Following the first edition of this congress, held in Lisbon (Portugal) in 2013 and the second edition organized in Graz (Austria) in 2015, the third edition of STRATI has been assigned by the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) to Italy, a country with a long historical tradition in Stratigraphy since the 17th century. Some milestones in the history of Stratigraphy were added in Italy by outstanding scientists such as Niels Stensen and Giovanni Arduino.
This Summer School will provide Ph.D. students and junior scientists specializing in sea level research with a basic introduction to the dynamics of current and future sea level change and to state-of-the-art tools to measure and project it. The different contributors to global and regional sea level change will be presented by world-leading experts. The school has a strong component on “hands-on” learning, with practical exercises on the observation and modelling of sea level change, its contributors, and forcing mechanisms.
Office of Polar Programs National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Office of Polar Programs invites proposals for their Antarctic Artists and Writers (AAW) Program. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.
The program provides opportunities for artists and writers, from promising early career practitioners to longstanding professionals, to make observations at U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP) research stations, field camps, and/or aboard research vessels.
The fifth Sea Level and Coastal Change (SLaCC) field meeting will take place in Devon and Cornwall, United Kingdom between Sunday 1st and Wednesday 4th September 2019. The meeting series will bring together scientists working in sea level and coastal research.
Attendance is open across all career stages and to all SLaCC related disciplines (including: palaeo studies, archaeology, modern processes and geomorphology, past and future sea-level change, coastal communities, adaptation and resilience).
Under the aegis of the upcoming International Year of Indigenous Languages declared by the United Nations in 2019, the Institute of Humanitarian Research and Problems of Indigenous Peoples of the North, Russian Academy of Sciences, International Arctic Social Sciences Association (IASSA) and the Association of Indigenous Peoples of the North of Sakha Republic will hold an International Scientific and Practical Conference “Indigenous Languages and Sustainable Development in the Arctic”.
This workshop is organized annually by members of the WAMC Planning Committee across the globe. The WAMC brings together those with research and operational/logistical interests in Antarctic meteorology and forecasting and related disciplines. As in the past, the annual activities and status of the Antarctic Meteorological Research Center (AMRC), Automatic Weather Station (AWS), and Antarctic Mesoscale Prediction System (AMPS) efforts will be addressed, and feedback and results from their user communities will be solicited.
AntClim21 would like to announce an upcoming workshop on CMIP6 21st century projections and predictions for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. The aim is to help ensure that the Antarctic and Southern Ocean climate science communities make a significant contribution to the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6).
Is the United States appropriately resourced and positioned for Russia’s increased military presence in the Arctic as well as a growing Chinese economic and scientific presence?
Online: 8:30-9:30am AKDT, 12:30-1:30pm EDT
Please join us for an in-depth conversation with Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support on the Senate Armed Services Committee, to discuss the recent release of the June 2019 Department of Defense Arctic Strategy. Is the United States appropriately resourced and positioned for Russia’s increased military presence in the Arctic as well as a growing Chinese economic and scientific presence? Or has the United States accepted that it will be limited in its future options to access the Arctic, in an era when U.S.
