The 2nd World Seabird Conference (2ndWSC) will build on the progress and success of the 1 st World Seabird Conference and will once again place seabirds on the global stage. Our goal is to provide a venue for seabird scientists from across the globe to gather with their colleagues and discuss research, conservation, and innovative technology as they relate to the study of seabirds and their marine environment.
The U.S. Permafrost Association will be awarding up to eight travel grants between $500-$1000 for U.S. based students and post-graduate researchers (within six years of their terminal degree) to attend the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting 2015. The applicant must be first author on a permafrost-related research presentation at AGU. Preference will be given to an applicant who possesses both USPA and PYRN memberships. Two of the grants are reserved for engineering disciplines. Undergraduate students are encouraged to apply.
On behalf of the International Advisory Committee and the Local Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce the Second Polar Data Forum (PDF II) which will be held 27-29 October 2015, at the University of Waterloo, Canada.
Join the Koshland Science Museum for a world climate change negotiation simulation. Created by Climate Interactive, World Climate enables participants to experience the dynamics that emerge as nations negotiate a global agreement on climate change and to develop a deeper understanding of how to address climate change. The experience combines current climate change science with computer simulation, so participants can see how their decisions impact the global climate system in real-time. Admission is $10 ($7 for students) and includes complimentary refreshments.
National Science Foundation Environmental Engineering Program
The Environmental Engineering program seeks to encourage research applying scientific and engineering principles to avoid or minimize the impacts of solid, liquid, and gaseous discharges on land, inland and coastal waters, and air.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.
The Arctic Circle is the largest global gathering on the Arctic. It is attended by heads of state and governments, ministers, members of parliament, officials, experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, indigenous representatives, environmentalists, students, activists, and others from the growing international community of partners and participants interested in the future of the Arctic. The Arctic Circle highlights issues and concerns, programs, policies and projects; it provides platforms for dynamic dialogue and constructive cooperation.
