Long-term research programs steadily gained in importance over the last decades, monitoring worldwide issues such as climate change, land use changes, deposition and accumulation of pollutants, acceleration of socio-economic evolution, and analyzing their influences on ecosystems. Ecological and socio-ecological questions in mountain areas can hardly be answered by short funding cycles such as 3-years-projects. Thus, long-term research involving different disciplines and scales is a promising way for gaining comprehensive knowledge to develop amendatory strategies.
The workshop will mainly focus on the main SCAR Horizon Scan questions and the future hot scientific topics concerning the permafrost environment in Antarctica. For the past 20 years, research has mainly focused on the thermal state of permafrost and the active layer, periglacial processes and landforms and cryosoils. However, recently the community is becoming multidisciplinary, with research more focused on terrestrial ecosystem dynamics under a changing climate. Simultaneously, the links between ecosystem and permafrost scientists became stronger and more collaborative.
Organizers announce a call for registration for the Workshop on Improved Satellite Retrievals of Sea-ice Concentration and Sea-ice Thickness for Climate Applications. Experts on remote sensing and/or large-scale modeling are invited to discuss and outline the most promising opportunities and best practices in the use of existing and future satellite sensors for the remote sensing of sea-ice concentration and thickness, and the use of such data in large-scale modeling applications.
The #GreatAntarcticClimateHack will be held at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography Forum, La Jolla, California. Our first-ever Climate Hack will focus on bringing Antarctic and Southern Ocean observations to bear on evaluating the latest generation of climate and earth system models (with an emphasis on CMIP), producing new climate model metrics for the 21st century.
The annual Arctic Circle Assembly is the largest annual international gathering on the Arctic, attended by more than 2000 participants from 50 countries. It is attended by heads of states and governments, ministers, members of parliaments, officials, experts, scientists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, indigenous representatives, environmentalists, students, activists and others from the growing international community of partners and participants interested in the future of the Arctic.
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.
BIT's 6th Annual World Congress of Ocean-2017 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on ocean economy and policy, maritime law, integrated marine management and environment, integrated coastal zone management and oceanography. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, professionals and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, concerns and solutions adopted in ocean fields.
Svalbard Science Forum (SSF) and The Research Council of Norway in collaboration with The Norwegian Polar Institute and The Ny-Ålesund Science Managers Committee (NySMAC) invite you to inspire and be inspired.
We are offering a meeting place that brings researchers and other stakeholders together, with the goal to stimulate and inspire in a way that will advance and provide further impact from research on Svalbard.
The 9th International Conference on Geomorphology of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) will take place in New Delhi at Vigyan Bhawan. 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.
Field trips will be arranged in various parts of India and neighboring countries, before, during, and after the Conference.
The goal of the Graduate Climate Conference (GCC) is to provide a discussion forum for graduate students undertaking research on climate and climate change in an array of disciplines throughout the physical sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, and humanities. The format is designed to encourage new climate researchers to become acquainted with the details of diverse areas of study and to place their own work in the broader context of the climate research community.
