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.
The Arctic-FROST research coordination network is pleased to announce the availability of travel awards for Early Career Researchers to attend The Third Arctic-FROST network meeting and Early Career Scholars Workshop on Community Sustainability in the Arctic in Narsaq, Greenland (September 13-17, 2017).
The institute of physico-chemical and biological problems in soil science are glad to announce that traditional permafrost conference will be organised June 4-8. The motto for 2017 conference is "Earth's Cryosphere: Past, Present and Future".
We are glad to meet with you in Pushchino near Moscow, Russia. The conference fee is 7000₽ (~100$) and 2000₽ (~30$) for students; it covers participant’s set, coffee and lunch during the working days and permafrost dinner at one of the evenings (with dancing for sure). You can find hotel for you at booking.com, or ask our advice.
The conference aims to bring together scientists from many disciplines, all interested in quantifying Earth (surface) processes by innovative techniques: seismologists, geophysicists, glaciologists, hydrologists, climatologists and geomorphologists.
If you are interested please visit the website above, where you can browse the topics and general theme and submit a short motivation and abstract.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact enviroseis at gfz-potsdam.de
The 74th Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held at University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada. The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology. This year's general theme is "Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere".
This cruise and pre-cruise information workshop will instruct early career marine scientists, including PhD students, post docs, and first or second year faculty members, on how to effectively plan for, acquire, and utilize time at sea for multi-disciplinary research and education.
The program will begin in Duluth, Minnesota and end in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
This course will include a four-day cruise on the University of Minnesota's research vessel Blue Heron on Lakes Superior and Michigan,
as well as a pre-cruise workshop.
The Arctic is home to approximately four million people, counting numerous ethnicities among its inhabitants. More than ten percent of the total population living in the Arctic is Indigenous peoples. In modern times, rapid and extensive changes has brought opportunities but also challenges to peoples and places in the north, including climate change, industrial extraction, pollution, globalization, migration, food and water insecurity, and widening socio-economic gaps.
The annual conference for the SciTS community will be hosted by the University of Central Florida, Orlando, Florida. Registration will be open in early 2017 with abstracts due spring 2017.
The Science of Team Science (SciTS) is a rapidly growing cross-disciplinary field of study that aims to build an evidence-base and to develop translational applications to help maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of team-based research.
The Understanding Peace in the Arctic conference is a timely international event that will bring together international researchers that contribute to the understanding of the Arctic, ranging from natural sciences, to social sciences and art. The link between science/research and policy(making) is a central feature of Arctic affairs, not least as the region is undergoing rapid changes and science is demonstrating that there is an urgent need to act.
