with focus on ice mass loss at fronts of tidewater glaciers in Pan-Arctic scale
The seminar will be hosted and financially supported by the Centre for Polar Studies - University of Silesia and Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland under the umbrella and with support of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), through its Network on Arctic Glaciology, and the Committee of Polar Research Polish Academy of Sciences.
It will take place in the seaside resort Sopot, Poland, 15 - 17 October 2016.
The University of Washington's eScience Institute is hosting a GeoHack week, November 14-18, 2016. Join us for five days of tutorials, data exploration, software development and community networking, focused on open source tools to analyze and visualize geospatial data. Our event will include a team from Google Earth Engine who will lead a series of workshops.
Several organizers have expertise in glaciology and can provide guidance on handling of field and remote sensing datasets related to the study of ice.
Charting the course for climate and ocean research
Sun, 09/18/2016 to Sun, 09/25/2016
The collective voice and expertise of the international climate community is essential in shaping the international research agenda on the coupled ocean-atmosphere system. The World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Core Project on Climate and Ocean – CLIVAR - invites the international climate community to review the state of the science, to prioritize international research plans and to initiate new collaborations. In September 2016 CLIVAR will hold an Open Science Conference to engage the wider collection of scientists who work in this important area.
The WIHAH conference is bringing together Alaskan, U.S., and international engineers, health experts, researchers, community members, policymakers, and innovators to discuss health benefits, challenges and innovations associated with making running water and sewer in remote northern communities safe, affordable and sustainable. A conference proceedings publication and a summary report of the meeting will be produced. This conference will consist of expert speaker and poster presentation sessions, along with selected innovative technical demonstrations.
On 22 September 2016, during the APECS International Polar Week Autumn, we organize an OPEN social and networking event for young scientists with an interest in polar research.
BSc, MSc, PhD, Postdoc and other young scientists are welcome!
Our aim is to get an overview of the polar research taking place in Göteborg and to stimulate interdisciplinary exchange and networking. The meeting will include oral presentations and a poster session accompanied by ‘fika’. In the evening, you are welcome to join us and continue with an informal social activities and dinner.
The Administration will host the first-ever White House Arctic Science Ministerial, bringing together leaders from foreign governments around the world to expand joint collaborations focused on Arctic science, research, observations, monitoring, and data-sharing.
