The International Glaciological Society will hold a second International Symposium on ‘Interactions of Ice Sheets and Glaciers with the Ocean’ in 2016. The symposium is a follow-on to the successful 2011 IGS symposium on the same theme, which brought together 194 delegates from nearly 20 countries and resulted in the publication of 36 peer-reviewed research articles cited over 650 times since 2012. The Symposium will also serve as the first of two annual Forum for Research into Ice Shelf Processes (FRISP) meetings to be held in 2016.
The international Polar Libraries Colloquy meets every four years to conference and present papers and posters relating to library and museum collections of with special collections in this field will attend. The colloquy is open to all and will include paper and poster sessions, keynoter Fran Ulmer (invited) and field trips in the area.
The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) invites members of the Arctic Community to participate in a survey to examine Arctic-Research information needs and how ARCUS can better meet these needs.The information from the survey will be used internally by ARCUS to make improvements to current communication channels. ARCUS asks that you complete the survey no later than Friday, 15 July 2015.

The Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) announces ARCTIC ALERTS 2016, a media roundtable in which Arctic researchers will outline the unprecedented changes taking place in the Arctic environment and the local and global consequences. This year continues the recent trend of remarkable anomalies in the Arctic, and the presentations and discussion will focus on their connections to global changes.
Recent extreme cold weather outbreaks across the mid-latitudes have been the subject of great interest to the public and debate among the scientific community, with some researchers proposing a link to the warming Artic. To learn about the latest observational and modeling studies that examine these linkages, join Judah Cohen (AER Inc./MIT) and Lantao Sun (U. Colorado, Boulder/NOAA ESRL) for this webinar.
