Conversations from the North: Scholars of many disciplines and inhabitants of many places in dialogue with one another, with animals and plants, and with the land
When: 
Tue, 02/14/2017
Where: 
Online

The conference is being held in association with the 11th Rectors’ Forum of the University of the Arctic, and will take place in Aberdeen, United Kingdom from August 27th to 29th 2017.

The goal of the conference is to celebrate the University’s emergence as a world-leading centre for interdisciplinary research on the circumpolar North.

The conference will be fully interdisciplinary, with themes including:

When: 
Tue, 02/14/2017
Where: 
Seattle, Washington and online: 9:00-10:00 am AKST, 10:00-11:00 am PST, 1:00-2:00 pm EST

Presenters:
James Overland, Oceanographer, NOAA Research Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and Muyin Wang, Meteorologist, University of Washington Joint Institute for the Study of Atmosphere and Oceans.

When: 
Mon, 02/06/2017 to Thu, 02/09/2017
Where: 
Hyytaila, Finland

The workshop is open to all scientists interested in detailed observations of energetic, hydrological and chemical fluxes at the surface-atmosphere interface and how these may be used to understand and model the Arctic climate system. The Workshop is bringing professional and scientific experts together under research themes related to biogeochemistry, surface energy balance, atmospheric sciences, permafrost, hydrology, modeling, and remote sensing to help coordinate and synthesize polar flux data and models as an integrated systems of energy, moisture and chemical exchange.

Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow
When: 
Tue, 02/07/2017 to Thu, 02/09/2017
Where: 
Bern, Switzerland

You are cordially invited to attend the 8th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL), which is to be held at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland.

When: 
Wed, 02/01/2017 to Fri, 02/03/2017
Where: 
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.

Join us in this workshop to explore the possible links between Arctic change and mid-latitude weather and climate​ that has spurred a rush of new observational and modeling studies.

When: 
Thu, 02/02/2017 to Fri, 02/03/2017
Where: 
Zurich, Switzerland

For the seventh time the Alpine Glaciology/Glaciologist Meeting (AGM) will be hosted in Zürich, Switzerland. The meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers and permafrost. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young researchers are especially encouraged to present their work in progress.

When: 
Thu, 02/02/2017
Where: 
Naval Heritage Center in Washington, D.C.

Organizers announce a call for registration to an evening lecture entitled "Changing Arctic: How It's Affecting Our Weather." This lecture
will convene 6:00-8:00 p.m. EST.

Profound changes in the Arctic have coincided with more frequent extreme weather events across the mid-latitudes, such as Washington, D.C. These events include intense heat and rainfall, and severe winter cold spells and snow storms. Scientists are actively addressing if and how Arctic change is connected to these events, which affect economies, geopolitics, security, and society at large.

When: 
Wed, 02/01/2017
Where: 
Online

Research Topics:
Terrestrial Ecology, Fjord Ecology, Glaciology, Hydrology, Limnology, Geomorphology, Biogeochemistry, Permafrost, and Quaternary Geology.

When: 
Tue, 01/31/2017
Where: 
Online, deadline at 9:00 am AKST

Each year we select expedition teams of 8-9 teenage girls and 3 instructors to spend 12 days exploring and learning about glaciers and the alpine or marine environment. Through scientific field studies with professional glaciologists, ecologists, artists, and mountaineers, you will build critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, and make lasting friendships. One team explores Mount Baker, an ice-covered volcano in the North Cascades of Washington State. Another team sleeps under the midnight sun while exploring an Alaskan glacier.

Understanding Extreme Events and Decision-Maker Needs in the Context of Climate Variability and Change
When: 
Tue, 01/31/2017
Where: 
Online

Organizers of the 15th Annual Climate Prediction Application Science Workshop (CPASW) announce a call for abstracts. The theme of this workshop is "Understanding Extreme Events and Decision-Maker Needs in the Context of Climate Variability and Change" and will convene 2-4 May 2017 in Anchorage, Alaska.
