The course provides a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions. The course is meant for Ph.D. students that work on (or will soon start working on) a glaciology-related climate project. A few places are available for junior scientists.
Online and at the University of Alaska Fairbanks: 12:00 to 1:00 pm AKDT, 4:00 to 5:00 pm EDT
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a webinar entitled "National Weather Service Alaska Climate Forecast Briefings, September 2016." The primary speaker will be Rick Thoman, National Weather Service Alaska Region.
On 22 September 2016, during the APECS International Polar Week Autumn, we organize an OPEN social and networking event for young scientists with an interest in polar research.
BSc, MSc, PhD, Postdoc and other young scientists are welcome!
Our aim is to get an overview of the polar research taking place in Göteborg and to stimulate interdisciplinary exchange and networking. The meeting will include oral presentations and a poster session accompanied by ‘fika’. In the evening, you are welcome to join us and continue with an informal social activities and dinner.
The U.S. Association of Polar Early Career Scientist (USAPECS) announces the virtual Polar Film Festival in celebration of Polar Week 2016.
Organizers have assembled a set of short films, and some longer ones, around a set of four themes: the cryosphere, polar biology and ecology, polar regions in the global context, and the human dimension. Each night scientists with relevant expertise will be watching the films and available to answer questions via Twitter using #PolarFilmFest.
The WIHAH conference is bringing together Alaskan, U.S., and international engineers, health experts, researchers, community members, policymakers, and innovators to discuss health benefits, challenges and innovations associated with making running water and sewer in remote northern communities safe, affordable and sustainable. A conference proceedings publication and a summary report of the meeting will be produced. This conference will consist of expert speaker and poster presentation sessions, along with selected innovative technical demonstrations.
Online and at the University of Alaska Fairbanks: 10:00 to 11:00 am AKDT, 2:00 to 3:00 pm EDT
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a webinar entitled "Dynamical downscaling for Alaska: what is it and how to use it?" The webinar will be presented by Rick Lader and Peter Bieniek, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Teachers and researchers interested in learning more about participating in PolarTREC (Teachers and Researchers Exploring and Collaborating) are encouraged to participate in an informational webinar (web seminar), scheduled for Monday, 19 September, at 2:30 pm Alaska Daylight Time (3:30 pm PDT, 4:30 pm MDT, 5:30 pm CDT, 6:30 pm EDT).
As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a new advanced Cryosphere Training Course devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from ESA and operational EO Missions (e.g. the Sentinels) for science and applications development.
