Online: 10:00 am AKDT, 2:00 pm EDT
With speakers Crane Johnson and Rick Thoman of the National Weather Service.
Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will present a brief overview of current conditions and provide our spring statewide flooding potential outlook for the 2017 spring break-up season. This will be followed by a comparison of historic breakup years and a spring/summer climate outlook.
Education Meets Science: Bringing Polar Research into Classrooms
Tue, 04/11/2017 to Fri, 04/14/2017
This is the third PEI (Polar Educators International) Workshop gathering teachers, educators and scientists working on polar subjects. The aim is to bring world class researchers together with educators interested in polar science and to present current research and share innovative lessons to transfer the scientific information to classrooms and other audiences. A broad goal is to give educators and researchers the tools to raise public awareness on the importance of the polar regions.
The Arctic Encounter Symposium (AES) is the largest annual Arctic policy event in the United States. Founded in 2013, the AES aims to confront the shared interests and concerns of the United States and the global community as we look north to the last emerging frontier - the Arctic. Policymakers, industry leaders, regional stakeholders, and leading experts from the science, technology, maritime, and energy sectors, come together at the AES to challenge the status quo dialogue, critically address challenges to realizing the Arctic's full potential and collaborate on solutions.
Life at the Extremes: Resilience, Adaptation and Application Potential
The International Symposium on Polar Sciences has been held annually ever since the conception of Korea’s Antarctic research schemes. This Symposium not only serves as an international forum bringing polar scientists together to exchange views and ideas, but also provides an opportunity to discuss collaborative research with peers and colleagues. Marking the 23rd series of this symposium, this year’s theme is “Life at the Extremes: Resilience, Adaptation and Application Potential”.
We are pleased to invite representatives of academia, business and government with professional interests to participate in the Conference in order to discuss future development in the High North as well as create a firmer foundation for decision-making and sustainable economic development in the Arctic.
In succession to previous workshops held 2009 in Dresden (“Aerogravimetry: Technology and Application”) and 2012 in Potsdam (“Geodesy and Geophysics on Airborne Platforms, in particular HALO”) we would like to invite you to the International Workshop “Airborne Geodesy and Geophysics with Focus on Polar Applications”.
