The OGGM workshop is an annual, informal meeting for developers, users, and future users of the OGGM model. The workshop is open to any interested scientist (within the limits of our capacities!).
Anyone interested in the model, or in glaciological modelling in general! In particular, we would like to encourage potential users and developers to join us to get to know each other and to gather first-hand information about the model internals, as well as PhD students and young scientists. Note that in case of high interest we might have to limit the number of participants.
Speaking: Rick Thoman, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy (ACCAP)
University of Alaska Fairbanks, or online: 12:00pm AKDT, 4:00pm EDT
The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for July 2019 and the fall season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
Available online or in-person at: Room 407 in the Akasofu Building on the UAF Campus in Fairbanks.
This workshop is organized annually by members of the WAMC Planning Committee across the globe. The WAMC brings together those with research and operational/logistical interests in Antarctic meteorology and forecasting and related disciplines. As in the past, the annual activities and status of the Antarctic Meteorological Research Center (AMRC), Automatic Weather Station (AWS), and Antarctic Mesoscale Prediction System (AMPS) efforts will be addressed, and feedback and results from their user communities will be solicited.
AntClim21 would like to announce an upcoming workshop on CMIP6 21st century projections and predictions for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. The aim is to help ensure that the Antarctic and Southern Ocean climate science communities make a significant contribution to the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6).
This Summer School will provide Ph.D. students and junior scientists specializing in sea level research with a basic introduction to the dynamics of current and future sea level change and to state-of-the-art tools to measure and project it. The different contributors to global and regional sea level change will be presented by world-leading experts. The school has a strong component on “hands-on” learning, with practical exercises on the observation and modelling of sea level change, its contributors, and forcing mechanisms.
From Molecules and Microbes to Ecosystems and Health
Tue, 07/02/2019 to Fri, 07/12/2019
Whapmagoostui-Kuujjuarapik, Nunavik, Canada
Under the leadership of the Sentinel North program at Université Laval (Quebec City, Canada), the International PhD School (IPS) is a unique transdisciplinary training program aiming to understand the key role of microbiomes in shaping the structure and functioning of the Arctic, including their impacts on food webs, ecosystem services, and human health.
Following the first edition of this congress, held in Lisbon (Portugal) in 2013 and the second edition organized in Graz (Austria) in 2015, the third edition of STRATI has been assigned by the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) to Italy, a country with a long historical tradition in Stratigraphy since the 17th century. Some milestones in the history of Stratigraphy were added in Italy by outstanding scientists such as Niels Stensen and Giovanni Arduino.
Beyond 100: The Next Century in Earth and Space Science
Mon, 07/08/2019 to Thu, 07/18/2019
Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada
The 27th IUGG General Assembly will be held at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Québec, Canada. This is a special opportunity for participants from Canada and from around the world to come together and share their science and culture. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of IUGG; we will look back on the accomplishments of the previous century of Earth and space science research, and forward to the next century of scientific advancement. Join us for a host of scientific activities, including special public lectures, keynote Union lectures and a wide variety of themed sessions.
The main symposium will take place from Tuesday morning, 9 July, until the afternoon of Friday 12 July. On Monday 8 July there will be a presymposium short-course on ice penetrating radar science and engineering for early-career researchers. Also on Monday 8 July, side meetings will also be scheduled for collaborative radar sounding projects including BedMap3 and the SCAR AntArchitecture project.
