NOAA Research to Advance Prediction of Subseasonal to Seasonal Phenomena
In FY 2016, the MAPP program solicits research proposals to improve the understanding of predictability and the potential to advance the prediction of phenomena occurring on S2S time scales. Such phenomena include, but are not limited to, the MJO and associated midlatitude teleconnections, the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), stratospheric flow regimes, and atmospheric blocking episodes.
NOAA AMOC-Climate Linkages in the North and/or South Atlantic
In FY 2016, the Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program solicits projects that will refine the current scientific understanding of the AMOC state, variability, and change. Specifically, projects are sought that use newly deployed and existing observations in combination with modeling experiments to refine our understanding of the present and historical circulation (and related transports of heat and freshwater) in the North and/or South Atlantic. An emerging priority is to provide a more detailed characterization of AMOC flow pathways and their impact on variability.
Based on the success of the past TAMScience meeting and the interest in promoting interdisciplinary research in Antarctica you are invited to participate in the upcoming NSF-sponsored Interdisciplinary Antarctic Earth Science Meeting (ANT-Sci). The meeting is intended to provide a forum for recent Antarctic research, to facilitate the exchange of information, and to encourage interdisciplinary research in the Earth Sciences.
Organizers invite participation in the upcoming NSF-sponsored Interdisciplinary Antarctic Earth Science Meeting (ANT-Sci). It will be held 20-22 September 2015 on the Sylvan Dale Ranch in Loveland, Colorado.
The ongoing global process of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) contributes significantly to present-day rates of sea level change, causes temporal changes in the Earth’s gravitational field, and is evident in the displacement of the Earth’s surface.
Organizers announce that registration is currently available for the 21st Integrating Arctic Plant and Microbial Ecology (ITEX) Meeting. It will be convened 16-18 September 2015 in Uppsala, Sweden.
The conference is open to all scientists and students with an interest in Arctic and alpine ecology. All areas of ecological research in both terrestrial and aquatic environments in alpine or polar regions are welcome. A special focus at this meeting is linking above and below-ground processes under climate change.
Registration and session proposal deadline: 1 June 2015.
