Greenland's environment is rapidly changing as sea ice melts and glaciers crumble, and the effects of climate change are plain to see. While this has attracted scientists from around the globe for decades, Greenlandic society has seen few direct benefits of this increasing focus. Greenlandic and American research institutions now seek stronger bilateral relations that leverage the resources and expertise of researchers, and capacity building and better inclusion of stakeholders and community members. Collaboration between Greenland and the U.S.

Science and Policy for a Changing Arctic
When: 
Wed, 09/04/2019 to Fri, 09/06/2019
Where: 
National Academy of Sciences - 2101 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

The Study for Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) announces the conference ARCTIC FUTURES 2050: Science for Policy in a Changing Arctic.

Why:

The rapid changes taking place in the Arctic call for immediate policy responses well informed by science and Indigenous knowledge. Today’s policy decisions concerning the Arctic will have substantial long term and global consequences.

This autumn, SIOS (Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System) will offer a training course on how to effectively use satellite data, tools and software in the context of marine research in Svalbard. The course is intended for researchers, PhD students and technicians with no or little experience with satellite remote sensing techniques. The training will be delivered by marine remote sensing experts from SIOS member institutions.

Where: 
Burlington House, London, United Kingdom

Changes to the state of debris-covered glaciers pose a hazard to nearby communities, with rapidly-growing, moraine-dammed lakes a particular threat. This workshopwill allow scientists and practitioners to explore the current state of the science on debris-covered glaciers in high mountain environments such as high Asia and the Andes. Through a series of talks and working groups, the workshop will facilitate the standardization of methodology and develop recommendations for future work that can be transferred to local institutions.

When: 
Sun, 09/01/2019 to Wed, 09/04/2019
Where: 
Devon and Cornwall, United Kingdom

The Sea Level and Coastal Change (SLaCC) meeting series comes to the South West in 2019 to bring together scientists working in sea level and coastal research.

Attendance is open across all career stages and to all SLaCC related disciplines (including: palaeo studies, archaeology, modern processes and geomorphology, past and future sea-level change, coastal communities, adaptation and resilience).

Abstract:

The Nation's authoritative assessment of climate impacts, the Fourth National Climate Assessment Vol. II: Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States (NCA4 Vol. II) was released in November 2018. This presentation will address the potential for reduction or avoidance of future risk through adaptation efforts and emissions mitigation.
