Science and Policy for a Changing Arctic
When: 
Mon, 05/20/2019
Where: 
National Academy of Sciences - 2101 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

The Study for Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) announces the conference ARCTIC FUTURES 2050: Science for Policy in a Changing Arctic that will take place 4–6 September 2019 in Washington, D.C.

Why:

The rapid changes taking place in the Arctic call for immediate policy responses well informed by science and Indigenous knowledge. Today’s policy decisions concerning the Arctic will have substantial long term and global consequences.

Where: 
Milan, Italy

Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA’s Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world. For decades now Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change.

The United States Arctic's extreme operating environment poses unique challenges to land and coastal-based infrastructure development, with receding sea ice, coastal erosion, and thawing permafrost, among other effects of climate change, complicating efforts. This panel will discuss these challenges and how they affect projections of future maritime traffic, existing development activities, and the emerging vision of the Alaska of tomorrow.

When: 
Wed, 05/15/2019 to Thu, 05/16/2019
Where: 
Woods Hole, Massachusetts

Organizers invite registration for the Synoptic Arctic Survey (SAS) International Planning and Coordination Workshop.

When: 
Tue, 05/14/2019 to Thu, 05/16/2019
Where: 
University of Maine, in Orono, Maine

The workshop goal is to bring together a diverse group of researchers and graduate students that are using or would like to use ice core data available from the Arctic Data Center to produce the future generation of paleoclimate data sets. The goal is to learn about common research workflows that the community is using and to test the applicability of selected Arctic data sets and software tools to build the next generation of digital paleoclimate data products and reconstructions.

Vegetation change has been observed across Arctic and boreal regions. Studies have often documented large-scale greening trends (i.e. increased plant productivity or measured “greenness”) but they have also identified areas of browning (decreased productivity) or shifts between greening and browning over varying spatial extents and time periods. At the same time, there are large portions of these ecosystems that have not exhibited measurable trends in greening or browning.
