Climate Change Impacts on Surface Water and Groundwater Hydrology in Cold Regions
Sun, 05/28/2017 to Thu, 06/01/2017
Yakutsk (Siberia), Russian Federation
Changing climate conditions are driving the recent intensification of the high–latitude water cycle. Permafrost degradation leads to a transformation of landscape structure causing thermokarst development, enhancing the connectivity between surface and ground water, changing the regime of wetlands, lakes and aquifers, shifting streamflow seasonality and amplitude. New understanding of those processes is required for timely development of adaptation strategies and preventing threats to cold regions worldwide, including economically critical infrastructure.
The 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) and the Canadian Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (CSAFM) will be held at the beautiful University of British Columbia (UBC) campus in Vancouver from Sunday May 28 to Wednesday May 31, 2017.
At this time, we invite you to propose scientific sessions for the meeting:
Applications are now open for the 5th Annual Summer School on Sustainable Climate Risk Management will take place 30 July - 4 August 2017 at Pennsylvania State University, in State College, Pennsylvania.
The #GreatAntarcticClimateHack will be held October 9-12 2017, at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography Forum, La Jolla, California. Our first-ever Climate Hack will focus on bringing Antarctic and Southern Ocean observations to bear on evaluating the latest generation of climate and earth system models (with an emphasis on CMIP), producing new climate model metrics for the 21st century.
Organizers announce the 3rd Blue Planet Symposium. This symposium will convene at the conference center of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'s Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland.
The Arctic-FROST research coordination network is pleased to announce the availability of travel awards for Early Career Researchers to attend The Third Arctic-FROST network meeting and Early Career Scholars Workshop on Community Sustainability in the Arctic in Narsaq, Greenland (September 13-17, 2017).
We are pleased to announce and invite to the International Conference ‘Interdisciplinary Polar Studies in Poland’ to Honor 60th Anniversary of the Polish Polar Station in Hornsund, Svalbard, Arctic and 40th Anniversary of the Arctowski Polish Antarctic Station, South Shetland Islands.
The Conference co-organized by the Centre for Polar Studies will take place in Warsaw (Poland) on 17 – 19 November 2017.
Oceans across boundaries: Learning from each other
Starting off as a national students' event, Youmares has expanded over the years to a bottom-up worldwide network and international meeting of young ocean researchers and experts.
We are very happy that we can meet at Kiel University in Kiel, Germany, place of the Cluster of Excellence 'The Future Ocean' with organisational support of the 'Integrated School of Ocean Sciences' (ISOS). It will take place September 13 - 15, 2017.
This summer school will take place at the TU Delft campus, Delft, Netherlands. It will provide Ph.D. students and junior scientists specializing in sea level research with a basic introduction to the dynamics of current and future sea level change and to state-of-the-art tools to measure and project it. The different contributors to global and regional sea level change will be presented by world-leading experts. The School has a strong component on “hands-on” learning, with practical exercises on the observation and modelling of sea level change, its contributors, and forcing mechanisms.
The Climate Change Education Partnership Alliance (CCEP) invites you to participate in its 2017 webinar series. This series will compliment the newly released Climate Change Education: Effective Practices for Working with Educators, Scientists, Decision Makers, and the Public guide.
