The Arctic Data Center provides training in data science and data management. These are critical skills for the stewardship of data, software, and many other research products that are preserved at the Arctic Data Center. A goal of this center is to advance data archiving and promote reproducible science and data reuse.
We are excited to announce our EGU co-sponsored training school on “Glaciers, moraines and climate: identifying, dating and extracting paleoclimate data from evidence of past glacier change”, which will take place in Inchnadamph in the Scottish Highlands.
We are pleased to announce that Durham University will be hosting this year's UK Antarctic Science Conference on 10th-12th September 2018 (the conference will run from Monday lunchtime to Wednesday lunchtime) at Durham University, Durham, United Kingdom. The conference will include oral and poster presentations, and abstracts are invited on any aspect of Antarctic Research.
PolarTREC teacher Svea Anderson and University of Alaska researcher Donie Bret-Harte will discuss their research live from Toolik Field Station in Alaska looking at shrubs, snow and nitrogen in the Arctic. You can learn more about Svea's expedition here.
