The cryosphere is the part of the Earth system consisting of all snow, ice and frozen ground, both on and beneath the surface of the Earth, and the oceans. As an integral part of the climate system, the cryosphere responds the quickest to, and is the most representative of, global climate change. It also impacts both bio and anthropogenic systems on different spatial and temporal scales. The theme of this workshop “Cryospheric Change and Sustainable Development” is to improve our understanding of changes in all components of the cryosphere and their interdependence and causes.

Cold-region hydrology in non-stationary world

Where: 
Yakutsk, Russia

Organizers announce a call for abstracts for the 21st Northern Research Basins (NRB) Symposium and Workshop entitled, "Cold-region hydrology in non-stationary world."

Climate and landscape changes are causing the transformation of hydrological cycle in Arctic regions, with major impacts on society. The
21st NRB workshop will address the issues of hydrological research in cold regions, both in fundamental scientific and applied aspects,
including the studies of snow, glaciers, permafrost, frozen ground, groundwater, seasonally frozen rivers, and lakes.
