The Arctic Data Center provides training in data science and data management. These are critical skills for the stewardship of data, software, and many other research products that are preserved at the Arctic Data Center. A goal of this center is to advance data archiving and promote reproducible science and data reuse.
Enabling US Early Career Researchers to Advance Polar Science using High Performance Computing and Earth System Modeling
Mon, 08/13/2018 to Fri, 08/17/2018
With funding from National Science Foundation’s Office of Polar Programs [NSF OPP], we are organizing a 1-week long CESM Polar Modeling Workshop at the National Center for Atmospheric Research Mesa Laboratory. The workshop will target ~15 early career (graduate student, postdoc, < 7 years since Ph.D.) polar scientists to attend. All workshop activities will focus on the Community Earth System Model and high performance computing supported by the National Science Foundation [NSF] at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center [NWSC].
This conference aims to facilitate scientific exchange between early-career researchers (ECRs) from a broad range of disciplines working with sea-level change. The conference will include two days of oral and poster presentations by ECRs, invited keynote lectures, a one day field excursion to the Rhine delta and Holland coastal plain with conference dinner, and a public ‘Science and Society’ evening session. The conference is open to ECRs who have obtained or expect to obtain their Ph.D. in 2010 or later.
There is a common way of describing the Arctic – the region, its people and resources – in terms of rapid change and constant transformation. Climate change, scramble for the world’s diminishing natural resources and the rather newly emerged concern for local cultures and knowledge, among others, have contributed to the repeated constructions of the Arctic as something that is constantly in flux. Undeniably, the Arctic and its people have witnessed radical changes.
The University of Oulu and the University of Helsinki are excited to invite you to the second UArctic Congress.
The UArctic Congress 2018 will bring together key UArctic meetings and a science conference into one single gathering, including business meetings of the Council of UArctic, Rectors’ Forum, Student Forum, Thematic Networks, and UArctic Institutes Leadership Team.
Following the success of the first three SLaCC meetings, we are pleased to announce that the fourth annual meeting of the Sea Level and Coastal Change (SLaCC) group will take place in Fort William, Scotland, with field excursions to surrounding coastal landscapes. This meeting aims to be bring together scientists from the UK and NW Europe to discuss their work in all aspects of sea level and coastal changes. We welcome cross-disciplinary engagement at the meeting, the content of which will incorporate data production (e.g.

FRISP is a subcommmittee of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Working Group of Glaciology. For several years the work of the FRISP parties was focused on the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf (FRIS). But meanwhile the geographical restriction to FRIS was widened up and other ice shelves have been included into the investigations. FRISP started out as an European forum, but now welcomes any scientist working on ice shelves and related issues.
The University of Exeter will be hosting the IGS British Branch Meeting on the 4th/5th September 2018. Information relating to registration, accomodation and the event programme will be posted at the website above.
