Scripps Institution of Oceanography (UC San Diego), in La Jolla, California
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of California at Irvine will host the 2016 Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM) Workshop. It will be sponsored by Pr Helen Fricker who graciously offered to host the workshop.
The meeting will be from April 4-7, 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Sessions should address one of the three sub-themes: Changes in the Arctic, Global Implications of Arctic Changes, and Impacts of Global Change on the Arctic. Session proposal deadline is June 30, 2016. To submit a session proposal, go to:
Organizers announce that the Girls on Ice 2016 Expeditions are now accepting applications. The 2016 program includes two expeditions. The original North Cascades expedition in Washington State will be held 10-21 July 2016, and an Alaska-based expedition will take place 17-28 June 2016.

The International Glaciological Society will hold a second International Symposium on ‘Interactions of Ice Sheets and Glaciers with the Ocean’ in 2016. The symposium is a follow-on to the successful 2011 IGS symposium on the same theme, which brought together 194 delegates from nearly 20 countries and resulted in the publication of 36 peer-reviewed research articles cited over 650 times since 2012. The Symposium will also serve as the first of two annual Forum for Research into Ice Shelf Processes (FRISP) meetings to be held in 2016.
The international Polar Libraries Colloquy meets every four years to conference and present papers and posters relating to library and museum collections of with special collections in this field will attend. The colloquy is open to all and will include paper and poster sessions, keynoter Fran Ulmer (invited) and field trips in the area.
University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) seeks applicants for an Undergraduate Summer Field Course in High Arctic Environmental Change. The course will take place from 11 July to 6 August 2016 in Svalbard, Norway.
The International Arctic Research Center (IARC) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks announces that the 2016 IARC Summer School will be held 11-23 July.
Arctic climate is the result of a complex interplay between the atmosphere, the ocean, sea ice and a terrestrial component in which freezing and thawing are critical to variations over a range of timescales. Since changes in the Arctic may well have global implications, it is essential that Arctic climate simulations be enhanced in order to reduce the uncertainties in projections of climate change.
