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.

Mon, 03/27/2017 to Wed, 03/29/2017
Where: 
Bremerhaven, Germany

Jointly organized by the Polar Climate Predictability Initiative (WCRP-PCPI; http://www.climate-cryosphere.org/wcrp/pcpi), the Polar Prediction Project (WWRP-PPP; http://www.polarprediction.net), and the Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN; https://www.arcus.org/sipn), the workshop will be hosted by the International Coordination Office for Polar Prediction at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, Germany.

Where: 
University of Alaska Fairbanks

Background and objectives:

With support from NASA Applied Sciences Program, the Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC) is organizing an international workshop to advance remote sensing tools and data for operational and scientific applications by high northern latitude fire ecology and management communities. Participants will include interagency fire managers as well as scientists with an interest in remote sensing and a variety of disciplines.

Topics of interest include:

Organized by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP)
When: 
Mon, 04/24/2017 to Thu, 04/27/2017
Where: 
Reston, Virginia

Organizers announce a call for abstracts for a conference entitled "International Conference on Arctic Science: Bringing Knowledge to Action," organized by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP).

This conference builds on a previous conference from 2011 entitled "Arctic Messenger of Change Conference." The 2017 conference will provide updated scientific, decision-making, and policy-relevant information across a broad array of different Arctic issues and related scientific disciplines.

The topics that will be addressed are:

When: 
Tue, 05/09/2017 to Fri, 05/12/2017
Where: 
Anchorage, Alaska

This symposium examines impacts of the environment, especially climate change and variability, on the dynamics of arctic and subarctic species of commercial, subsistence and ecological importance. We will focus on the effects of warming, loss of sea ice, ocean acidification and oceanographic variability on the distribution, phenology, life history, population dynamics and interactions of species and how a better understanding of these effects can inform the assessment and management of fish and shellfish populations in a changing ocean.

When: 
Mon, 05/22/2017 to Thu, 05/25/2017
Where: 
University of Iceland, Reykjavik

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.

Scientific themes will include:

Depths and Surfaces: Understanding the Antarctic Region through the Humanities and Social Sciences
When: 
Wed, 07/05/2017 to Fri, 07/07/2017
Where: 
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.

When: 
Mon, 07/10/2017 to Fri, 07/14/2017
Where: 
New York
