SCRiM’s annual summer school is designed to foster opportunities for collaboration between scholars and practitioners while providing a solid foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and methods of the diverse fields participating in the network.
A key focus of the workshop will be developing a common vocabulary to help foster enhanced cross-disciplinary communication, catalyzing the potential for future research and decision support collaborations. Participants will also gain hands-on experience with key methods and tools including:
The Fulbright Scholar Program invites applications for the Fulbright Arctic Chair for U.S. Scholars grant. This three- to four-month position is open to scholars in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and will be located in Norway.
The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Collaborations invites attendance for a webinar listening session on the draft version of the Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic. This webinar will be held via Zoom Video Conferencing.

Organizers invite applications for the 4th TraitTrain International Plant Functional Traits Course (TraitTrain4).
This course is intended for graduate students, M.Sc. and PhD, and will offer hands-on experience with collecting and exploring plant functional traits data in a real-life field research project setting. The course will also include an introduction to the use of plant trait data in climate-change research and ecosystem ecology.
TraitTrain4 will address several core scientific questions with an emphasis on key skills, including:
The 13th Workshop on Antarctic Meteorology and Climate 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.
