The in-situ snow broadband albedo is automatically measured in many stations that monitor the surface radiation budget, and is used (a) to test snow albedo parameterizations, (b) to validate remote sensing snow albedo products, (c) as input parameter for snow, hydrological, and atmospheric models, and (d) for climate studies.
International Research and Practice Conference "Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials" will be organised for the fifth time. It is a large-scale event, which every year becomes larger and more important. In 2012 International Research and Practice Conference was held for the first time in the format of International Summer School for young scientists "Nanotechnology: from fundamental research to innovations".
The University of Vienna, in cooperation with the European University in St. Petersburg is pleased to announce a call for applications for a PhD summer school (VASS) that will take place in late summer 2016. The course will take place in Vienna, Austria with a field trip to the Austrian Alps.
Held once every four years, the IUCN World Conservation Congress brings together several thousand leaders and decision-makers from government, civil society, indigenous peoples, business, and academia, with the goal of conserving the environment and harnessing the solutions nature offers to global challenges.
Coastal systems in transition: From a 'natural' to an 'anthropogenically-modified' state
Sun, 09/04/2016 to Wed, 09/07/2016
Welcome to ECSA’s next major symposium, ECSA 56 – Coastal systems in transition from a ‘natural’ to an ‘anthropogenically modified’ state.
Humans are drivers of and affected by global change. Human-induced global climate and regional environmental change dramatically modify the structures and functions of coastal systems driving them into a new system state. The altered resource potentials and ecosystem services then, in turn, significantly affect the livelihoods of the population.
The conference is intended to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas between planetary and terrestrial scientists interested in Mars polar and climate research. In recognition of the broad scope, interdisciplinary nature and strong international interest in this topic, we welcome participation of any interested scientist with relevant theoretical, experimental or field experience.
Contributions from the glaciological community on Mars polar research or terrestrial analog studies are welcome!
University of Southampton, Southampton, United Kingdom
Geography and Environment at the University of Southampton is delighted to be hosting the British Branch meeting of the International Glaciological Society.
The conference will include oral and poster presentations, spread over two days, on a wide range of snow and ice research. Registration and accommodation costs will be kept to a minimum and delegates from overseas are very much welcome to attend.
The Arctic-FROST research coordination network announces the availability of travel awards for Early Career Researchers to attend The Third Arctic-FROST network meeting and Early Career Scholars Workshop on Arctic Sustainability in the Global Context.
The theme of the 14th ICRSS symposium is Remote Sensing applications for addressing emerging research questions and management needs in polar regions. This symposium is unique in that it deals specifically with remote sensing applications in Arctic and Antarctic environments and how the broad suite of remotely sensed information and remote sensing techniques can provide much needed information for rapidly changing polar regions.
