Where: 
Zurich, Switzerland

For the seventh time the Alpine Glaciology/Glaciologist Meeting (AGM) will be hosted in Zürich, Switzerland. The meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers and permafrost. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young researchers are especially encouraged to present their work in progress.

When: 
Mon, 02/06/2017 to Thu, 02/09/2017
Where: 
Hyytaila, Finland

The workshop is open to all scientists interested in detailed observations of energetic, hydrological and chemical fluxes at the surface-atmosphere interface and how these may be used to understand and model the Arctic climate system. The Workshop is bringing professional and scientific experts together under research themes related to biogeochemistry, surface energy balance, atmospheric sciences, permafrost, hydrology, modeling, and remote sensing to help coordinate and synthesize polar flux data and models as an integrated systems of energy, moisture and chemical exchange.

Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow
When: 
Tue, 02/07/2017 to Thu, 02/09/2017
Where: 
Bern, Switzerland

You are cordially invited to attend the 8th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL), which is to be held at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland.

Where: 
Sodankylä, Finland

The 3rd Snow Science Winter School will be arranged by WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF and Finnish Meteorological Institute at the FMI Arctic Research Centre in Sodankylä, Finland. The school will teach advanced field techniques and relate these measurements to microwave and spectral albedo measurements. The course will consist of field and laboratory measurements combined with theoretical lessons in the classroom.

Future Earth Norway, Nord University and UiT The Arctic University of Norway invite PhD students working in fields relevant to healthy oceans and the sustainable utilization of resources to a week-long interdisciplinary PhD course in marine sustainability.

We start in Bodø with lectures, a field trip and side event. We then board the Hurtigruten for stakeholder dialogues with some stops along the way in the Lofoten Islands. We´ll finish in Tromsø with further lectures, group work and another side event.
