The workshop is the 7th in a series that has brought together the community of users and developers of the Open Global Glacier Model (OGGM). This year’s workshop is organized by colleagues based at The University of Edinburgh. It is open to anybody interested in global glacier modeling with focus on active developers and users of OGGM. The primary goal is to discuss the challenges and solutions in modeling glaciers at large scales with OGGM, to learn from each other, and to develop ideas and visions for the advancement of the model.
Note: This conference was originally planned for 5-10 September, 2022, but was postponed to September 2023 as a precaution due to COVID-19 uncertainty.
This conference will cover a wide range of topics related to physical, chemical, biological, geological, and environmental aspects of ice. The topics will range from fundamental to applied research, and will include laboratory, field, modeling, and computational work. The organizers expect to have interdisciplinary discussions of ice.
This autumn the Svalbard Integrated Arctic Earth Observing System (SIOS) offers a training course on how to effectively use UAVs in Svalbard research. The training will be delivered by UAV experts from SIOS member institutions, international researchers, and experts from the industry.
The course is intended for scientists, master/Ph.D. students and technicians with no or modest experience with UAVs in their research. Those who have not used UAVs before are preferable.
The INStabilities & Thresholds in ANTarctica (INSTANT) Scientific Research Programme provides a co-ordinating framework that will augment other important international research initiatives and consortia.
INSTANT aims to quantify the Antarctic ice sheet contribution to past to future sea-level change, from improved understanding of atmosphere, ocean and solid Earth interactions and feedbacks, so that decision-makers can better anticipate and assess the risk in order to manage and adapt to sea-level rise and evaluate mitigation pathways.
The next UK Arctic Science Conference will be hosted by the British Antarctic Survey with support from the NERC Arctic Office in Cambridge. The in-person event will be hosted at the BAS Aurora Innovation Centre in Cambridge. The conference will be hosted in a simple hybrid format over Zoom.
The call for sessions is now open and organizers invite proposals to be submitted.
The ICAT PhD school (2 ECTS) is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (glaciologists, oceanographers, climate modelers, earth scientists).
ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.
This course will educate young scientists regarding new methods developed for the analysis of ice cores with regard to climate research, with dedicated theoretical and laboratory exercise sessions.
The 2023 WAIS Workshop will be hosted at the University of Minnesota's Cloquet Forestry Center in Cloquet, Minnesota. The conference will kick off with an informal dinner on Monday 25 September, and the formal science agenda will conclude by lunch on Thursday 28 September. For 2023, the organizers hope to have a set of Thursday afternoon workshops ranging in topic, likely including education, cloud computing, data archiving, and more.
