The Arctic Sea Ice Prediction Stakeholders Workshop will be held in conjunction with the Arctic Frontiers Conference in Tromso, Norway. This workshop will bring together sea ice stakeholders and forecasters to:
The Arctic Funders Collaborative (AFC), in partnership with the Tamalpais Trust and Tides Canada Foundations, invite Expressions of Interest from next generation Indigenous leaders to serve as Advisors. These Advisors will design and lead the new Arctic Indigenous Fund. Expressions of Interest are invited from next generation Indigenous leaders from across the circumpolar Arctic and sub-Arctic, including Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland, and Sapmi.
In 2017 Norway set out its vision for a peaceful, innovative and sustainable north and the policies for achieving it, in Norway’s Arctic Strategy – between geopolitics and social development. Following a presentation of this strategy, the Northern Sparsely Populated Area co-operation will present its priorities for EU investments in the Arctic post 2020. The NSPA network represents the northernmost countries of Sweden, Finland and Norway. The event will be rounded off with a Q&A session.
The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC), chaired by the National Science Foundation, is seeking comment from the public on how best to revise and strengthen the Principles for the Conduct of Research in the Arctic (https://www.nsf.gov/geo/opp/arctic/conduct.jsp). These Principles were adopted in 1990 by the federal agencies that participate in IARPC and published in 1990. Since 1990, community engagement and Arctic research have advanced both in theory and in practice, necessitating a review and update of the current Principles.
The 14th International Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Ice (PCI- 2018) will take place during the 2nd week in January 2018. This international symposium series dates back 55 years and is devoted to research on all aspects of ice. The broad field of topics is linked by the focus on fundamentals.
CUAHSI is pleased to partner with the University of Washington, U.S. Forest Service, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Colorado Boulder, and Universite de Sherbrooke to offer the Snow Measurement Field School, a 3-day field school on making and analyzing snow measurements.
The EGU General Assembly 2018 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, Austria 8-13 April 2018.
This meeting aims to bring together researchers across the broad range of sub-disciplines within Quaternary science. This will enable the sharing of ideas, approaches to data-model inter-comparisons including dealing with uncertainties, and the dissemination of research across the discipline. There have been major recent advances in Quaternary research in both data and modelling approaches and the conference aims to highlight these.
