We are pleased to announce that Durham University will be hosting this year's UK Antarctic Science Conference on 10th-12th September 2018 (the conference will run from Monday lunchtime to Wednesday lunchtime). The conference will include oral and poster presentations, and abstracts are invited on any aspect of Antarctic Research.
Further information can be found on the conference website, which will be updated shortly with details of registration, abstract submission, and accommodation booking.
Polar Regions in Transformation - Climatic Change and Anthropogenic Pressures
Mon, 09/10/2018 to Fri, 09/14/2018
Earth's Polar Regions feature cold-climate environments characterized by unique landscapes, biota, and processes. Many of these features and dynamics are Cryosphere-driven and either are already subject to or have the potential for fundamental and rapid changes in a warming world. Earth observation technologies provide crucial tools to understand and quantify these changes.
This symposium deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic.
The course provides a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions. Topics include: continuum mechanics, sliding and hydraulics, numerical modelling, polar meteorology, ice-ocean interaction, ice cores, interaction of ice sheets with the solid earth, etc. The course is meant for Ph.D. students that work on a glaciology-related climate project. Some places are available for junior scientists.
The next Karthaus course will be held from 11 to 22 September 2018 in Karthaus (northern Italy).
The 25th annual West Antarctic Ice Sheet Workshop will be held this September at Stony Point Center in Stony Point, NY, followed seamlessly by the Thwaites Glacier Program meeting. The WAIS Workshop begins Sunday late afternoon, September 16 and ends with a 1-1/2 day section on Thwaites and Pine Island Glacier and the planned Thwaites Glacier
The 2018 EUMETSAT Meteorological Satellite Conference will be joined in the organisation and hosting of the event by the Estonian Environment Agency, the national provider for weather and climate services in Estonia.
The conference date is very fitting as it coincides with the celebration of the Centenary of the Republic of Estonia.
The Arctic-FROST research coordination network is pleased to announce the availability of travel awards for Early Career Researchers to attend The Fifth Arctic-FROST network meeting and Early Career Scholars Workshop.
Polar regions and cryosphere in the context of global warming
Mon, 09/24/2018 to Sat, 09/29/2018
The Symposium will cover a wide range of cryospheric topics. It is expected that presentations will describe results of recent investigations devoted to the main key issues of present-day glaciology. Each oral presentation will be allowed 20 minutes, including discussion. Working languages are Russian and English (no simultaneous translation will be provided). Abstracts of presentations should be addressed to Muraviev Anton Yaroslavovich (muraviev [at] igras.ru) not later than, June 01, 2018.

Following on from the "15 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2006, and the "20 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry" Symposium in 2012, both deemed a very successful landmark by the participants and the readership of the Proceedings, we have now reached the 25-year anniversary of the first supply of ERS-1 and TOPEX/Poseidon data products to the Altimetric Community.
The PhD course is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (glaciological, oceanographic, climate modelers, earth scientists). ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.
This course will educate young scientists regarding new methods developed for the analysis of ice cores with regard to climate research, with dedicated theoretical and laboratory exercise sessions.
