The University of Utah’s Asia Center is hosting an interdisciplinary conference on Siberia, Central Asia, and the Russian Far East and North Pacific, organized around the theme of “Asia in the Russian Imagination.” The conference will be held at the University of Utah’s campus. Over the past three years, the Asia Center’s “Siberian Initiative” has sponsored talks on anthropology, environmental studies, history, film studies, and linguistics, and we are continuing this interdisciplinary approach to Russia in Asia/Asia in Russia at our conference.

Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

The geothermal heat flux to the base of the Antarctic ice sheet is inherently difficult to measure, yet accurate estimates are necessary to better understand cryosphere dynamics. This is crucial to improve models of ice discharge and sea level change, and optimise site selection for ice core paleoclimate studies.

Online or at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, 12:00-1:00pm AKDT, 4:00-5:00pm EDT

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 and the late 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.

Available in-person at: Room 407 in the Akasofu Building on the UAF Campus in Fairbanks.

Organizers invite registration for the International Tundra Experiment's (ITEX) 19th Open Science Meeting. This meeting will convene 25-27 April 2018 in Stirling, Scotland, United Kingdom.

The main scientific themes of the meeting will include:

Cross-track Infrared Sounder/Advanced Technology Microwave Sounder (CrIS/ATMS) soundings processed though the NOAA Unique Combined Atmospheric Processing System (NUCAPS) (i.e. NUCAPS Soundings) are currently available in AWIPS-II as vertical temperature and moisture profiles for forecasters to diagnose unique forecasting challenges. To further realize the potential of NUCAPS Soundings in the operational environment, a team of scientists and forecasters developed the capability to view 2-D gridded plan view and cross section displays of NUCAPS Soundings (i.e. Gridded NUCAPS) in AWIPS-II.

The Nederlands Aardwetenschappelijk Congres (NAC) bring together all fields of research within the Earth Sciences. The NAC conferences aim to provide a true interdisciplinary forum for discussion and for young researchers to present their results in a way that is accessible to a broad audience.

The meeting consists of plenary sessions, with invited presentations by (inter)national speakers, parallel sessions with oral presentations and poster sessions.

Please see the website above for more information.

Where: 
Potomac, Maryland

The Workshop 'Remote Sensing for Studying the Ocean-Atmosphere Interface', co-sponsored by the European Space Agency (ESA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS).

Workshop Objective:

Facilitate the exchange of ideas and information about developments in remote sensing that can provide new information about the ocean-atmosphere interface, and to help forge collaborations between workshop participants and with the wider community.
