The organizers of the 6th European Conference on Permafrost are pleased to welcome you 18-22 June 2023 in Puigcerdà, at the heart of the Eastern Pyrenees for three exciting days of plenary lectures, oral presentations and posters, combined with several local field trips across the eastern Pyrenees (Cerdanya, Núria, Andorra, etc). Two 3-day-long regional field trips across the Pyrenees will be organized before and at the end of the conference.

The Mathematics on Ice Forum meet once a month to discuss mathematical aspects of ice dynamics and bring together the community in an informal online atmosphere.

In each meeting there are two presentations and time for discussions and ice-breaking in small sub-groups. The format is intended to stem from your contributions – give a talk, join the discussions, and invite further participants. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to contribute. The organizers would like to encourage in particular PhD students to present their research.

Are you interested in applying for an NSF grant soon? Or thinking about how to apply for NSF grants n the future? Unsure of what to write or nervous about what to expect? Want to learn more from those who have experience of handling grant applications?

The Earth Science Women's Network is once again hosting a webinar all about Navigating NSF. This event will feature a panel discussion featuring NSF Program Officers and Directors and a talk all about NSF, and to help set you up for application success!

Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere - Methods and Applications from Regional to Global Scale
When: 
Mon, 02/06/2023 to Wed, 02/08/2023
Where: 
Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland

This workshop will focus on the latest developments in remote sensing of land ice and snow. Presentations are encouraged on all fields of research and applications with the focus on snow and ice as proxy for a changing cryosphere, methods for retrieving cryospheric parameters from various types of remote sensing data, theoretical basis of inversion methods and their application, state of the art of retrieval algorithms including deep learning, data assimilation of remote sensing data and in situ observations in process models, and current and planned sensors for snow and ice.

Speaking: Paul A. Bernhardt
When: 
Tue, 02/07/2023
Where: 
University of Alaska Fairbanks and Online: 7:00 pm AKST, 11:00 pm EST

Paul A. Bernhardt will present, “Detecting Space-Debris Bullets.”

NASA tracks over 27,000 pieces of space debris in low Earth orbit, but there are millions more pieces of space junk too small to track and which travel at speeds up to 15,000 miles per hour. An impact of even a tiny piece of orbital debris with a spacecraft, also traveling at the same high speed, could create significant problems.

Speaking: Dr. Charleen Fisher and Kaare Siquak Erickson
When: 
Tue, 02/07/2023
Where: 
Online: 1:00-3:00 pm AKST, 5:00-7:00 pm EST

Join the US Permafrost Association (USPA) to learn more about best practices of working in local northern communities with speakers Dr. Charleen Fisher and Kaare Siquak Erickson. USPA Members and non-members are welcome. The event will be held on Zoom only with a recording archived on the USPA website after the event ends.

When: 
Wed, 02/08/2023
Where: 
British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge, United Kingdom and Online: 1:30-6:00 am AKST, 5:30-10:00 am EST, 10:30 am - 3:00 pm GMT

The annual NERC Arctic Research Station event will be hosted at the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge and online. If you are a current user of the NERC station in Ny-Ålesund, or if you are considering applying to use the station in the future or just interested in finding out more about the Station, then the organizers strongly recommend attending this event, which will aim to inform on the Station, including information on all the science kit that has been recently purchased, along with information on how to apply to access the station and funding opportunities.

When: 
Thu, 02/09/2023 to Fri, 02/10/2023
Where: 
Birmensdorf, Switzerland

At its 26th edition, the Alpine Glaciology Meeting is an annual, community-building gathering addressing researchers that are active in the field of glaciology. While the meeting is held on a 5-year cycle in Switzerland, France, Austria, Italy, and Germany, it welcomes glacier-interested researchers from around the world. Similarly, the contributions presented in form of oral talks or poster presentations are not limited to Alpine glaciology, but encompass other glacierized regions on Earth and other cryospheric disciplines.

Where: 
Online: 9:30 am - 12:30 pm AKST, 1:30-4:30 pm EST

What does maritime deterrence look like in the High North? What is the right balance to deter Russia without escalating? What lessons can be learned and applied from recent Navy and Allied exercises and operations? These questions inform how the US and its Allies characterize, prioritize, and implement naval strategy in the High North, and are of utmost importance during ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
