The Nordic Centre of Excellence, SVALI (Stability and Variations of Arctic Land Ice) will hold its second summer school on the topic of Glaciology and Earth System Models. The school is a joint effort by the SVALI consortium and CSC.
The school takes place at Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, Finland. It is conveniently located in the Helsinki metropolitan area. The near vicinity of the capital city is not visible, however - the venue is in a nature preservation area that resembles Finland's nature in its best.
The United States is an Arctic nation, one of only eight such nations worldwide that are responsible for the stewardship of a region undergoing dramatic environmental, social, and economic changes. The implications of these changes demand a fresh look at how the Federal Government and its partners address management challenges in the region.
The University of Alaska Fairbanks announces that applications are now being accepted for an 11-day spring field course entitled "Field techniques in interdisciplinary sea-ice research". The course is open to open to graduate students in earth, environmental, marine and biological sciences and engineering and will be taught at UIC-NARL in Barrow, Alaska 8-18 May 2013.
Organizers of the international conference entitled "Palaeo-Arctic Spatial and Temporal (PAST) Gateways" announce registration and call for abstracts. The conference will convene 13-17 May 2013 in St.Petersburg, Russia.
Welcome to the Meeting of the Americas, a Joint Assembly that covers topics in all areas of the geophysical sciences. Join your colleagues, including Earth and space scientists, educators, students, and other leaders at the Cancun Center in Cancun, Mexico, 14–17 May 2013 as they connect to present groundbreaking research. Sandy beaches and turquoise waters together with Mexican hospitality make this a unique site for another successful Joint Assembly!
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:
