Organizers of the 2021 Regional Conference on Permafrost (RCOP) invite session proposals that address science and/or engineering topics with a focus on permafrost.
For the first time the Regional Conference on Permafrost will be combined with the bi-annual International Conference on Cold Regions Engineering. The conference will bring together international participants who will have the opportunity to organize side-project meetings and enjoy field trips to the nearby Rocky Mountains.
This symposium will bring together scientists, stakeholders and policy makers for a discussion on the latest results from studies of the entire cryosphere, which plays an important role in the hydrological cycle and the Earth System and is one of the most useful indicators of climate change. The symposium will allow ample time for panel discussions on scientific results, new technologies, research gaps and future perspectives in the light of the Paris Agreement, which calls for limiting global warming to 1.5–2°C.
