Arctic Frontiers Science 2020 takes place 26-30 January 2020 in Tromsø, Norway.

Arctic Frontiers Science 2020 will address the following themes:

  • Arctic Food Security
  • Knowledge-based development in the Arctic
  • Disruptive technologies
  • Local or Global Arctic? Multi-scaled considerations of connections and remoteness in climate-impacted communities

On behalf of the Arctic Frontiers Science Committees, we have great pleasure in inviting you to submit one or more abstracts to any of the four themes.

STEM at the Poles! PolarTREC (Teachers and Researchers Exploring and Collaborating) is currently accepting applications from both educators and researchers for educator research experiences. For 2020-2021, the program will be accepting applications from both U.S. informal science educators as well as formal U.S. classroom teachers (teaching in grades 6-12).

When: 
Thu, 10/03/2019 to Sun, 10/06/2019
Where: 
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The Inuit Studies Conference (ISC) is a multidisciplinary and international conference that brings together university researchers and students, as well as professionals, directors, teachers, decision-makers, etc. from Inuit organizations, institutions, and governments. It is the largest academic conference in the world about Inuit peoples and territories. The conference also includes cultural and artistic activities of interest to the general public.

When: 
Fri, 10/04/2019 to Sat, 10/05/2019
Where: 
Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon

We invite you to join us to share your recent results, discuss current ideas, and build future collaborations within the broader world of glaciological research. The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science at Oregon State University comprises a breadth of scientists working in polar and high mountain environments and this meeting will offer an opportunity to see how glaciers interact interact with other landscape processes.

When: 
Thu, 10/03/2019 to Fri, 10/04/2019
Where: 
Umeå, Sweden

The European Commission, the European External Action Service, and the Government of Sweden will jointly organize a high-level EU Arctic Forum in Umeå, Sweden.

High Representative/Vice President Federica Mogherini, Commissioner Karmenu Vella, and the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström will host the event.

The EU Arctic Forum will bring together key Arctic players and stakeholders to assess recent developments in the region and to discuss the new challenges ahead.

Where: 
Copenhagen, Denmark

Ice drills are crucial to access ice for climate research and other studies of the water and basal conditions under glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets. The ice related research especially related to understand the past and present climate will improve our ability to predict the impacts under future climate changes. New techniques are rapidly evolving within ice drills and include rapid access drills, replicate drilling and thermal and hot water drilling.

Haldeman 41 (Kreindler Conference Hall), Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire: 4:30-6:00pm

Dr. Perovich's research interest is understanding the Arctic system and its role in global climate change. The central focus of his research is simple to state: where does all the sunlight go? More precisely, how does the incident solar radiation interact with sea ice and snow? This simple statement belies the rich complexity and importance of the topic. The interaction of solar radiation with snow and sea ice is intimately interrelated with the physical and morphological properties of snow and ice and forcing from the atmosphere and ocean.

The 9th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) will be held at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland, from 03 - 05 February 2020.

The cryosphere of the Earth is undergoing dramatic changes. Glaciers are retreating at accelerated rate and snow cover distribution and duration is changing with many significant side-effects (run-off, permafrost, albedo, etc.). Remote Sensing can provide the required data to study these changes of the cryosphere.

Where: 
Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, DC, and online: 9:00am - 12:00pm EDT

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the leading global body on climate science. On September 25, it will release its first-ever Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate. More than 100 scientists from 80 countries assessed the latest scientific knowledge about how climate change is impacting the ocean, coastal, polar, and mountain ecosystems, and the communities that depend on them.

When: 
Mon, 09/30/2019

The next SnowHydro Conference will be held in Bolzano, Italy from 28th to 31st January, 2020.

Snow is an important component of the hydrologic cycle. The seasonal storage of water in the snowpack may last over months, and its delayed release is a major factor in guaranteeing a reliable water supply for ecosystems and human needs during dry periods. On the other hand, rapid snowmelt can cause destruction through sudden floods, mostly in combination with rainfall.
