The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.
Join us in this workshop to explore the possible links between Arctic change and mid-latitude weather and climate that has spurred a rush of new observational and modeling studies.
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.
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.

The Fletcher Arctic Conference 2017 will be the sixth year in a row of bringing top academic, governmental, and NGO experts to Fletcher to discuss Arctic related topics. In the past participants have included John Kerry, President Grimsson, Amb. Brzezinski, and many others.
ESA will hold the first Cryosat North American Science Meeting. Co-sponsored by a number of international institutions, the meeting is open to all worldwide interested CryoSat stakeholders and data users. There will be no conference fee but the participants are required to finance their own travel and accommodation.
The meeting will provide a unique and timely forum for scientists and end-users of CryoSat data to share the state-of-the-art in research and applications, review mission achievements and prepare for the continued use of the CryoSat mission in the future.
Sessions should address one of the three sub-themes: Changes in the Arctic, Global Implications of Arctic Changes, and Impacts of Global Change on the Arctic. Session proposal deadline is June 30, 2016. To submit a session proposal, go to:
