International Scientific Cooperation in the Arctic in the Era on Climate Change
Wed, 05/13/2020 to Thu, 05/14/2020
The Russian State Hydrometeorological University, St. Petersburg, Russia
The Russian State Hydrometeorological University is pleased to invite you to join the Arctic Days in St. Petersburg–2020: “International Scientific Cooperation in the Arctic in the Era on Climate Change” held in St. Petersburg on May 13–14, 2020.
The Alaska Fire Science Consortium is working with the NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) to organize a hands-on workshop on using their data and products in operational and decision-making settings. The workshop will be coordinated with the 6th ABoVE Science Team Meeting in Fairbanks, May 11-14, 2020, with the workshop starting after lunch on Thursday, May 14, and continuing all day Friday, May 15. Managers are welcome to attend the Science Team Meeting as well.
In 2020, Russia and the world scientific community will celebrate two significant dates - the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Russian sailors and the 100th anniversary of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, which is one of the largest scientific institutions in the world engaged in the study of polar regions. Over the past periods, extensive experience in research projects within the Arctic and Antarctic has been accumulated, which requires reflection and detailed consideration.
Speaking: Rick Thoman, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy (ACCAP)
University of Alaska Fairbanks, or online: 12:00-1:00 pm AKDT, 4:00-5:00 pm EDT
The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center’s forecast for the coming months. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
Available online or in-person at: Room 407 in the Akasofu Building on the UAF Campus in Fairbanks.
The CMOS Congress in 2020 in Ottawa has the unique opportunity to highlight to policy makers the national observations, research and services that contribute substantively to reduction of society’s risk to extreme weather, climate and environmental events and to outline the challenges facing us in managing our Future Earth environment and societal resilience.
The PalaeoArc is a network research programme aiming to further understand past and present environmental changes and processes in the Arctic. It is the successor of the previous network programmes of PONAM (Polar North Atlantic Margins), QUEEN (Quaternary Environment of the Eurasian North), APEX (Arctic Palaeoclimate and its Extremes) and, most recently, PAST Gateways (Palaeo-Arctic Spatial and Temporal Gateways).
Towards an Understanding and Assessment of Human Impact on Coastal Marine Environments
Mon, 05/25/2020 to Fri, 05/29/2020
The coastal ocean is under increasing multiple (climate and not-climate) pressures that affect its functioning and health, and compromise the provision of services to the society. The set-up of a scientifically underpinned ecosystem-based management scheme for the coastal ocean requires a thorough understanding of human impacts on the physics, biogeochemistry and biodiversity at large scale.
The Role of the Cryosphere in the Past, Present and Future of the Earth
Tue, 05/26/2020 to Fri, 05/29/2020
St. Petersburg, Russia
The XVII Glaciological Symposium will cover a wide range of cryospheric topics. It is expected that for the most part, presentations will describe results of recent investigations devoted to the main key issues of present-day glaciology. Each oral presentation will be allowed 20 minutes, including discussion. Poster sessions and discussion will also be scheduled. Working languages are Russian and English (no simultaneous translation will be provided). Please follow the link above for abstracts requirements.
(Im)migration in the north is not a new phenomenon, but indeed an unexplored area of research and development. The Arctic region is facing new problems and challenges along the side of the already existing ones of Arctic migration. Asylum flows, refugees are a growing group of inhabitants in the Arctic. Cultural differences, acceptance of foreign citizens in the local communities, integration into local communities and labour market are some of the issues, which need cross border cooperation in order to contribute to innovative solutions.
