The Arctic-FROST research coordination network is pleased to announce the availability of travel awards for Early Career Researchers to attend The Fifth Arctic-FROST network meeting and Early Career Scholars Workshop.
The course provides a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions. Topics include: continuum mechanics, sliding and hydraulics, numerical modelling, polar meteorology, ice-ocean interaction, ice cores, interaction of ice sheets with the solid earth, etc. The course is meant for Ph.D. students that work on a glaciology-related climate project. Some places are available for junior scientists.
The next Karthaus course will be held from 11 to 22 September 2018 in Karthaus (northern Italy).
The 2018 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference will be joined in the organisation and hosting of the event by the Estonian Environment Agency, the national provider for weather and climate services in Estonia.

The ARCUS Arctic Research Seminar Series brings leading Arctic researchers to Washington, D.C. to share the latest findings and what they mean for decision-making. These seminars will be of interest to federal agency officials, congressional staff, non-governmental organizations, associations, and the public.
Available online or in-person at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, 407 IARC/Akasofu building
The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for October and the early winter season.
Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
The week will feature the "Second International Conference on Subseasonal to Seasonal Prediction (S2S)", the "Second International Conference on Seasonal to Decadal Prediction (S2D)" as well as a joint segment addressing coming issues.
The 25th annual West Antarctic Ice Sheet Workshop will be held this September at Stony Point Center in Stony Point, NY, followed seamlessly by the Thwaites Glacier Program meeting. The WAIS Workshop begins Sunday late afternoon, September 16 and ends with a 1-1/2 day section on Thwaites and Pine Island Glacier and the planned Thwaites Glacier
Arctic Domain Awareness Center at the University of Alaska and Trent University, Peterborough Ontario, jointly welcome participants to the North American Arctic Maritime and Environmental Security Workshop, University of Alaska Anchorage, Gorsuch Commons Center. The purpose of the event is to gather Arctic minded experts from government, operators, academics and industry principally from Canada and the U.S. to collaboratively assess security and provide solutions focused on the North American Arctic maritime region, including environmental and human security.
The 2018 Polar CORDEX Meeting is organized with the financial support from the funds of the Leading National Research Centre (KNOW) received by the Centre for Polar Studies for the period 2014–18, the World Climate Research Programme, and the Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Project.
The Arctic is changing rapidly and is increasingly high on the international agenda. It is our joint responsibility to protect the fragile Arctic environment for future generations whilst promoting the sustainable development of the region.
In response to these developments, the European Union has developed an integrated policy on the Arctic. Engagement with Arctic stakeholders is one of the cornerstones of the EU's Arctic policy, adopted in April 2016 by the European Commission and the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
