The Arctic Change and Its Influence on Mid-Latitude Climate and Weather Workshop will take place on February 1-3, 2017 in Washington, DC.
The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.
Join us for a PolarConnect Event with Nell Kemp and the research team! This is a real-time event with teacher Nell Kemp and the researchers looking at the tundra ecosystems. They will be sharing experiences and observations of their work from Toolik Field Station and Healy, Alaska. This will be a 1 hour event with a Q&A at the end for teachers, students, friends and family. Learn more about Deep Roots and read the latest journals here:
We would like to announce the Call for Abstracts for the SCAR 2016 Open Science Conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 22-26 August 2016. This conference will focus on Antarctica in the Global Earth System: From the Poles to the Tropics and how the changes that we are currently seeing in Antarctica will affect the rest of the world. It is sponsored by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, Malaysia together with the Sultan Mizan Antarctic Research Foundation and the National Antarctic Research Centre, together with SCAR.
The 2016 WAIS Workshop will be held in Sterling, Virginia, in the Washington, DC, area at Algonkian Regional Park. This multidisciplinary Earth system science workshop will focus on the distinctive glaciological, geological, oceanographic, and climatic aspects of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Registration for the 2016 WAIS Workshop is open! For details about the meeting and to register, see the WAIS site above.
Russian State Hydrometeorological University, St. Petersburg, Russia
On behalf of the International Center for Environmental Management of Enclosed Coastal Seas (International EMECS Center) and "Sea Coasts" Working Group of the RAS Council on World Ocean, the Organizing Committee of the Russian State Hydrometeorological University (RSHU), P.P.Shirshov Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IO RAS) and A.P.Karpinsky Russian Geological Research Institute (VSEGEI) would like to welcome you and your colleagues to EMECS 11 - SeaCoastsXXVI Joint Conference "Managing Risks to Coastal Regions and Communities in a Changing World".
International Research and Practice Conference "Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials" will be organised for the fifth time. It is a large-scale event, which every year becomes larger and more important. In 2012 International Research and Practice Conference was held for the first time in the format of International Summer School for young scientists "Nanotechnology: from fundamental research to innovations".
Finnish Meteorological Institute, Helsinki, Finland
The in-situ snow broadband albedo is automatically measured in many stations that monitor the surface radiation budget, and is used (a) to test snow albedo parameterizations, (b) to validate remote sensing snow albedo products, (c) as input parameter for snow, hydrological, and atmospheric models, and (d) for climate studies.
Uncertainty in Satellite-Derived Sea Ice Extent Estimates
Online: 10:00 to 11:00 am AKDT, 2:00 to 3:00 pm EDT
The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces an open webinar entitled "Uncertainty in Satellite-Derived Sea Ice Extent Estimates."
This webinar is designed for the sea ice research community and others interested in information about the uncertainty in sea ice extent estimates from remotely-sensed data. While this is an open event, attendees should be aware that the discussions will largely be of a technical nature. The speaker will be Walt Meier, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
