Serving Society with better Weather and Climate Information
Mon, 09/04/2017 to Fri, 09/08/2017
Helix Conference Centre Dublin, Ireland
A key challenge for the meteorological and climatological communities is how best to harness the wealth of data now available – both observational and modelled – to generate and communicate effectively relevant, tailored, and timely information, ensuring the highest-quality support for users' decision-making.
Lancaster Environment Centre and Lancaster Data Science Institute are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 2017 British Branch meeting of the International Glaciological Society.
The conference will follow the traditional format of oral and poster presentations, spread over two days, on a wide range of snow and ice research and we have three keynote speakers scheduled to present on topics including ice core science, glacier and ice sheet hydrology and glacio-volcanism. Delegates from overseas are very much welcome to attend.
Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
Fri, 09/08/2017 to Tue, 09/12/2017
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 aim of the conference is to present recent results that address still open questions in understanding the sensitivity of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and its contribution to past and future sea level and climate change (http://www.scar.org/horizonscan Kennicutt M.C. Chown S. et al., Nature, 2014).
An important development in understanding and predicting Antarctic ice-sheet behaviour has been the validation and testing of ice sheet models on past climates with boundary conditions that are relevant to future projections.

The course will provide 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. The registration fee will be € 700. This includes lodging, full board, course material and excursion.
Traditions and Transformations in the Sustainability of Rural Communities: Balancing Living Culture and Nature
Wed, 09/13/2017 to Sat, 09/16/2017
Bø in Telemark, Norway
We invite the private, public, and civic sectors as well as researchers, developers, and the academic community. We invite student and community participation and the conference sessions will take place in a variety of settings. The North Atlantic Forum aims to be trans-sectoral and welcomes paper and poster proposals on a variety of topics connected to the conference theme.
Organizers are still encouraging submissions for the programme. Deadline for abstracts is March 1, 2017.
For further details on the Forum see our website.

This workshop will bring together senior and early career scientists to gain insight into the rapidly changing pan-Arctic land surface and boundary layer. The workshop will review current representation of Arctic ecosystem, carbon, water and energy balance
The OCEANS North America conference will be hosted in Alaska for the first time ever. On behalf of the Marine Technology Society and the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society, the OCEANS ’17 Anchorage Local Organizing Committee (LOC) is honored to invite your participation in this prestigious event.
