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).
Organizers invite registration for the 2018 Arctic Summer Institute titled Arctic Law, Science, and Policy. This pass/fail, two credit or Certificate of Completion course will take place 18-22 June 2018 in Portland, Maine.
The goal of the course is to provide students with an interdisciplinary knowledge base and the tools to practically and responsibly participate in Arctic affairs.

The advent of new, high quality small satellites, and the availability of high-resolution commercial imagery is opening a new era of Arctic science. Every remote corner of the planet now has one foot resolution optical and high quality radar imagery, allowing surface cover and properties relevant to biology, geology, geomorphology, ecology, and cryospheric studies to be seen in ways, rates, and resolutions as never before possible.
The OGGM workshop is an annual, informal meeting for developers, users, and future users of the Open Global Glacier Model (www.oggm.org). For this third edition, we decided to open the event to the wider community.
This workshop has three main objectives:
1) State of OGGM: the first day will be spent with presentations from the participants about recent developments and results.
The Italian Association for the Study of Clays (AISA) and the Institute of Methodologies for Environmental Analysis (IMAA) are pleased to invite you to DUST 2018, the International Conference on Atmospheric Dust. The meeting provides an unique opportunity for mineralogists, physicists, geochemists, engineers, volcanologists, chemists and for many other specialists to share ideas and knowledge on the boundless world of the atmospheric particles.
We are pleased to announce the second field school as a part of the International Partnerships for Excellence in Education and Research (INTPART) project “Arctic Field Summer Schools: Norway-Canada-USA collaboration”. The second field school is organized by the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
PhD School on Ice Core Techniques (ICAT) 2.0 ECTS is to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark from September 24-29, 2018.
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.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Timescales, Processes and Glacier Dynamics’ in 2018. The symposium will be held at the Lafayette Hotel in downtown Buffalo, New York.
We are pleased to invite you to the Fifth Forum for Young Permafrost Scientists to be held in Yakutsk, Russia from 4 to 23 June 2018. This event is open to young researchers under the age of 35 years, including undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. Interested school children are also welcome to participate.
The Forum for Young Permafrost Scientists will include:
The Geocryological Conference held from 4 to 8 June 2018
The Geocryological Field Workshop from 9 to 23 June 2018
