International Research and Practice Conference "Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials" will be organised for the fifth time. It is a large-scale event, which every year becomes larger and more important. In 2012 International Research and Practice Conference was held for the first time in the format of International Summer School for young scientists "Nanotechnology: from fundamental research to innovations".
Finnish Meteorological Institute, Helsinki, Finland
The in-situ snow broadband albedo is automatically measured in many stations that monitor the surface radiation budget, and is used (a) to test snow albedo parameterizations, (b) to validate remote sensing snow albedo products, (c) as input parameter for snow, hydrological, and atmospheric models, and (d) for climate studies.
The University of Vienna, in cooperation with the European University in St. Petersburg is pleased to announce a call for applications for a PhD summer school (VASS) that will take place in late summer 2016. The course will take place in Vienna, Austria with a field trip to the Austrian Alps.
Coastal systems in transition: From a 'natural' to an 'anthropogenically-modified' state
Sun, 09/04/2016 to Wed, 09/07/2016
Welcome to ECSA’s next major symposium, ECSA 56 – Coastal systems in transition from a ‘natural’ to an ‘anthropogenically modified’ state.
Humans are drivers of and affected by global change. Human-induced global climate and regional environmental change dramatically modify the structures and functions of coastal systems driving them into a new system state. The altered resource potentials and ecosystem services then, in turn, significantly affect the livelihoods of the population.
The conference is intended to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas between planetary and terrestrial scientists interested in Mars polar and climate research. In recognition of the broad scope, interdisciplinary nature and strong international interest in this topic, we welcome participation of any interested scientist with relevant theoretical, experimental or field experience.
Contributions from the glaciological community on Mars polar research or terrestrial analog studies are welcome!
The Arctic-FROST research coordination network announces the availability of travel awards for Early Career Researchers to attend The Third Arctic-FROST network meeting and Early Career Scholars Workshop on Arctic Sustainability in the Global Context.
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:
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.
