The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.
Join us in this workshop to explore the possible links between Arctic change and mid-latitude weather and climate that has spurred a rush of new observational and modeling studies.
The Science Symposium will be on 4-7 April 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic, and will address the three sub-themes: (a) Changes in the Arctic, (b) Global Implications of Arctic Changes and (c) Impacts of Global Change on the Arctic.
To facilitate the participation of early career scientists and indigenous peoples, the organizers recommend that each session proposal includes one early career scientist co-convener and/or one indigenous co-convener, if applicable. Session proposals should also consider the overall geographic and gender balance of the proposed co-conveners.
The North Pacific Research Board announces the 2017 Request for Proposals (RFP). The 2017 RFP has an anticipated funding amount of $4.55 million. This RFP is similar in form and content to past NPRB RFPs, with research categories structured around the 2005 NPRB Science Plan.
Applicants are encouraged to consult the 2017 RFP for further details on research priorities for this year.
With approximately 24,000 attendees in 2015, AGU’s Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. 2016 will mark Fall Meeting’s 49th year as the premiere place to present your research; hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field; and network with colleagues that can enhance your career.
Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC): The Next 5 Years of Federally-funded Arctic Research
Moscone West, Room 2003, San Francisco, California, 12:30 p.m. PST
Conveners will provide an overview of the science and policy drivers, scope, and research goals of the Arctic Research Plan FY2017-2021. The Research Plan describes Arctic research priorities of the Federal Government that are expected to benefit from interagency collaboration during the period FY2017-2021. The town hall will provide an opportunity for the research community to learn about the Research Plan and how they can engage in its implementation.
