We are excited to invite you to the first UArctic Congress, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, from September 12-16, 2016. It will be hosted by Saint Petersburg State University and will feature Science and Meeting sections, including:
The theme of the 14th ICRSS symposium is Remote Sensing applications for addressing emerging research questions and management needs in polar regions. This symposium is unique in that it deals specifically with remote sensing applications in Arctic and Antarctic environments and how the broad suite of remotely sensed information and remote sensing techniques can provide much needed information for rapidly changing polar regions.
As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a new advanced Cryosphere Training Course devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from ESA and operational EO Missions (e.g. the Sentinels) for science and applications development.
The International Glaciological Society, the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences and the WCRP Climate and Cryosphere Project invite you to attend the 'International Symposium on The Cryosphere in a Changing Climate', due to be held from 12-17 February 2017, in Wellington, New Zealand.
This session invites contributions to discuss all the aspects of the cryosphere interacting with the climate system, at various time scales and from both modelling and observational point of view and addressing past, present and future variability. The cryosphere represents one of the Earth system compartments' surface portion where links to the climate system are particularly strong.
The course provides a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions. The course is meant for Ph.D. students that work on (or will soon start working on) a glaciology-related climate project. A few places are available for junior scientists.

As the Arctic experiences rapid changes in the marine environment, there is unprecedented need for effective communication, collaborative science, and actionable knowledge to support responses by a variety of stakeholders. This workshop will focus on the implications of diminishing Arctic sea ice by convening diverse science experts, decision-makers, Arctic residents, industry specialists, NGO's, and other stakeholders to define and address important societal questions.
Charting the course for climate and ocean research
Sun, 09/18/2016 to Sun, 09/25/2016
The collective voice and expertise of the international climate community is essential in shaping the international research agenda on the coupled ocean-atmosphere system. The World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Core Project on Climate and Ocean – CLIVAR - invites the international climate community to review the state of the science, to prioritize international research plans and to initiate new collaborations. In September 2016 CLIVAR will hold an Open Science Conference to engage the wider collection of scientists who work in this important area.
