Global Ocean State & Parameter Estimation: From Methods to Applications in Oceanographic Research
Sun, 05/19/2019 to Fri, 05/31/2019
University of Washington, Friday Harbor, Washington
The Consortium for "Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean" (ECCO) will host a summer school for graduate students and early career scientists on global ocean state estimation in support of climate research. The school introduces the tools and mathematics of ocean state and parameter estimation and their application to ocean science through a mix of foundational lectures, hands-on tutorials, and projects.
Climate Change and Security of the Arctic Population
Wed, 05/22/2019 to Thu, 05/30/2019
The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) was initiated by IASC in 1999 to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between the various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research and to economize on travel and time. Over the years the summit evolved into the most important annual gathering of the Arctic research organizations. The summit is organized by an International Coordination Group and any organization engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research may participate.
The main goal of the Joint Summer School 2019 is to provide participants with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterize complex terrain and object features using close- and near range remote sensing techniques. The Summer School will be the third edition after two successful implementations in 2015 and 2017.
The Polar Science Center at the University of Washington, in collaboration with the eScience Institute and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), announce a “hackweek” for Cryospheric Science with ICESsat-2 (CSI).
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.
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.
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.
Our Organizing Committee are delighted to bring INQUA to Dublin and we would like to warmly welcome you to the 20th INQUA Congress.
We all have a deep commitment to the Congress and we all want our delegates to thoroughly enjoy the stimulation of multiple scientific sessions in the purpose built Convention centre. In addition we hope you are all looking forward to the warm welcome from Dublin and the Irish people and that you enjoy the magnificent Irish scenery on the various field trips we have organised.
