Arctic and Sub-Arctic Ocean Observations: Where do we go?
When: 
Mon, 03/20/2017 to Wed, 03/22/2017
Where: 
Sopot, Poland

We are grateful to the IOPAN, the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, to host the workshop.

New Arctic and sub-Arctic observational programs are upcoming, enhancing ongoing activities. These focus on an Arctic observing system (e.g. INTAROS, AOS), high-latitude/mid-latitude interaction (e.g. APPLICATE, BLUE ACTION), prediction capabilities (e.g. YOPP, SIPN) or the drifting observatory MOSAIC, to name a few. At the same time we have seen the cessation of a number of long-term observational programs in the Arctic and sub-Arctic.

When: 
Wed, 03/22/2017

The workshop will be held on July 9-13, 2017, at the University of Maryland, with an optional visit to the National Science Foundation on July 14.

Organizers of the 3rd Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) International Online Conference 2017 announce a call for
abstract submissions. This year's theme is entitled, "Outside the Box: Encouraging alternative solutions for undertaking and communicating polar research."

Life at the Extremes: Resilience, Adaptation and Application Potential
When: 
Fri, 03/17/2017
Where: 
Online

The International Symposium on Polar Sciences has been held annually ever since the conception of Korea’s Antarctic research schemes. This Symposium not only serves as an international forum bringing polar scientists together to exchange views and ideas, but also provides an opportunity to discuss collaborative research with peers and colleagues. Marking the 23rd series of this symposium, this year’s theme is “Life at the Extremes: Resilience, Adaptation and Application Potential”.

Towards the Future: Trans-regional Cooperation in the Arctic: Development and Protection
When: 
Fri, 03/17/2017

The 5th China-Nordic Arctic Cooperation Symposium, hosted by Dalian Maritime University in collaboration with Polar Research Institute of China, will take place in Dalian, a port city in Northern China, from May 24 to 26, with the conference theme of “Towards the Future: Trans-regional Cooperation in the Arctic: Development and Protection”.

Cold-region hydrology in non-stationary world

Where: 
Online

Organizers announce a call for abstracts for the 21st Northern Research Basins (NRB) Symposium and Workshop entitled, "Cold-region hydrology in non-stationary world." This symposium and workshop will convene 6-12 August 2017 in Yakutsk, Russia.

International Workshop to Reconcile Northern Permafrost Region Methane Budgets
When: 
Tue, 03/07/2017 to Thu, 03/09/2017
Where: 
Hyatt at Olive 8: 1635 8th Ave., Seattle, Washington

Workshop participation is by invitation only.

The International Workshop to Reconcile Northern Permafrost Region Methane Budgets will take place 7-9 March 2017 in Seattle, WA. The workshop will bring together three research groups focused on methane from terrestrial sources (primarily wetlands and lakes), coastal sources, and inferences of fluxes based on atmospheric methane concentrations.

Team Science as Collaborative Cognition in Complex Contexts
When: 
Wed, 03/08/2017
Where: 
Online: 9:00-10:00 am AKST, 1:00-2:00 pm EST

ARCUS is dedicated to connecting Arctic research across boundaries through communication, coordination, and collaboration. We are delighted to host an exclusive members-only webinar (open only to ARCUS individual members and organizational member affilliates) featuring a discussion with Dr. Stephen M. Fiore on the science of team science. Since Arctic research is often necessarily cross-institutional, cross-disciplinary, cross-sector, and international, Dr. Fiore can help us to better understand the underpinnings and challenges of such boundary-crossing team research.
