In addition to the annual October Assemblies in Iceland, the Arctic Circle convenes smaller and more specialized forums in other countries. Together with the Government of Québec, the Arctic Circle will convene its next forum in Québec City.
Abstract submission for the 14th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography, held as part of the 97th Annual Meeting of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) is now open. Submissions on all aspects of polar weather, climate, and oceanography are being solicited. The conference will include invited and contributed oral and poster presentations, joint sessions between other relevant AMS conferences, and activities for early career polar scientists on behalf of the Association for Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS).
The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.
Join us in this workshop to explore the possible links between Arctic change and mid-latitude climate and weather that has spurred a rush of new observational and modeling studies.
The 3rd Snow Science Winter School will be arranged by WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF and Finnish Meteorological Institute at the FMI Arctic Research Centre in Sodankylä, Finland. The school will teach advanced field techniques and relate these measurements to microwave and spectral albedo measurements. The course will consist of field and laboratory measurements combined with theoretical lessons in the classroom.
