Ríma B, Harpa First Level, Harpa Conference Center , Reykjavík, Iceland
Time: 3:30-5pm GMT
The Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and the Icelandic Centre for Research (RANNÍS) will co-convene a breakout session titled "Essential Science for Informed Decision-Making in the Changing Arctic" at this year's Arctic Circle Assembly being held 7-9 October in Reykjavík, Iceland.
The FRISP meeting is for scientists working with various aspects of ice shelf processes meeting in an informal setting and exchanging ideas, results and field plans. This year there will be a special focus on under ice observations, including information and feedback with the SOOS under ice working group presently being formed. The meeting includes an APECS mentor panel discussion, prizes for best student presentations, and a guided excursion to the historical station Bornö situated in the Gullmar fjord, famous for its geology and marine life. Travel support for students is provided.
The 2016 WAIS Workshop will be held in Sterling, Virginia, in the Washington, DC, area at Algonkian Regional Park. This multidisciplinary Earth system science workshop will focus on the distinctive glaciological, geological, oceanographic, and climatic aspects of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Registration for the 2016 WAIS Workshop is open! For details about the meeting and to register, see the WAIS site above.
Arctic Ambitions V conference focuses on commercial opportunities in the Arctic, such as engineering, construction, architecture, natural resource development, environmental services, maritime shipping and logistics, and international trade.
Arctic research spans disciplinary, institutional, national, and sector boundaries in pursuit of improved understanding and decision making for this vital region. In order to work effectively across these boundaries, it is important to focus on effective communication, coordination, and collaboration. This interactive session will explore what is being done, and what could be done, to bridge boundaries and advance research. For example, the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) is an
Join us for a PolarConnect Event with PolarTREC teacher Cara Pekarcik and the team studying Southern Ocean Diatoms.
This is a real-time event with Boston teacher Cara Pekarcik and the researcher team looking at Southern Ocean Diatoms. They will be sharing experiences and observations of their work aboard the R/V N.B. Palmer in the Southern Ocean off the tip of the Antarctic peninsula.

We are pleased to announce the first IGLOOS (Interactions at the interface of glaciology, oceanography and sea ice) Workshop to be held at the School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University on the 28-30th September 2016. The workshop aims to foster new collaborations within Wales and beyond, focused on challenges in cryosphere-ocean interaction science in a changing climate.
Funds are available for projects that protect, restore, or enhance fish and aquatic habitats or otherwise directly support habitat-related priorities of the Southwest Alaska Salmon Partnership. Proposals are due September 30th, 2016. The announcement and scoring criteria can be found at the link above.
