This is a three part meeting: 1) to advance efforts by the International Snow Working Group-Remote Sensing (iSWGR) in promoting snow remote sensing efforts through research initiatives and education, 2) to continue planning for a large NASA (and possibly international) snow remote sensing field effort (SnowX), and 3) to educate the community about the potential of the ASO airborne snow observatory operated by JPL.

You’re invited to attend the public release of Next Generation Earth System Prediction: Strategies for Subseasonal to Seasonal Forecasts, a new consensus report that identifies opportunities to improve forecasting of weather, ocean, and other environmental conditions weeks to months ahead. The report presents a 10-year research agenda to accelerate progress in the nation’s subseasonal to seasonal forecasting capabilities to help support decision making.
The International Glaciological Society will hold a second International Symposium on ‘Interactions of Ice Sheets and Glaciers with the Ocean’ in 2016. The symposium will be held at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, and is a follow-on to the successful 2011 IGS symposium on the same theme, which brought together 194 delegates from nearly 20 countries and resulted in the publication of 36 peer-reviewed research articles cited over 650 times since 2012.
Indigenous Scholarship in the North: Decolonizing Methods, Models and Practices in Social Science Research
Wed, 03/23/2016 to Fri, 03/25/2016
Fairbanks workshop aims to explore recent advances and innovations in indigenous science and scholarship in the circumpolar north and its neighbors. The workshop will bring together indigenous experts and researchers from diverse academic and cultural backgrounds to explore the role and contributions of indigenous frameworks and knowledge systems in advancing fields of science and informing global solutions.
We are pleased to announce that Korea Polar Research Institute will hold the 22nd International Symposium on Polar Sciences in Incheon, the Republic of Korea on May 10-11, 2016 and that registration for the symposium has opened.

The National Climate Assessment (NCA) and associated assessment activities are giving increased attention to evaluating risks of climate change (including both likelihoods and anticipated consequences of climate-related events), rather than mainly cataloguing recent and projected future impacts.
EarthCube is a community-driven activity sponsored through a partnership between the NSF Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) and the Directorate for Computer & Information Science & Engineering (CISE) Division of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (ACI) to transform research in the academic geosciences community. EarthCube aims to create a well-connected and facile environment to share data and knowledge in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner, thus accelerating our ability to understand and predict the Earth system.
Humanity is reliant upon the physical resources and natural systems of the Earth for the provision of food, energy, and water. It is becoming imperative that we determine how society can best integrate across the natural and built environments to provide for a growing demand for food, water and energy while maintaining appropriate ecosystem services. Factors contributing to stresses in the food, energy, and water (FEW) systems include increasing regional and social pressures and governance issues as result of land use change, climate variability, and heterogeneous resource distribution.
