Morillo de Tou and Zaragoza, Spain
The Open Science Meeting (OSM) and the associated Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) are the premier scientific events of Past Global Changes (PAGES), a core project of Future Earth and a scientific partner of the World Climate Research Programme.
PAGES and the local organizing committee, Quaternary Terrestrial Environments group (Pyrenean Institute of Ecology-CSIC), welcome you to Spain.
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.
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.
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 institute of physico-chemical and biological problems in soil science are glad to announce that traditional permafrost conference will be organised June 4-8. The motto for 2017 conference is "Earth's Cryosphere: Past, Present and Future".
We are glad to meet with you in Pushchino near Moscow, Russia. The conference fee is 7000₽ (~100$) and 2000₽ (~30$) for students; it covers participant’s set, coffee and lunch during the working days and permafrost dinner at one of the evenings (with dancing for sure). You can find hotel for you at booking.com, or ask our advice.
The conference aims to bring together scientists from many disciplines, all interested in quantifying Earth (surface) processes by innovative techniques: seismologists, geophysicists, glaciologists, hydrologists, climatologists and geomorphologists.
If you are interested please visit the website above, where you can browse the topics and general theme and submit a short motivation and abstract.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact enviroseis at gfz-potsdam.de
The 74nd Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held at University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada. The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology. This year's general theme is "Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere".
The Arctic is home to approximately four million people, counting numerous ethnicities among its inhabitants. More than ten percent of the total population living in the Arctic is Indigenous peoples. In modern times, rapid and extensive changes has brought opportunities but also challenges to peoples and places in the north, including climate change, industrial extraction, pollution, globalization, migration, food and water insecurity, and widening socio-economic gaps.
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:
