Save the date for the first Toolik All Scientists Meeting. The goal of this meeting is to promote collaboration and synthesis among researchers working at Toolik Field Station and others working on Alaska's North Slope. It is an opportunity to think broadly about exciting science questions, present your research and learn what others are doing, and develop plans for collaborating on research and synthesis. The first day of the All Scientists meeting will be devoted to research presentations (a mix of oral presentations and posters).

The 2017 Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS), Alaska’s premier marine research conference, will take place on January 23-27, 2017. AMSS brings together scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and interested public to discuss the latest and greatest marine research being conducted in Alaskan waters. Research will be presented by geographic theme, including the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea & Aleutian Islands, and the Arctic. Topic areas will include ocean physics, fishes and invertebrates, seabirds, marine mammals, local traditional knowledge and more.

White Space - Blue Frontiers
When: 
Sun, 01/22/2017 to Fri, 01/27/2017
Where: 
Tromsø, Norway

Organizers announce a call for abstracts for the Arctic Frontiers Science Conference entitled "White Space - Blue Frontiers".

Arctic Frontiers is an international arena on sustainable development in the Arctic. The conference addresses the management of opportunities and
challenges to achieve viable economic growth with societal and environmental sustainability. Arctic Frontiers 2017 will discuss the gaps in our knowledge about the Arctic oceans and the role these will play in the future.

The science section will address four main themes:

Where: 
Seattle, WA

Abstract submission for the 14th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography, held as part of the 97th Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) is now open. Submissions on all aspects of polar weather, climate, and oceanography are being solicited. The conference will include invited and contributed oral and poster presentations, joint sessions between other relevant AMS conferences, and activities for early career polar scientists on behalf of the Association for Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS).

When: 
Mon, 01/23/2017 to Wed, 01/25/2017
Where: 
Bethel, Maine

The purpose of the meeting is:

When: 
Tue, 01/24/2017 to Wed, 01/25/2017
Where: 
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

We will convene a 1 1/2 day workshop at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in January 2017 (directly following PARCA 2017), with the purpose of defining a path forward for a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) observation network in Greenland. There are many means for determining Greenland ice mass loss, but almost all rely on some form of satellite positioning, generally using GNSS or its subset Global Positioning System (GPS). Thus a network of geodetic-quality GNSS receivers is desirable.
