An international conference on high latitude dust will take place at the University of Iceland from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th May 2017. This will be the first such conference and focuses on all aspects of dust which is sourced from within the high latitudes (North of 50 deg. N and south of 40 deg. S). The meeting will include optional field excursions in southern Iceland.
The exciting topic of Marine Turbulence will be revisited for the 3rd time during “Marine Turbulence Re-visited” as the 49th Liège Colloquium in 2017.
As already in 2007, the workshop will be co-organised together with the Warnemünde Turbulence Days (its 8th edition), a biennial workshop on specific challenges in marine turbulence, organised by the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research in Warnemünde, Germany.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs has issued a new solicitation for Antarctic research proposals.
The NSF-managed U.S. Antarctic Program supports scientific research on the southernmost continent and provides related operational research support. OPP's Antarctic Sciences Section supports research to:
Towards the Future: Trans-regional Cooperation in the Arctic: Development and Protection
Wed, 05/24/2017 to Fri, 05/26/2017
The 5th China-Nordic Arctic Cooperation Symposium, hosted by Dalian Maritime University in collaboration with Polar Research Institute of China, will take place in Dalian, a port city in Northern China, with the conference theme of “Towards the Future: Trans-regional Cooperation in the Arctic: Development and Protection”.
Climate Change Impacts on Surface Water and Groundwater Hydrology in Cold Regions
Sun, 05/28/2017 to Thu, 06/01/2017
Yakutsk (Siberia), Russian Federation
Changing climate conditions are driving the recent intensification of the high–latitude water cycle. Permafrost degradation leads to a transformation of landscape structure causing thermokarst development, enhancing the connectivity between surface and ground water, changing the regime of wetlands, lakes and aquifers, shifting streamflow seasonality and amplitude. New understanding of those processes is required for timely development of adaptation strategies and preventing threats to cold regions worldwide, including economically critical infrastructure.
The 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) and the Canadian Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (CSAFM) will be held at the beautiful University of British Columbia (UBC) campus in Vancouver from Sunday May 28 to Wednesday May 31, 2017.
At this time, we invite you to propose scientific sessions for the meeting:
This summer school will take place at the TU Delft campus, Delft, Netherlands. It will provide Ph.D. students and junior scientists specializing in sea level research with a basic introduction to the dynamics of current and future sea level change and to state-of-the-art tools to measure and project it. The different contributors to global and regional sea level change will be presented by world-leading experts. The School has a strong component on “hands-on” learning, with practical exercises on the observation and modelling of sea level change, its contributors, and forcing mechanisms.
Organizers announce the 3rd Blue Planet Symposium. This symposium will convene at the conference center of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'s Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland.
