Korea Polar Research Institute, Incheon, Republic of Korea

Abstract/registration submission no later than 22 November 2019.

The workshop aims to gather scientists and experts to deliberate on current Arctic issues in a broad context, including climate changes and human security in the Arctic, traditional knowledge and industrial development, collaboration between Arctic and non-Arctic states for pro-active response to rapid Arctic changes.

The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for January 2020! and the late winter/early spring season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.

Quaternary Earth System Processes and Feedbacks: Challenges for Society
When: 
Wed, 01/08/2020 to Fri, 01/10/2020
Where: 
Leeds, Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Quaternary climate feedbacks, tipping points and shifts in system states are important areas of current research (as highlighted by the IPCC, and with UKRI developing funding calls on these themes) as they provide relevant case studies for understanding our currently evolving climate and projecting it into the future. The conference is broad in scope, capturing the range of interests of the members of the QRA, particularly welcoming abstract submissions in the areas of:

When: 
Thu, 01/09/2020 to Fri, 01/10/2020
Where: 
Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom

This workshop is part of a series of research events organised as part of the ERC Arctic Cultures project. It brings together team members, leading international experts and interested scholars into dialogue around the themes of the project. The focus for this workshop specifically is to examine the co-production of Arctic knowledge formations through encounters between indigenous inhabitants and non-indigenous actors. Presentations will draw upon empirical research and theorisation to investigate spatial formations of the Arctic and the role of Northern actors and institutions.

The AMS Past, Present and Future: Linking Information to Knowledge to Society (LINKS)
When: 
Sun, 01/12/2020 to Thu, 01/16/2020
Where: 
Boston, Massachusetts

As the American Meteorological Society enters its 2nd century, the theme for the 2020 AMS Annual Meeting is “The AMS Past, Present and Future: Linking Information to Knowledge to Society (LINKS).” LINKS applies to research, broadcast, WX service & other government services, industry applications, risk management, education, policy, communications and watch/warning responses, building links across technologies, links across research & applications, and more.

When: 
Wed, 01/15/2020

The EGU General Assembly 2020 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna, Austria 3-8 May, 2020.
