Organizers of the 3rd Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) International Online Conference 2017 announce a call for
abstract submissions. This year's theme is entitled, "Outside the Box: Encouraging alternative solutions for undertaking and communicating polar research."
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).
Organizers announce a call for abstracts for the Arctic Frontiers Science Conference entitled "White Space - Blue Frontiers".
Arctic Frontiers is an international arena on sustainable development in the Arctic. The conference addresses the management of opportunities and
challenges to achieve viable economic growth with societal and environmental sustainability. Arctic Frontiers 2017 will discuss the gaps in our knowledge about the Arctic oceans and the role these will play in the future.
The science section will address four main themes:
The 2017 Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS), Alaska’s premier marine research conference, will take place on January 23-27, 2017. AMSS brings together scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and interested public to discuss the latest and greatest marine research being conducted in Alaskan waters. Research will be presented by geographic theme, including the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea & Aleutian Islands, and the Arctic. Topic areas will include ocean physics, fishes and invertebrates, seabirds, marine mammals, local traditional knowledge and more.
We will convene a 1 1/2 day workshop at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in January 2017 (directly following PARCA 2017), with the purpose of defining a path forward for a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) observation network in Greenland. There are many means for determining Greenland ice mass loss, but almost all rely on some form of satellite positioning, generally using GNSS or its subset Global Positioning System (GPS). Thus a network of geodetic-quality GNSS receivers is desirable.
