Following on from the "15 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2006, and the "20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2012, both deemed a very successful landmark by the participants and the readership of the Proceedings, we have now reached the 25-year anniversary of the first supply of ERS-1 and TOPEX/Poseidon data products to the Altimetric Community.

The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) is pleased to announce the next Arctic Research Seminar Series event featuring Marlene Laruelle (George Washington University). The event will be held in the ARCUS D.C. office at 1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C. on Tuesday, 6 March 2018 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. ET. This seminar will also be available as a webinar live-stream for those unable to attend in person. Instructions for accessing the event online will be sent to webinar registrants prior to the event.
The international conference within the project ‘Development of the UK- Russia Arctic Research and collaboration Network”, is funded by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the UK Embassy in Russia. The project is thematically focused on changing Arctic from the perspective of the Russia`s State Program on the Arctic Zone Development and the Adapting to Change UK policy towards the Arctic.
The final project event will include panel discussion on multidisciplinary research and education in the North and five sessions on following topics:
The 22nd Alpine Glaciology/Glaciologist Meeting (AGM) will be held in Chamonix, France.
This meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers or permafrost: glaciers mass balance, ice-flow observations and modelling, ice geophysics, instrumentations, etc.
There is no registration fee for participation at this workshop. However, a registration is required because we need to know the exact
number of people attending at the meeting.
We are pleased to announce the second field school as a part of the International Partnerships for Excellence in Education and Research (INTPART) project “Arctic Field Summer Schools: Norway-Canada-USA collaboration”. The second field school is organized by the University of Alaska Fairbanks and is tentatively planned for May 29 to June 9, 2018.

A number of research groups are currently examining processes related to coupling between surface meltwater production and future Antarctic ice loss. Recent studies have suggested that surface hydrological systems in Antarctica may expand and proliferate this century. Meanwhile, numerical models of the Antarctic Ice Sheet that incorporate meltwater's impact on ice shelves, predict Antarctic contributions of up to a meter of global sea-level rise this century in response to atmospheric warming.
This solicitation focuses upon the integration of the data and software elements of advanced cyberinfrastructure. By integrating two major and long-running NSF program solicitations, Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) and Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2), under a single umbrella called Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI), NSF seeks to enable funding opportunities that are flexible and responsive to the evolving and emerging needs in integrated data and software cyberinfrastructure.
The cryosphere forms an integral part of the climate system of the Earth. Measuring the properties of the seasonal and perennial snow cover properties is therefore essential in understanding interactions and feedback mechanisms related to the cryosphere.

Arctic research is too often siloed along disciplinary lines, reflecting traditional science education and research practice. Co-production of knowledge is increasingly being recognized by the scientific community at-large. However, in many instances the concept is being incorrectly applied. This webinar will highlight several successful examples of projects that bring Indigenous Knowledge holders and scientists together through a co-production of knowledge framework to create a holistic image of Arctic environmental changes.
The 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM), co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS), will be held in Portland, Oregon. The OSM is an important venue for scientific exchange across broad marine science disciplines. Sessions will include all aspects of oceanography, especially multidisciplinary topics, as well as presentations that reflect new and emerging research on the global ocean and society, including science education, outreach and public policy.
