The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Collaborations invites attendance for a webinar titled Narwhal: Revealing an Arctic Legend. This webinar will be held via Zoom Video Conferencing.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Timescales, Processes and Glacier Dynamics’ in 2018. The symposium will be held at the Lafayette Hotel in downtown Buffalo, New York on 3–8 June 2018.
Molly McCammon, Director, Alaska Ocean Observing System
University of Alaska Fairbanks, or online: 10:00-11:00am AKDT, 2:00-3:00pm EDT
Join Molly McCammon, Executive Director of the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), as she describes the latest partnerships, ocean observing projects and data products and applications produced by AOOS, the Alaska regional component of the national Integrated Ocean Observing System. Begun in 2004, AOOS is now one of the leaders in Alaska facilitating ocean observations, piloting new technologies and making the use of ocean data easier for navigation safety, emergency response, and ecosystem management.
Organizers invite applications for the 4th TraitTrain International Plant Functional Traits Course (TraitTrain4). This course will take place 16-27 July 2018 at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS), Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway.
This course is intended for graduate students, M.Sc. and PhD, and will offer hands-on experience with collecting and exploring plant functional traits data in a real-life field research project setting. The course will also include an introduction to the use of plant trait data in climate-change research and ecosystem ecology.
International Conference on Geology & Earth Science will be held during May 2-4, 2018 at Rome, Italy. Geoscience-2018 is an excellent platform for professionals and who are working in the field.
The annual conference creates a platform for experts interaction, simultaneously with networking opportunities and also provides an opportunity to explore the innovative ideas of the other communities, companies and associations.
The Arctic Data Center invites applications for their 2018 Data Science Training for Arctic Research. This workshop will convene 13-17 August 2018 in Santa Barbara, California.
The Arctic Data Center provides training in data science and data management. These are critical skills for the stewardship of data, software, and many other research products that are preserved at the Arctic Data Center. A goal of this center is to advance data archiving and promote reproducible science and data reuse.
The cold regions of the Earth – Arctic, Antarctica and the high mountain ranges – are exposed to fundamental changes due to global warming and direct anthropogenic pressures. The Arctic sea ice as well as glaciers in Greenland and Alpine mountains are not only losing huge areas, but also habitats for many unique organisms depending on the cold habitats. The terrestrial permafrost is thawing leading to increased greenhouse gas emissions.
Online and in person at 1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C., 12:00-1:00pm EDT
The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) announces the next Arctic Research Seminar featuring Matthew Jull from the University of Virginia. The event will be held in the ARCUS D.C. office at 1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C.
This seminar will also be available as a webinar live-stream for those unable to attend in person. Instructions for accessing the event online will be sent to webinar registrants prior to the event.
This NSF-sponsored workshop will assess economic, environmental, and social impacts of Arctic change on New England and establish convergence research initiatives to prepare for, adapt to, and capitalize on these effects. Shipping routes through an ice-free Northwest Passage in combination with modifications to ocean circulation and regional climate patterns linked to Arctic ice melt will affect trade, fisheries, tourism, coastal ecology, air and water quality, animal migration, and demographics not only in the Arctic but also in lower latitude coastal regions such as New England.

Communities in Alaska’s Arctic and Subarctic regions are at risk from environmental threats including flooding, erosion, and thawing permafrost. However, the character and relative magnitude of those risks can vary from community to community, and it is not always clear which environmental threats pose the greatest amount of risk. This presentation describes an ongoing project being conducted by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the USACE Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, and the US Army Corps of Engineers Alaska District.
