The in-situ snow broadband albedo is automatically measured in many stations that monitor the surface radiation budget, and is used (a) to test snow albedo parameterizations, (b) to validate remote sensing snow albedo products, (c) as input parameter for snow, hydrological, and atmospheric models, and (d) for climate studies.
Uncertainty in Satellite-Derived Sea Ice Extent Estimates
Online: 10:00 to 11:00 am AKDT, 2:00 to 3:00 pm EDT
The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) announces an open webinar entitled "Uncertainty in Satellite-Derived Sea Ice Extent Estimates."
This webinar is designed for the sea ice research community and others interested in information about the uncertainty in sea ice extent estimates from remotely-sensed data. While this is an open event, attendees should be aware that the discussions will largely be of a technical nature. The speaker will be Walt Meier, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
Organizers announce a call for abstracts and workshops for the Aleutian Life Forum 2016: Building Resilience in the Face of Change. This forum will take place from 16-20 August 2016 in Dutch Harbor, Alaska.
The University of the Arctic Thematic Network on Permafrost and Natural Hazard announce a call for applications for an International Permafrost/Natural Hazard Summer Field School in Yakutia, Russia on 1-20 August 2016. Senior bachelor and graduate students who are interested in obtaining and overall knowledge about permafrost are encouraged to apply.
Organizers announces a call for applications for a field course entitled, "Advanced Climate Dynamics Course on the Role of High Latitudes in Centennial to Millennial Scale Climate Variability."
The goal of the course is to provide students with empirical, proxy, and dynamical training within climate science and an understanding the basic principles and dynamics behind centennial to millennial scale climate variability and their link to past, present and future changes to high latitude climate.
