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 Science Symposium 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.
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.
SEARCH Permafrost Action Team Leads (Christina Schädel and Ted Schuur) will convene a session (Climate change and the carbon balance in permafrost) at the 2nd Asian Conference on Permafrost in Sapporo, Japan.
