During the AMAP Conference, SEARCH Sea Ice Action Team Staff Member Matthew Druckenmiller will be scheduling "informational interviews" with decision-maker audiences, such as within Executive agencies, Congressional offices, NGOs, and local and state level institutions, to gather feedback on the SIAT's communication approaches and to systematically outline the preferences, potential, and obstacles for "knowledge to action".
Other SEARCH Science Steering Committee members will also be attending and participating in this event.
International Workshop to Reconcile Northern Permafrost Region Methane Budgets
Tue, 03/07/2017 to Thu, 03/09/2017
Hyatt at Olive 8: 1635 8th Ave., Seattle, Washington
Workshop participation is by invitation only.
The International Workshop to Reconcile Northern Permafrost Region Methane Budgets will take place 7-9 March 2017 in Seattle, WA. The workshop will bring together three research groups focused on methane from terrestrial sources (primarily wetlands and lakes), coastal sources, and inferences of fluxes based on atmospheric methane concentrations.
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.
