A training school focused on exploring glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) modelling will be held from 26-30 August 2019 at Lantmäteriet, Gävle, Sweden. The program will include lectures and practical exercises aimed at investigating the interactions between solid Earth deformation, ice mass change, and associated sea-level and geoid variations.

Waterhackweek is a 5-day hackweek to be held at the University of Washington in partnership with the University of Washington eScience Institute. Participants will learn about open source technologies used to analyze water-related datasets. Mornings will consist of interactive lectures, and afternoon sessions will involve facilitated exploration of datasets and hands-on software development. Successful applicants will pay a $100 registration fee and be expected to cover lodging, travel expenses and some meals. Financial support may be available based on need.

How are melting ice sheets causing sea level rise and what can we do about it? The ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, along with glaciers and ice caps around the world, are melting faster than anticipated as a result of climate change caused by greenhouse gases from human activities. This rapid evolution--resulting from complex interactions between the atmosphere, the ocean, and ice--has been captured in great detail by a growing body of observational platforms that include satellites, aircraft, underwater floats, and autonomous gliders.

Lucca (Barga), Italy

Building on the tradition of excellence of the GRC Conference Series, the 2019 GRC on Polar Marine Science "Shedding Light on the Physical, Biogeochemical and Human Dimensions of Connectivity in Changing Polar Seas" will bring together leading investigators to present and discuss cutting edge research on both polar oceans. The unique GRC format, with invited speakers and discussion leaders, provides an avenue for scientists from different fields to brainstorm and create synergy across disciplines. Conference themes are explored in greater detail during the highly dynamic poster sessions.

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 April 2019 and the spring/early summer season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
