The changing state of the Arctic Ocean is opening up the region to new interests and added stressors, creating new challenges for marine resource management in the Arctic. Building on a January 2015 conference on Arctic governance that was convened in collaboration with the UCI Newkirk Center; representatives from consulates of Canada, Norway, Sweden, and Finland; and U.S. government officials, this roundtable will bring together national and international Arctic experts to discuss existing and emerging issues in Arctic marine governance.
The EGU General Assembly 2016 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.

Rain on snow (ROS) events are fairly rare in Alaska but have broad impacts ranging from economic losses to hazardous driving conditions to difficult caribou foraging due to ice formation on the snow. While rare, these events have recently increased in frequency in Alaska and may continue to increase under the projected warming climate. Dynamically downscaled data are now available for Alaska based on historical reanalysis for 1979-2013, while CMIP5 historical and future scenario downscaling are in progress.

APECS invites you to register for the Science Communication Webinar with Kristin Timm "Meeting your Outreach Goals with Strategic Science Communication".
Kristin Timm is the Science Communications Lead at the Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning (SNAP) at the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and she will share her experience on this key topic with the audience.
We are pleased to announce that Korea Polar Research Institute will hold the 22nd International Symposium on Polar Sciences in Incheon, the Republic of Korea on May 10-11, 2016 and that registration for the symposium has opened.
Sue Wotkyns, of ITEP, with the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium will offer a 3-day course on climate change planning for tribes in Anchorage, April 19-21, 2016.
The course provides an introduction to planning for climate change impacts, with examples of tribes that have been going through the adaptation planning process. The course is intended for tribal environmental and natural resource professionals.
The National Science Foundation has made a 5-year, $5.9 million award to a national partnership, led by the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) at the University of California Santa Barbara, to develop and curate the NSF Arctic Data Center, a new archive for Arctic scientific data as well as other related research documents. The Arctic Data Center will be assuming operations for ACADIS, and there is a detailed transition plan in place to ensure that data and metadata move over smoothly, and that community support is seamless.
USAPECS is organizing a webinar series for Spring 2016 (April - June) focused on how to best share your science.
Boiling Down Your Message webinar:
Creating scientific graphics can be difficult, so come learn some simple tips and tricks from a dataviz expert on composition, color, and design to transform your figures into effective, informative, and beautiful scientific visualizations with your own data! Rob will also focus on the importance of using and choosing the right colors in your figures.
We are excited to invite you to the first UArctic Congress, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, from September 12-16, 2016. It will be hosted by Saint Petersburg State University and will feature Science and Meeting sections, including:
