Plenary Talk at the Implications of a Changing Arctic on Water Resources and Agriculture in the Central U.S. Workshop
University Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Natural Resources
Sea Ice Action Team Co-Chair, Jennifer Francis, will be the plenary speaker for the Implications of a Changing Arctic on Water Resources and Agriculture in the Central U.S. workshop taking place at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's School of Natural Resources on November 10, 2015 from 7-9pm.
The Association of Canadian Universities for Northern Studies (ACUNS) will convene an interdisciplinary conference of early career scientists working on Arctic issues. The meeting, held every three years, is cross-disciplinary and diverse, and our goal is to welcome 200 to 400 international participants working on all Arctic disciplines and themes. The organizers have issued a call for abstracts, due 5/31/15, on the following topics:
We are pleased to announce the 9th Graduate Climate Conference, which will be held November 6th-8th in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
The goal of this graduate student-organized conference is to assemble a broad range of talks and posters featuring high-quality student research focused on past, present, and future climate, its changes, and their impacts. We encourage students at all stages of their graduate career to apply, and we seek abstracts on climate research from a variety of disciplines from the sciences, engineering, and humanities, including:
In commemoration of its 80th anniversary, the American Polar Society will join with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to bring together world-class leaders in science and diplomacy to discuss the role of polar oceans in global climate change.
The Forum for Arctic Ocean Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS) is an international effort to focus on enhancing collaboration and coordination among arctic marine and sea ice modelers, theoreticians and observationalists based on a set of activities starting from generating hypotheses, to planning research included both observations and modeling, and to finalizing analyses synthesizing major results from the field studies and coordinated numerical experiments.
Arctic Shipping Forum North America 2015 - essential information for understanding the challenges of shipping operations in the Arctic. The ONLY event in North America dedicated to examining shipping operations in the Arctic.
The Geosciences and Education and Human Resources Directorates are partnering to advance and develop understanding of learning environments that build upon the rich interdisciplinary resources emerging from polar investments.
ADVANCE: Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers
The goals of the ADVANCE program are (1) to develop systemic approaches to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic STEM careers; (2) to develop innovative and sustainable ways to promote gender equity in the STEM academic workforce; and (3) to contribute to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce. ADVANCE also has as its goal to contribute to and inform the general knowledge base on gender equity in the academic STEM disciplines. There are three tracks with distinct purposes.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has just issued a "Notice of Funding Opportunity" (a request for proposals) on behalf of the Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative. This solicitation is for short pre-proposals that can fall into three different categories for our Terrestrial Systems theme. The three categories for proposals are:

NOAA Fisheries announced the availability of up $10 million through 2016 Saltonstall-Kennedy (SK) Grant competition. The goal of the SK program is to fund projects that address the needs of fishing communities, optimize economic benefits by building and maintaining sustainable fisheries, and increase other opportunities to keep working waterfronts viable. The FY16 solicitation seeks applicants that fall into seven priorities. The solicitation will close on November 2, 2015.
