The conference will bring together around 200 Arctic stakeholders including representatives from local, regional and national authorities from the European Arctic and beyond, Arctic indigenous peoples and the EU institutions. Discussions will be organised around the following themes: Arctic connectivity, leveraging investment in the Arctic, financial support for Arctic regional cooperation and science.
Polar Regions in Transformation - Climatic Change and Anthropogenic Pressures
Mon, 09/10/2018 to Fri, 09/14/2018
Earth's Polar Regions feature cold-climate environments characterized by unique landscapes, biota, and processes. Many of these features and dynamics are Cryosphere-driven and either are already subject to or have the potential for fundamental and rapid changes in a warming world. Earth observation technologies provide crucial tools to understand and quantify these changes.
This symposium deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic.
Developing Process-based Projections of the Ice Sheets’ Contribution to Future Sea Level
Tue, 09/11/2018 to Thu, 09/13/2018
Van der Valk Hotel Sassenheim-Leiden, Netherlands
We would like to invite you to the ISMIP6 workshop "Developing process-based projections of the ice sheets’ contribution to future sea level" to evaluate the output of the CMIP6 climate models and obtain forcing for standalone ice sheet model experiments. This workshop will be key for establishing the experimental protocols for the ice sheet model simulations that target the IPCC AR6 report.
WTC Anchorage launched the Arctic Ambitions Conference in 2011 in response to growing interest by Alaskan companies, and companies from around the world, in opportunities now, and in the future, for commercial development in the Arctic. At Arctic Ambitions VII, WTC Anchorage will outline its concept for positioning Alaska as an Arctic center for international business. This year's event will feature two special panels: Asia in the Arctic and Alaskan Native Corporations in the Arctic.
We are pleased to announce that Durham University will be hosting this year's UK Antarctic Science Conference on 10th-12th September 2018 (the conference will run from Monday lunchtime to Wednesday lunchtime). The conference will include oral and poster presentations, and abstracts are invited on any aspect of Antarctic Research.
Speaker: Don Perovich, Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth College
Online: 9:00-10:00 am AKDT, 10:00-11:00 am PDT, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm MDT, 12:00-1:00 pm CDT, 1:00-2:00 pm EDT
The Sea Ice Prediction Network–Phase 2 (SIPN2) will convene an open webinar titled An Overview of MOSAiC: The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate. This webinar will provide an overview of the interdisciplinary international MOSAiC program and ongoing work on the causes and consequences of an evolving and diminished Arctic sea ice cover.
The aim of the first Arctic Resilience Forum is to form a better understanding of the opportunities for cooperation connected to the resilience of the Artic and to showcase and learn from concrete best practices in the region.
