The Government of Iceland in collaboration with the Nordic Council of Ministers is hosting an International Symposium on Plastics in the Arctic and Sub-Arctic Region in April 2020 in connection with the Icelandic Chairmanship of the Arctic Council.
Iceland holds the Chairmanship of the Arctic Council from May 2019 to May 2021 and intends during this period to promote discussion on ways and means that may reduce the impact of plastics in the Arctic Marine Environment.
The EGU General Assembly 2020 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.
The deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2020, 13:00 CET or, for those applying for EGU Roland Schlich travel support, 1 December 2019, 13:00 CET.
The Alaska Fire Science Consortium is working with the NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) to organize a hands-on workshop on using their data and products in operational and decision-making settings. The workshop will be coordinated with the 6th ABoVE Science Team Meeting in Fairbanks, May 11-14, 2020, with the workshop starting after lunch on Thursday, May 14, and continuing all day Friday, May 15. Managers are welcome to attend the Science Team Meeting as well.
Towards an Understanding and Assessment of Human Impact on Coastal Marine Environments
Mon, 05/25/2020 to Fri, 05/29/2020
The coastal ocean is under increasing multiple (climate and not-climate) pressures that affect its functioning and health, and compromise the provision of services to the society. The set-up of a scientifically underpinned ecosystem-based management scheme for the coastal ocean requires a thorough understanding of human impacts on the physics, biogeochemistry and biodiversity at large scale.
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.
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.
