ARCUS’ annual Arctic Research Community Reception will be held following the ARCUS Annual Meeting, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. (Central Time) on Wednesday, 13 December 2017. You are invited to join the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and the other Arctic researchers at AGU in conversation, networking, and socializing. No ticket or reservations are required. Cash bar and light appetizers provided.
The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces an open meeting on Tuesday, 12 December from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. (CST) during the 2017 American Geophysical Union (AGU) fall meetings. This meeting will provide: a discussion of the 2017 Arctic sea ice/Sea Ice Outlook season, an overview of the recently-funded "SIPN 2" project and collaborations, and opportunity for discussion and to share information on related efforts. A boxed lunch will be provided for meeting participants who RSVP by Friday, 1 December 2017.
The Permafrost Carbon Network's all scientist meeting will take place this year on Sunday, 10 December 2017, 9-5pm in New Orleans, LA (just before the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting begins). This event is free and open for all researchers working on Permafrost Carbon topics to attend. The meeting agenda and registration link will be accessible via the SEARCH website later in October.
The Role of Non-Arctic States / Actors in the Arctic Legal Order-Making
Thu, 12/07/2017 to Sat, 12/09/2017
Kobe University, Japan
The Polar Cooperation Research Centre (PCRC) is proud to announce its third international symposium. The PCRC’s distinct research approach to the Arctic is aimed at establishing and strengthening the international legal and institutional framework so as to bring stability and foreseeability in the future of the Arctic. Increasingly, the challenges faced in the Arctic can no longer be addressed or tackled only within the Arctic both geographically and functionally.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) in an Oct. 6 Dear Colleague Letter to assess the science and engineering community's needs for mid-scale research infrastructure. The information will be used to develop an infrastructure strategy, in accordance with the American Innovation and Competitiveness Act (AICA).
We are pleased to announce that abstracts and registrations are now open for Taking the Temperature of the Antarctic Continent (TACtical) Workshop March 21-23 2018 in Hobart, Australia.
The geothermal heat flux to the base of the Antarctic ice sheet is inherently difficult to measure, yet accurate estimates are necessary to better understand cryosphere dynamics. This is crucial to improve models of ice discharge and sea level change, and optimise site selection for ice core paleoclimate studies.
The Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) at the link above invites individuals or groups of individuals from the U.S. research community to submit White Papers on topics in science, engineering, and/or STEM education that are ripe for international network-to-network collaboration. Topics should hold the potential to accelerate discovery and advance research outcomes.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of International Science and Engineering (OISE) will use the white papers to inform OISE planning, including the potential need for a future program or program emphasis.
