Impacts of a Changing Environment on the Dynamics of High-latitude Fish and Fisheries
Tue, 05/09/2017 to Fri, 05/12/2017
Hotel Captain Cook, Anchorage, Alaska
This symposium examines the impacts of the environment, especially climate change and variability, on the dynamics of arctic and subarctic species of commercial, subsistence, and ecological importance.
An international conference on high latitude dust will take place at the University of Iceland from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th May 2017. This will be the first such conference and focuses on all aspects of dust which is sourced from within the high latitudes (North of 50 deg. N and south of 40 deg. S). The meeting will include optional field excursions in southern Iceland.
The 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) and the Canadian Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (CSAFM) will be held at the beautiful University of British Columbia (UBC) campus in Vancouver from Sunday May 28 to Wednesday May 31, 2017.
At this time, we invite you to propose scientific sessions for the meeting:
The FRISP meeting is for scientists working on ice shelf processes meeting in an informal setting and exchanging ideas, results and field plans. As always, we welcome presentations on all aspects of ice shelf research, including, but not limited to:
Depths and Surfaces: Understanding the Antarctic Region through the Humanities and Social Sciences
Wed, 07/05/2017 to Fri, 07/07/2017
University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia
Antarctica rarely makes it onto the map of the humanities and social sciences. While artists have produced responses to the continent for centuries, non-scientific researchers have been reluctant to venture intellectually into the far southern latitudes. The continent’s lack of an indigenous or permanent human population, together with a popular Antarctic exceptionalism which frames the continent as immune to the political, social and economic forces that affect the rest of the globe, has made it seem off-limits to analysis outside of a scientific framework.
Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
Wed, 08/09/2017 to Sat, 08/12/2017
Increasing focus on the Arctic region due to climate change and natural resources such as oil and minerals has made Greenland a hot topic recently and it is of course an excellent place to meet and discuss polar and alpine microbiology.
The theme of PAM 2017 will be: Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.
The 9th International Conference on Geomorphology of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) will take place in New Delhi at Vigyan Bhawan from 6 to 11 November, 2017. The main theme of this Conference is “Geomorphology and Society”.
Organized by the Indian Institute of Geomorphologists and open to all scientists and practitioners, this Conference will include scientific sessions, keynote lectures and a Workshop devoted to Young Geomorphologists.
