This symposium examines impacts of the environment, especially climate change and variability, on the dynamics of arctic and subarctic species of commercial, subsistence and ecological importance. We will focus on the effects of warming, loss of sea ice, ocean acidification and oceanographic variability on the distribution, phenology, life history, population dynamics and interactions of species and how a better understanding of these effects can inform the assessment and management of fish and shellfish populations in a changing ocean.
An international conference on high latitude dust will take place at the University of Iceland from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th May 2017. This will be the first such conference and focuses on all aspects of dust which is sourced from within the high latitudes (North of 50 deg. N and south of 40 deg. S). The meeting will include optional field excursions in southern Iceland.
Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
Wed, 08/09/2017 to Sat, 08/12/2017
Increasing focus on the Arctic region due to climate change and natural resources such as oil and minerals has made Greenland a hot topic recently and it is of course an excellent place to meet and discuss polar and alpine microbiology.
The theme of PAM 2017 will be: Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
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.
The 9th International Conference on Geomorphology of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) will take place in New Delhi at Vigyan Bhawan from 6 to 11 November, 2017. The main theme of this Conference is “Geomorphology and Society”.
Organized by the Indian Institute of Geomorphologists and open to all scientists and practitioners, this Conference will include scientific sessions, keynote lectures and a Workshop devoted to Young Geomorphologists.
This will be a joint conference with IASC (International Arctic Science Committee), hosted by the Swiss Committee on Polar and High Altitude Research in Davos, Switzerland. The Conference will include SCAR, IASC and other business and satellite meetings, an Open Science Conference and the SCAR Delegates' Meeting.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
