Arctic-COLORS is a Field Campaign Scoping Study supported by NASA's Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry (OBB) Program that aims to quantify present and future impacts of changing land and ice on marine net ecosystem productivity in the fastest warming environment on the planet: the Arctic.
To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science, and use it to inform policy and management, and ultimately to catalyze change. The Society for Conservation Biology's International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.
IMCCs are organized by the Marine Section of the Society for Conservation Biology.
The linkages between the Arctic climate change and mid-latitude climate and weather
Sun, 07/31/2016 to Fri, 08/05/2016
Organizers of Asia Oceania Geosciences Society session AS41, entitled "The linkages between the Arctic climate change and mid-latitude climate and weather,'" announce a call for abstracts. This session will be convened at the 2016 Annual Asia Oceania Geosciences Society Meeting, scheduled for 31 July thru 5 August 2016 in Beijing, China.
The University of the Arctic Thematic Network on Permafrost and Natural Hazard announce a call for applications for an International Permafrost/Natural Hazard Summer Field School in Yakutia, Russia on 1-20 August 2016. Senior bachelor and graduate students who are interested in obtaining and overall knowledge about permafrost are encouraged to apply.
I am writing to let you know that the 2017-2018 Core Fulbright U.S.Scholar Program competition is now open and accepting applications for awards in arctic affairs! Opportunities are available for teaching and/or research in nearly every discipline, from engineering to political science, anthropology, communications and more! I encourage you to share this announcement with your colleagues and network.
Abstract submission for the 14th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography, held as part of the 97th Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) is now open. Submissions on all aspects of polar weather, climate, and oceanography are being solicited. The conference will include invited and contributed oral and poster presentations, joint sessions between other relevant AMS conferences, and activities for early career polar scientists on behalf of the Association for Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS).
All abstract submissions for American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting must be received by 3 August 2016 at 23:59ET/3:59+1 GMT (11:59 P.M. EST). Abstracts will not be accepted for review after this date.
Organizers announces a call for applications for a field course entitled, "Advanced Climate Dynamics Course on the Role of High Latitudes in Centennial to Millennial Scale Climate Variability."
The goal of the course is to provide students with empirical, proxy, and dynamical training within climate science and an understanding the basic principles and dynamics behind centennial to millennial scale climate variability and their link to past, present and future changes to high latitude climate.
The conference will address the "dynamic Arctic," including identifying emerging issues influencing Arctic policy discourse and framing them for consideration by policymakers. A common thread running through previous conferences has been the importance of sustaining the Arctic as a zone of peace and prosperity in a rapidly changing and often turbulent and unpredictable world.
Open to invited participants only.
The conference is co-sponsored by the East-West Center and the Korea Maritime Institute.
