The 70th Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held at the Active Learning Centre in, Huntsville, ON, Canada 4-6 June, 2013. The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology. This year’s general theme is “SNOW AND ICE UNDER A CHANGING CLIMATE”. The ESC has only plenary (paper and poster viewing) sessions, allowing time to view and discuss the research of each participant. You are all invited on an afternoon local historical train trip.
Organizers of the 20th international scientific symposium on The Integration of Archaeological and Ethnographic Research announce an invitation for papers and panels. The symposium will take place from 27 May - 2 June 2013 in Irkutsk, Eastern Siberia, Russia.
Past and present changes in the mass balance of the Earth's glaciers and ice caps induce present-day deformation of the solid Earth on a range of spatial scales, from the very local to global. Of principal interest are geodetic observations that validate, or may be assimilated into, models of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) and/or constrain models of present-day ice mass change through measurements of elastic rebound. Using geometric measurements alone, elastic and viscoelastic deformations cannot be separated without additional models or observations.
Registration is now open for a variety of field courses and teacher trainings offered by Alaska Geographic. The multi-day field courses explore Alaska's national parks, forests, and refuges, and are available during summer 2013.
A recently-held Arctic transportation workshop in Iceland highlighted the need to better understand private sector transportation infrastructure and assets, recognizing industry's role in the responsible development of resources, response and supportive infrastructure.
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.
