Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki, Finland
The Arctic Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) Science Workshop will be jointly organized by the Polar Prediction Project and its International Coordination Office (ICO), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI).
The Arctic Frontiers is a global scientific conference on economic, societal, and environmental sustainable growth. This year's theme will be "Smart Arctic," with a pan-arctic emphasis, and an effort to build new partnerships across nations, generations and ethnic groups. Arctic Frontiers provides a forum for dialogue and communication between science, government and industry. The plenary program will have five main sessions: State of the Arctic, Blue Growth, Smart Solutions, Bridging the Gap, and Arctic business prospects.
The Workshop on the Dynamics and Mass Budget of Arctic Glaciers & the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting will host a cross-cutting activity of the Marine and Cryosphere working groups of IASC: “The importance of Arctic glaciers for the Arctic marine ecosystem”.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Five Decades of Radioglaciology’. The symposium will be held at Stanford University in Stanford, California, USA on 16–21 June 2019.
New Thinking about Local Agriculture in the Circumpolar Arctic - Best Practices, Innovations, and Perspectives
Wed, 03/13/2019 to Fri, 03/15/2019
Arctic Centre, University of Lapland, Rovaniemi, Finland
The conference is the tenth in line of international conferences organized within the framework of CAA (Circumpolar Agriculture Association), aimed at people involved in northern agriculture such as researchers, practitioners, administrators, managers, policy-makers and students. The conference will address a bottom-up approach and new thinking of local agriculture, food production and rural development in the northern areas. The goal is to open up and discuss versatile meanings of circumpolar agriculture and call for new thinking to address its topical challenges and opportunities.
The workshop is jointly organized by the WCRP Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM) CMIP Panel and the European Commission Horizon 2020 project PRIMAVERA (PRocess-based climate sIMulation: AdVances in high-resolution modelling and European climate Risk Assessment) and EUCP (European Climate Prediction system).
Following the format of the WCRP CMIP5 model analysis workshop held in 2012, the workshop focus will be on:
An International Symposium on Mitigation Measures against Snow Avalanches and Other Rapid Gravity Mass Flows will be held in Siglufjörður, N-Iceland, by the Association of Chartered Engineers in Iceland (VFI).
Abstract submission deadline: 31st October 2018. Registration deadline: 15th December 2018
Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA’s Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world. For decades now Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change.
