force. We also hope to include updates from the U.S. Coast Guard and the University of Alaska.
Endorsed by the International Arctic Science Committee, this workshop is the first in a planned series of meetings that aim to collectively shape and coordinate initiatives for research that directly addresses the needs of stakeholders who are affected by change or who are addressing arctic environmental change. The long-term objective is to enable local people, the arctic nations and the wider global community, including the scientific community, to better respond to a changing Arctic. This workshop is a pre-IPY 2012 Conference event.
The conference will bring together representatives from science, politics, and civil society to share perspectives on how upcoming challenges in the Arctic may be addressed to ensure sustainable development, and will discuss the global energy outlook and assess the
potential of traditional and renewable energy resources in the North.
