As AGU marks its Centennial in 2019, we return to San Francisco, the home of the AGU Fall Meeting for more than 40 years. Join our diverse community at the newly renovated Moscone Center as we collaborate across borders and boundaries to explore and develop our research. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in Centennial presentations and special events that will bring to life the past, present and the future of our science.
The “Arctic Week” is a one-week international conference that provides transdisciplinary approaches to climate and environmental changes in the Arctic. It aims to provide an overview of the different challenges of the Arctic regions, as understood by Arctic peoples and by researchers. In a desire to pursue the interdisciplinary approach to environmental and climate changes initiated at the first edition, combining human and social sciences, environmental sciences, as well as indigenous peoples and international students.
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 January 2020! and the late winter/early spring season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
The AMS Past, Present and Future: Linking Information to Knowledge to Society (LINKS)
Sun, 01/12/2020 to Thu, 01/16/2020
As the American Meteorological Society enters its 2nd century, the theme for the 2020 AMS Annual Meeting is “The AMS Past, Present and Future: Linking Information to Knowledge to Society (LINKS).” LINKS applies to research, broadcast, WX service & other government services, industry applications, risk management, education, policy, communications and watch/warning responses, building links across technologies, links across research & applications, and more.
The 9th Workshop on Remote Sensing of Land Ice and Snow of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) will be held at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland.
The cryosphere of the Earth is undergoing dramatic changes. Glaciers are retreating at accelerated rate and snow cover distribution and duration is changing with many significant side-effects (run-off, permafrost, albedo, etc.). Remote Sensing can provide the required data to study these changes of the cryosphere.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Ice Streams and Outlet Glaciers’ in 2020. The symposium will be hosted by the Department of Geography, Durham University, Durham, UK on 19–24 July 2020.
The rapid warming in the Arctic has been revealed, however, the precision of forecasting the future of climate and environmental change is still insufficient for utilization in sustainable development in the Arctic, while interests for resource utilization and economical activities are growing and progressing rapidly. The ISAR is aimed at presenting and discussing the scientific research results together with the Arctic researchers from all over the world, extracting and sharing issues to solve, and exploring the future of the Arctic.
