In June 2021, the National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored the Crevasse Risk Management and Safety Workshop. In continuing the conversations of this workshop, the NSF Office of Polar Programs is hosting a four-part webinar series on using technology to increase the ability to detect crevasses, an essential need while doing fieldwork in rapidly changing, ice-laden landscapes.
The second annual reincarnation of the Northeast Glaciology meeting (IGS Northeastern North America Branch) will take place at the University of Maine. For this year's meeting, in addition to presentations, the organizers envision selecting a few big ideas or topics as a group to focus discussions around. The organizers hope this format leads towards more collaboration and opportunities for our attendees after the meeting.
The 10th EuroGOOS International Conference will take place 3-5 October 2023 in Galway, Ireland.
Every three years the European Global Ocean Observing System (EuroGOOS) conference provides a forum for marine scientists and technologists developing operational oceanography products, and the users of these services including decision and policy-makers as well as the private sector.
This training workshop is designed to connect researchers at all career stages who are interested in the intersection of glaciology and machine learning. This workshop is targeted towards researchers/students who already have basic to medium programming and machine learning skills and want to increase their skills in machine learning related to glaciology. The number of participants is limited to approximately 25 due to the housing limitations at the Finse Research Center.
The 6th Nordic Conference on Climate Change Adaptation, NOCCA23’ will be held in Iceland, Reykjavík Grand Hotel from 17-19 April 2023, the same year that Iceland will hold the Precedency at the Nordic Council of Ministers.
The focus of NOCCA 2023 is on adaptation in cities and municipalities in the Nordic countries. What actions have been implemented and how, what has worked and what are the key learnings in the adaptation process. The event is a valuable venue for Nordic countries to exchange key learnings and to open the dialog on adaptation.
The Migration in Harmony research coordination network (MiH-RCN) is pleased to invite those in the Washington DC area to join their meeting at Georgetown University.
The goal of this meeting is to bring 25-30 Arctic academics, practitioners, and storytellers to share their current work, identify challenges to and opportunities for cross-border and cross-disciplinary collaborations, and consider future opportunities to create new projects, present at Arctic conferences, and create media with other meeting attendees.
The annual High North Dialogue conference brings together major stakeholders concerned with Arctic development. The organizers encourage and facilitate dialogue to promote sustainable development in the Arctic, as well as the sharing of information and the discussion of best practices.
This year’s topic is “Business in the Arctic – Spaces of Opportunities”. The thematic panels will have dialogues about the Opportunities in the High North within Politics, Business, Outer Space and Ocean Space.
Speakers: Celine van Breukelen (Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center) and Rick Thoman (Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy)
Online: 10:00-11:00 am AKDT, 2:00-3:00 pm EDT
There’s a deep snowpack across Alaska as spring melt approaches. Celine van Breukelen with the NWS Alaska-Pacific River Forecast Center (APRFC) will review break-up basics and provide an overview of current conditions. ACCAP Alaska Climate Specialist Rick Thoman will discuss the latest subseasonal outlooks that help inform the APRFC’s official break-up outlook.
How the Greenland Ice Sheet responds to climate change is important for society for a number of reasons, least of which is sea level rise. Understanding ice sheet stability is central to this effort. In this regard, lessons from the past afford a view into ice sheet processes and history on timescales longer than what is available in the historical record and which are crucial for future predictions.
The Greenland Ice Sheet Workshop will be a three-day workshop focused on Greenland Ice Sheet stability, with an emphasis on lessons from the past.
The International Arctic Workshop is a friendly, informal, and relaxed conference open to all students and professionals interested in the Arctic. Originally starting at INSTAAR at the University of Colorado Boulder, the Arctic Workshop alternates between INSTAAR and an international host. This year, University of Massachusetts with the department of Earth, Geographic, and Climate Sciences & Climate System Research center will be hosting.
Abstracts are being accepted for poster presentations and talks. Abstracts can be uploaded during the registration process.
