A CASE-sponsored conference on Holocene and Pleistocene (Interglacials) paleoceanography of the Arctic and Subarctic Ocean Realms
Tue, 02/04/2014 to Thu, 02/06/2014
Univerité Bordeaux, Talence, France
This Open Conference stands as the final event organized within the framework of the "CASE" EU-FP7 Initial Training Network (case.itn.epoc.u-bordeaux1.fr), a research and training network on marine biotic indicators of recent (Holocene) climate changes in the high latitudes of the North Atlantic. We aim, through this conference, at extending both the geographical and temporal domains investigated within CASE to the wide Arctic Ocean and surrounding seas and to past Interglacials of the Pleistocene era.
In the fifth webinar of this series, we will cover the funding models available from a range of agencies, industry, and organizations that support long-term observing. Also included is discussion about different funding horizons, partnerships, and strategies that influence not only the capability, but the scientific content and longevity of observations. The webinar will be available through Webex (details available at www.arctichub.net).
The Science Coordination Office (SCO) for Summit and the Greenland Inland Traverse (GrIT) invites you to take part in the 2014 GEOSummit Workshop to be held following the NASA IceBridge and PARCA Planning Meetings at the Goddard Space Flight Center.
The All-day Workshop is scheduled for 31 January, 2014 and will be focused on Scientific Results and Future Research Directions on the ice sheet; including traverse science, research at Summit, and activities at the new Isi Station.
Part of the "2014 Science for Alaska Series". Lectures will be held on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. at the Gold Room in the Westmark Fairbanks Hotel and Convention Center, with the exception of Feb. 18. That day the lecture will be the Westmark's Northern Latitudes room. Be sure to stay after the lecture and meet our presenters!
The mission of the Alaska Marine Science Symposium is to bring together scientists, policymakers, students, educators, media and the public to share research findings focused on Alaska’s marine fisheries and ecosystems.Since 2002, scientists from Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond have come to the Symposium to communicate research activities in the marine regions off Alaska. Researchers and students in marine science re-connect with old colleagues and meet new ones.
Arctic Frontiers will hold its 8th annual conference in Tromsø, Norway, from 19-24 January 2014, with the title: Humans in the Arctic. The Arctic Frontiers conference is a central arena for discussions of Arctic issues. The conference brings 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. Arctic Frontiers 2014 will address two main themes:
The fourth thematic area of long-term observing management and governance to be addressed is one of network relevance. Questions in this webinar will target the relationship between different mission agencies and between agencies and communities when determining observing priorities. Additional discussion will revolve around the role of data, products, and integrated information in developing an argument for relevance. The webinar will be available through Webex (details available at www.arctichub.net).
The NASA Snow Working Group for Remote Sensing (SWGR) has been holding a series of meetings to create a blueprint for future U.S. and International snow remote sensing research, and to create a community and forum for the exchange of ideas related to snow and remote sensing. In August we held a three-day workshop in Boulder that was widely attended. We are continuing the work.
Between January 14-16th 2014 we will hold our 2nd Snow Remote Sensing Workshop at Granby, Colorado. The workshop has three goals:
For energy companies exploring the Alaskan Tundra, ice roads are often the only way to travel. But, building these roads is complex, often dangerous, and could have long term impacts on the environment. Under a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy, the NSDSS was developed by the UAF, Texas A&M University, and Atkins Engineering to help the various stakeholders of the ice road planning process to collaboratively design ice roads.
