We would like to announce a call for abstracts to the International Atmospheric Rivers Conference Sponsored Symposium which will be held virtually during the week of 5-9 October 2020, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Note that the deadline for abstract submission is July 27th.
Over the last 10 years, CryoSat has not only delivered a wealth of information about Earth’s changing ice, but has also surpassed expectations with a range of results that go far beyond its original goals. While the conference focuses the latest scientific results from the mission, it is also a celebration of the remarkable contribution that CryoSat has made to our understanding of the cryosphere and its role in the Earth system and the climate, and, in turn, the impacts on society.
We at UArctic, together with the local host organizations in Iceland, have made the difficult decision to postpone the UArctic Congress (originally scheduled to take place in Reykjavik Oct 6-8, 2020) until May 2021 in conjunction with the Arctic Council Ministerial.
In an effort to ensure the health and safety of our community, we want to let you all know that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Workshop will not be an in-person meeting this fall. Instead, we are planning to have community-oriented discussions on 6-7 October 2020 focused on addressing racial diversity and inclusion and supporting early-career researchers (ECRs) in the WAIS community.
Unfortunately, due to the recent developments in the COVID pandemic in Latin America and especially in Chile, the 2020 local committee in consultation with the National committee has decided to postpone the 3rd Annual Chilean Cryosphere Society Meeting (SOCHICRI) to March 2021. The specific dates will be communicated soon. Considering the uncertainty regarding the spread of the virus, a new date in March of the following year will allow us to develop a hybrid meeting, with in-person and interactive online attendance.
Although the physical meeting of the International Glaciological Society British Branch is cancelled, there will be a virtual meeting organised by the IGS British Branch and the IGS EGG from 7–9 October 2020.
We are planning 3 half days. There will be both oral and poster sessions. Abstracts are due by 17 August. We will notify you once the abstract submission is up and running.
