Where: 
University of Leeds, England

As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a new advanced Cryosphere Training Course devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from ESA and operational EO Missions (e.g. the Sentinels) for science and applications development.

When: 
Mon, 09/12/2016 to Fri, 09/16/2016
Where: 
St. Petersburg, Russia

We are excited to invite you to the first UArctic Congress, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, from September 12-16, 2016. It will be hosted by Saint Petersburg State University and will feature Science and Meeting sections, including:

When: 
Mon, 09/12/2016 to Fri, 09/16/2016
Where: 
Trieste, Italy

This session invites contributions to discuss all the aspects of the cryosphere interacting with the climate system, at various time scales and from both modelling and observational point of view and addressing past, present and future variability. The cryosphere represents one of the Earth system compartments' surface portion where links to the climate system are particularly strong.

When: 
Tue, 09/13/2016 to Sat, 09/24/2016
Where: 
Karthaus, Italy

The course provides a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions. The course is meant for Ph.D. students that work on (or will soon start working on) a glaciology-related climate project. A few places are available for junior scientists.

Deadline for applications is 23 May 2016.

The collective voice and expertise of the international climate community is essential in shaping the international research agenda on the coupled ocean-atmosphere system. The World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Core Project on Climate and Ocean – CLIVAR - invites the international climate community to review the state of the science, to prioritize international research plans and to initiate new collaborations. In September 2016 CLIVAR will hold an Open Science Conference to engage the wider collection of scientists who work in this important area.
