Innovative technologies in geology, geophysics, and geography are of great importance due to their close connections with various applied problems and tasks such as search for mineral deposits and their exploration, evaluation of engineering-geological conditions and environments, including forecasting of catastrophic geological processes and phenomena.
The World Climate Research Program (WCRP), jointly with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), announces a call for abstracts for the Regional Sea Level Changes and Coastal Impacts Conference.
The International Scientific Committee of Antarctic Research (SCAR) Biology symposia were initiated in 1973 with the purpose of bringing fundamental and applied scientists together with an interest in Antarctic terrestrial and marine life sciences, including man. Symposium themes under consideration include: Distribution and trends; Adaptation and processes; New insights through multi-disciplinary research; Threats and impacts: from the poles to the globe to the poles; Societal impact of Antarctic biological science; Human biology at the poles.
The main goal of the Joint Summer School 2017 is to provide participants with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterise complex terrain and objects using close-, near range and remote sensing techniques. The Summer School will be the second edition after a successful first version in 2015.
Organizers announce a call for abstracts for the 21st Northern Research Basins (NRB) Symposium and Workshop entitled, "Cold-region hydrology in non-stationary world."
Climate and landscape changes are causing the transformation of hydrological cycle in Arctic regions, with major impacts on society. The
21st NRB workshop will address the issues of hydrological research in cold regions, both in fundamental scientific and applied aspects,
including the studies of snow, glaciers, permafrost, frozen ground, groundwater, seasonally frozen rivers, and lakes.
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
Conversations from the North: Scholars of many disciplines and inhabitants of many places in dialogue with one another, with animals and plants, and with the land
Sun, 08/27/2017 to Tue, 08/29/2017
University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom
The conference is being held in association with the 11th Rectors’ Forum of the University of the Arctic. The goal of the conference is to celebrate the University’s emergence as a world-leading centre for interdisciplinary research on the circumpolar North.
The conference will be fully interdisciplinary, with themes including:
