1. To review the main requirements from geo-information in the Atlantic Region from science to information services
2. To review the main activities, projects and initiatives taking place in the region where Earth Observation may contribute
3. To assess the potential of the increasing observation capacity offered by satellites to address the needs for science, applications and future information services
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded a project to conceptualize a national Geospatial Software Institute (GSI) as a long-term hub of excellence in software infrastructure for serving diverse research and education communities. To forward the strong momentum gained from two successful workshops, the third workshop will take place in the Washington DC area.
The Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS), Alaska’s premier marine research conference, has been bringing together scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and interested public for over twenty years to discuss the latest marine research being conducted in Alaskan waters. Over 700 people attend this 4-day long conference held annually during the month of January.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Five Decades of Radioglaciology’. The symposium will be held at Stanford University in Stanford, California, USA on 16–21 June 2019.
Confirmed Key note speaker: professor Joanna Bullard, UK, the first-author of "High‐latitude dust in the Earth system".
High latitude dust (HLD), originating from cold high latitudes (≥ 50 °N and ≥ 40 °S) affects the cryosphere, oceans, air quality and safety, and in Europe both the High Arctic and the European mainland. Extreme HLD events include events with exceptional magnitude, duration, severity, or extent, such as most severe wind erosion events, storms, dust storms, snow-dust storms, heat waves, cold weather, and extreme snowfalls.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has issued a new solicitation for research proposals under the rubric of Navigating the New Arctic, one of the agency’s 10 Big Ideas. The solicitation estimates that – pending the availability of the anticipated funding amount of $30 million – 25 awards will be made.
The cryosphere forms an integral part of the climate system of the Earth. Measuring the properties of the seasonal and perennial snow cover properties is therefore essential in understanding interactions and feedback mechanisms related to the cryosphere.
Beyond 100: The Next Century in Earth and Space Science
The 27th IUGG General Assembly will be held at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada. This is a special opportunity for participants from Canada and from around the world to come together and share their science and culture. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of IUGG; we will look back on the accomplishments of the previous century of Earth and space science research, and forward to the next century of scientific advancement. Join us for a host of scientific activities, including special public lectures, keynote Union lectures and a wide variety of themed sessions.
Organizers invite session abstracts for the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) 2019 Aquatic Sciences Meeting.
ASLO is offering two sessions that will highlight Arctic research. These sessions include SS16: Changing Biogeochemistry and Ecology across Arctic Aquatic Systems in the 21st Century and CS36: Arctic Ecosystems.
The 49th Arctic Workshop will be held on April 4-5, 2019 in Stockholm, Sweden.
The Arctic Workshop is an annual meeting dedicated to all aspects of high-latitude Earth science and environmental research. Running since 1970, the workshop is an informal meeting space for scientists at all career stages working in fields encompassing high- latitude climate, hydrology, glaciology, oceanography, ecology, archaeology, solid Earth processes and hazards in past, present and future environments.
