The OGGM workshop is an annual, informal meeting for developers, users, and future users of the Open Global Glacier Model (www.oggm.org). For this third edition, we decided to open the event to the wider community.
This workshop has three main objectives:
1) State of OGGM: the first day will be spent with presentations from the participants about recent developments and results.
This summer school is aimed at postgraduate students and early career scientists who would like to obtain a solid grounding in polar climate system science, with a particular focus on the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice and their interactions. It will consist of a series of lectures by world-leading experts in polar science, who will deal with the maintenance of the polar climates, their role in the global system, links to lower latitudes, modelling, change over recent decades and how the system my change over the next century.

The advent of new, high quality small satellites, and the availability of high-resolution commercial imagery is opening a new era of Arctic science. Every remote corner of the planet now has one foot resolution optical and high quality radar imagery, allowing surface cover and properties relevant to biology, geology, geomorphology, ecology, and cryospheric studies to be seen in ways, rates, and resolutions as never before possible.
The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) Collaborations invites attendance for a webinar titled Science Communication Lightning Talks for Effective Interdisciplinary Arctic Research. This webinar will be held via Zoom Video Conferencing.
The 2nd SCAR Summer School on Polar Geodesy will be held at the Ladoga Base of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), in Ladozhskoe Ozero, about 70 km east of St. Petersburg, Russia. The summer school provides a concise course on geodetic ground‐based and satellite methods focussed on polar applications in combination with lectures on geophysics and glaciology.
Tvärminne Zoological Station, 120km southwest of Helsinki, Finland
This small symposium (40 participants) is intended to provide a unique opportunity to bring together molecular microbial ecologists specialized in different organism groups, share our latest results, and discuss methodological problems as well as the future prospects in the field, including practical international collaboration. The environmental focus will be on sea ice environments, but excellent research in other cryospheric environments is also invited.
30 Years of Footsteps in Antarctica: Looking Back and Looking Forward
Tue, 05/15/2018 to Wed, 05/16/2018
Korea Polar Research Institute, Incheon, Republic of Korea
The King Sejong Station was established and inaugurated on King George Island in February 1988, after the Republic of Korea acceded to the Antarctic Treaty in November 1986. Since then KOPRI has continued to expand its research as well as to strengthen logistic capacities to support world class science, for example a research icebreaker, Araon and the second Antarctic Station, Jang Bogo in Terra Nova Bay as a platform for conducting continental Antarctic research. KOPRI has devoted its passion and commitment to explore the uncharted field of Antarctic research for over three decades.

Following a successful launch, the second new-generation Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite, GOES-S, became GOES-17 and is currently in the test position of 89.5 degrees West longitude. This fall, the satellite will begin drifting to its new position at 137 degrees West longitude, where it will begin imaging as the operational GOES-West satellite this November. GOES-West will dramatically improve weather satellite imaging of Alaska, with four times more detail compared to previous generation geostationary weather satellites, even on the North Slope.
