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 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.
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.
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:
A Knowledge Exchange Workshop of the SEARCH Sea Ice Action Team
Wed, 09/14/2016 to Fri, 09/16/2016
1201 New York Avenue, Fourth Floor - Washington, DC 20005
As the Arctic experiences rapid reductions in Arctic sea ice, there is unprecedented need for collaborative science and actionable knowledge to support appropriate responses from a growing variety of decision-makers. In September 2016, the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) Sea Ice Action Team (SIAT) will hold a knowledge exchange workshop to bring together a diverse array of Arctic scientists, stakeholders, and decision makers to discuss the state of and opportunities for actionable Arctic science and knowledge.
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.
The Arctic Circle is an annual open assembly that takes place in mid-October in Reykjavík, Iceland. The annual program is designed in collaboration with partnering organizations. The Arctic Circle facilitates working meetings across issues and organizations and provides a forum for discussions hosted by different international and Arctic institutions. Following meetings, participating organizations are invited to contribute ideas for the next year's Arctic Circle assembly.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.
