The International Glaciological Society, the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences and the WCRP Climate and Cryosphere Project invite you to attend the 'International Symposium on The Cryosphere in a Changing Climate', due to be held from 12-17 February 2017, in Wellington, New Zealand.
The Arctic-FROST research coordination network announces the availability of travel awards for Early Career Researchers to attend The Third Arctic-FROST network meeting and Early Career Scholars Workshop on Arctic Sustainability in the Global Context.
Held once every four years, the IUCN World Conservation Congress brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia, with the goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.
The conference is intended to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas between planetary and terrestrial scientists interested in Mars polar and climate research. In recognition of the broad scope, interdisciplinary nature and strong international interest in this topic, we welcome participation of any interested scientist with relevant theoretical, experimental or field experience.
Contributions from the glaciological community on Mars polar research or terrestrial analog studies are welcome!
The University of Vienna, in cooperation with the European University in St. Petersburg is pleased to announce a call for applications for a PhD summer school (VASS) that will take place in late summer 2016. The course will take place in Vienna, Austria with a field trip to the Austrian Alps.
University of Southampton, Southampton, United Kingdom
Geography and Environment at the University of Southampton is delighted to be hosting the British Branch meeting of the International Glaciological Society.
The conference will include oral and poster presentations, spread over two days, on a wide range of snow and ice research. Registration and accommodation costs will be kept to a minimum and delegates from overseas are very much welcome to attend.
The Arctic Change and Its Influence on Mid-Latitude Climate and Weather Workshop will take place on February 1-3, 2017 in Washington, DC.
The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.
Coastal systems in transition: From a 'natural' to an 'anthropogenically-modified' state
Sun, 09/04/2016 to Wed, 09/07/2016
Welcome to ECSA’s next major symposium, ECSA 56 – Coastal systems in transition from a ‘natural’ to an ‘anthropogenically modified’ state.
Humans are drivers of and affected by global change. Human-induced global climate and regional environmental change dramatically modify the structures and functions of coastal systems driving them into a new system state. The altered resource potentials and ecosystem services then, in turn, significantly affect the livelihoods of the population.
