Environmental Changes in Polar Regions: New Problems - New Solutions
The Faculty of Earth Sciences and Spatial Management, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń and the Polar Research Center in cooperation with The Committee on Polar Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Polish Polar Consortium jointly organise the 38th International Polar Symposium "Environmental Changes in Polar Regions: New Problems - New Solutions" to be held on 15-17 October 2020 in Toruń, Poland.
The FRAM Centre, Nature Climate Change, and Nature Reviews Earth and Environment are pleased to present A Changing Arctic.
Robust evidence now exists for anthropogenically-forced shifts in the Earth's environment. Observations in the Arctic reveal dramatic reductions in the extent and thickness of the sea ice, rising atmospheric temperatures, widespread permafrost degradation and ocean acidification. These changes bring with them implications for biology, ecosystem services and society in general.
The Sixth International Summer School in Glaciology will be organized by the University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF).
The course will provide a comprehensive overview of the physics of glaciers and current research frontiers in glaciology with focus on quantitative glaciology and remote sensing. The course is open to 28 graduate students from around the world targeting primarily early stage PhD students who perform glacier-related research. It will be taught by faculty of UAF’s glaciology group and several invited guest instructors from outside Alaska.
The OGGM workshop is an annual, informal meeting for developers, users, and future users of the Open Global Glacier Model (OGGM) model. The workshop is open to any interested scientist (within the limits of our capacities!).
The Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) is a joint Canadian/U.S. organization founded in the 1940s originally with members from eastern North America. Today, our members come from the United Kingdom, Japan and Germany, as well as North America. Our current membership includes scientists, engineers, snow surveyors, technicians, professors, students and professionals involved in operations and maintenance.
Held biennially since 1986, The International Conference on Ground Penetrating Radar is the premier event for GPR research and applications. Drawing together scientists, engineers, industrial delegates and end-users, the conference is a place to see all of the latest GPR developments, ranging from fundamental advances in methods to the most interesting case studies.
ICESat-2 Cryospheric Science Hackweek is a 5-day hackweek to be held at the University of Washington. Participants will learn about technologies used to access and process ICESat-2 data with a focus on the cryosphere. Mornings will consist of interactive lectures, and afternoon sessions will involve facilitated exploration of datasets and hands-on software development.
