Upcoming Events

and the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting
When: 
Tue, 01/28/2020 to Thu, 01/30/2020
Where: 
Obergurgl, Austria

In addition to sessions on glacier dynamics and mass balance, the workshop will host a cross-cutting activity by the Cryosphere and Marine Working Groups of IASC on “Glacier-ocean interactions and their impact on Arctic marine ecosystems”. This activity aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum by bringing together glaciologists, marine ecologists and oceanographers interested in glacier-ocean interactions and to stimulate future collaborations.

When: 
Tue, 01/28/2020 to Fri, 01/31/2020
Where: 
Bolzano/Bozen, Italy

Snow is an important component of the hydrologic cycle. The seasonal storage of water in the snowpack may last over months, and its delayed release is a major factor in guaranteeing a reliable water supply for ecosystems and human needs during dry periods. On the other hand, rapid snowmelt can cause destruction through sudden floods, mostly in combination with rainfall.

The FRAM Centre, Nature Climate Change, and Nature Reviews Earth and Environment are pleased to present A Changing Arctic, which will take place June 2-5, 2020 in Tromsø, Norway.

Robust evidence now exists for anthropogenically-forced shifts in the Earth's environment. Observations in the Arctic reveal dramatic reductions in the extent and thickness of the sea ice, rising atmospheric temperatures, widespread permafrost degradation and ocean acidification. These changes bring with them implications for biology, ecosystem services and society in general.

When: 
Mon, 02/03/2020 to Wed, 02/05/2020
Where: 
University of Bern, Switzerland

The 9th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) will be held at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland.

The cryosphere of the Earth is undergoing dramatic changes. Glaciers are retreating at accelerated rate and snow cover distribution and duration is changing with many significant side-effects (run-off, permafrost, albedo, etc.). Remote Sensing can provide the required data to study these changes of the cryosphere.

When: 
Tue, 02/04/2020 to Fri, 02/07/2020
Where: 
Frascati (Rome), Italy

The Coastal Altimetry Community, that is the international community of scientists, engineers and managers working on developing applications of altimetry in the coastal zone, invites you to the European Space Agency establishment in Frascati (Italy), ESA-ESRIN, for the 12th Edition of the Coastal Altimetry Workshop (CAW-12), including a Coastal Altimetry Training for Early Career Scientists.

Interactions Between Ocean and Terrestrial Ecosystems
When: 
Wed, 02/12/2020 to Sat, 02/15/2020
Where: 
České Budějovice, Czech Republic

We would like to invite you to the 4th Polar Ecology Conference organised by the Centre for Polar Ecology at University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Czech Republic. The conference theme is “Interactions between Ocean and Terrestrial Ecosystems”. However, we accept submission of abstracts from all polar disciplines.

Registration is now open and there are no conference fees but the attendee list is limited to 70 participants.

Registration and abstract submission deadline is 30 November, 2019.

When: 
Fri, 02/14/2020

The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Ice Streams and Outlet Glaciers’ in 2020. The symposium will be hosted by the Department of Geography, Durham University, Durham, UK on 19–24 July 2020.

THEME:

Snow in a changing climate, impact on human and nature
When: 
Sun, 02/16/2020 to Sat, 02/22/2020
Where: 
Col du Lautaret, France

The Snow Science Winter School aims to teach modern techniques of snow measurements, based on a field training and theoretical lessons. It includes the practice with some of the state-of-the-art snow measurement techniques (specific surface area by reflection and spectroscopy, near-infrared photography, high-resolution penetrometry, micro-tomography, etc). Students will learn about how to characterize the snow cover, what are the fundamental processes responsible for its evolution, and how does it interacts with the environment.

When: 
Sun, 02/16/2020 to Fri, 02/21/2020
Where: 
San Diego, California

The Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community. As we approach the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, beginning in 2021, it is increasingly important to gather as a scientific community to raise awareness of the truly global dimension of the ocean, address environmental challenges, and set forth on a path towards a resilient planet.

When: 
Tue, 02/18/2020 to Fri, 02/21/2020
Where: 
Banff, Alberta, Canada

The 3rd Canadian Polar Data Workshop will be structured to reach specific outcomes through working group sessions and consensus building on themes such as the need for a national data management strategy for Canada, data discovery and federated search, all aspects of data interoperability, and other themes related to polar data broadly defined, including knowledge transfer and Indigenous data policies.
