The Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC) announces a call for abstracts for an international workshop entitled "Opportunities to Apply Remote Sensing in Boreal/Arctic Wildfire Management and Science." The workshop will convene 4-6 April 2017 at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, in Fairbanks, Alaska.
The Alaska Ocean Acidification Network is hosting a 2-day workshop in Anchorage, Alaska, inviting a broad audience across the state interested in ocean acidification issues.
The aim of this workshop is to educate the broader Alaska community on the processes and consequences of OA, create connections between researchers and stakeholders, and develop new ideas and partnerships to enhance monitoring and community engagement. A report on the state of the science in Alaska will be produced after the workshop, as well as a set of recommendations to help guide the Alaska OA Network.
The 6th Annual Meeting of the Permafrost Carbon Network will take place on Sunday, December 11 (9:00 am -5:00 pm) before AGU at the Parc 55 Hotel (55 Cyril Magnin Street, San Francisco, California, USA, 94102).
In the morning of December 11th, we will provide updates on previous, ongoing, and new synthesis activities. The afternoon is dedicated to break out discussions on ongoing and new synthesis activities. Lunch will be provided for registered participants and a preliminary agenda is attached to this email and can also be found online at the link above.
Times-series analysis is the future for environmental sciences to understand natural processes and their dynamics. To support these technical developments, the “Time series analysis in environmental science and applications to climate change” will be held in Tromsø from 8-11 November 2016, with the objective of promoting transfer of knowledge between researchers from various environmental fields. These objectives will be achieved by both training courses (8-9/11) and conference (10-11/11) presentations based on application examples and actual case studies from field experiments.
Online or in person at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Akasofu Building, Room 407
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a webinar entitled, "Current Coastal Change Research/Management Projects and Priority Information Needs from Cook Inlet through Southeastern Alaska." The webinar will be presented by Michaela Swanson of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
2016 is the 20th Anniversary of the Sitka WhaleFest, a unique science festival to celebrate the marine life! The core of the festival, is a unique science symposium blending local knowledge and scientific inquiry concerning the rich marine environment of our northern oceans. Surrounded by community and cultural activities, the weekend events include lectures, marine wildlife cruises with beautiful scenery, a marine-themed artisan market, music, local foods, art show, interactive student sessions, and a fun run/walk. Come to Sitka WhaleFest and celebrate with us!

Introduction to Qingdao WCO-2016
The main theme of WCO-2016 is Innovation, Integration, Cooperation and Sustainability. Ocean is the common heritage of mankind. We need to protect and conserve it for posterity and sustenance. We believe the WCO-2016 will bring about enormous benefits as well as open up a new and broader pathway for information and experience exchange between China and the rest of the world.
Join us for a PolarConnect event with teacher Maggie Kane the NASA Operation IceBridge Team. We will be hosting the PolarConnect event from Chile. Read more about the research and what Maggie is learning here:
Organizers announce the Forum for Arctic Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS) 2016 School and Workshop. FAMOS is an international forum for Arctic Marine Modelers (liquid ocean + sea ice, physical/biogeochemical) and those scientists who are interested in working with these modelers (e.g., observationalists, hydrologists, meteorologists, geologists, glaciologists, biologists).
