A two day workshop will be held 12-13 December 2015 in advance of the AGU 2015 Fall Meeting in San Francisco to discuss the design and implementation of a Greenland Ice Sheet Ocean Observing System (GrIOOS). The aim of GrIOOS is to provide long-term time series of critical in situ glaciological, oceanographic and atmospheric parameters at several key locations around Greenland.
The 5th annual meeting of the Permafrost Carbon Network will take place on Sunday, 13 December 2015 in San Francisco. We are working on our agenda and will post more details once the meeting comes closer, but we already hope to see many of our members join us.
This annual meeting is open to all interested members of the Permafrost Carbon Network. Please send a email to Christina Schädel at Christina.Schaedel [at] nau.edu for more details.
