This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the Arctic Council, with the United States handing over its two-year, rotating chairmanship to Finland in the spring of 2017. The United States and Finland are working closely to ensure continuity of shared chairmanship priorities and a long-term approach to addressing challenges in the Arctic.
What will this transition mean for Arctic issues in the years ahead, and what priorities will shape the conversation around sustainable development? How can environmental and economic imperatives be balanced over the long-term?
The Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN) and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (Lamont) will host a Workshop on Polar Predictability on 4-6 May 2016 at Columbia University, Palisades, New York. This is the third annual workshop on this topic. The first was held in April 2014 in Boulder, Colorado and the second was in April 2015 in Reading, United Kingdom.
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.
Ice Core Young Scientists (ICYS) is pleased to announce a workshop for Early Career Researchers in ice core science to be held immediately before the upcoming IPICS Open Science Conference, on Sunday 06 March 2016.
