The 13th International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Science (ISAES 2019) will be held at the Songdo Convensia in Incheon, Republic of Korea. The symposium aims to bring together Antarctic earth scientists from different areas in order to gather and highlight their outstanding expertise and ideas.
Our Organizing Committee are delighted to bring INQUA to Dublin and we would like to warmly welcome you to the 20th INQUA Congress.
We all have a deep commitment to the Congress and we all want our delegates to thoroughly enjoy the stimulation of multiple scientific sessions in the purpose built Convention centre. In addition we hope you are all looking forward to the warm welcome from Dublin and the Irish people and that you enjoy the magnificent Irish scenery on the various field trips we have organised.
Applications are now open for the 7th Annual Summer School on Sustainable Climate Risk Management.
The Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management's (SCRiM) annual summer school is designed to foster opportunities for collaboration between scholars and practitioners while providing a solid foundation in the broad, multidisciplinary knowledge, tools, and methods of the diverse fields participating in the network.
UiT The Arctic University of Norway, Academia Borealis - The Academy of Sciences and Letters of Northern Norway, and Tromsø Research Foundation welcome nominations for The International Mohn Prize for Outstanding Research Related to the Arctic (The Mohn Prize).
The Mohn Prize was established by the board of UiT The Arctic University of Norway in 2017. The prize, which carries a cash award of 2 million NOK (approximately 210 000 €), is awarded biennially.
This year's WAIS workshop will be held in Southern California at the newly remodeled Camp Cedar Glen from October 16-18, 2019. Sponsored by NSF and NASA, the workshop will focus on marine ice-sheet and adjacent earth systems, with particular emphasis on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The workshop will follow the Antarctic Earth Sciences meeting also held at Camp Julian, October 13-15.
Organizers invite applications for a Community Earth System Model (CESM) Polar Modeling Workshop for early career scientists.
The workshop is supported by the National Science Foundation and will include around 20 early career polar scientists. Early career scientists include graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and those within seven years of receiving a PhD.
The North Pacific Arctic Conference (NPAC), co-organized by the East-West Center and the Korea Maritime Institute, is now in its 9th year. This innovative conference provides a venue for off-the-record engagement among policymakers/practitioners and scientists/analysts regarding Arctic issues of mutual interest to leading North Pacific Arctic states (Canada, Russia, and the United States) and non-Arctic states (China, Japan, and South Korea).
Speaking: Rick Thoman, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy (ACCAP)
University of Alaska Fairbanks, or online: 12:00pm AKDT, 4:00pm EDT
The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for September 2019 and the late fall/early winter season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
Sea ice plays a critically important yet highly dynamic role in global climate, polar marine ecosystems, globalization and indigenous cultures. Ongoing dramatic changes to the sea-icescape and freshwater–marine coupling, particularly involving ice sheets, glaciers, ice shelves, sea-ice loss and continental runoff, have major implications for climate within and beyond the polar regions, environmental and ecological integrity, and regional and global socioeconomic development.
