Permafrost Carbon Network
Where: Washington (US) | When: December 9, 2018
The Permafrost Carbon Network is part of the multi-million dollar Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH) project. The SEARCH project, headed by the University of Alaska Fairbanks as the lead institution and Northern Arizona University as one partner, is a system-scale, cross-disciplinary research program that seeks to connect the science of Arctic change to decision makers. The Permafrost Action Team, led by Ted Schuur will, in part, support activities developed by the Permafrost Carbon Network. The network has been successfully running since 2011 and includes more than 300 scientists from 88 research institutions located in 17 countries.

Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) Science Workshop
Where: Helsinki (Finland) | When: 14-16 January, 2019
Jointly organized by the Polar Prediction Project and its International Coordination Office (ICO), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), the workshop will bring together YOPP scientists to present and discuss the first results from the Arctic Special Observing Periods in winter and summer 2018, providing a vivid forum for exchange, networking, and interaction. Studies of atmospheric, ocean, sea ice, and land processes will be addressed to share feedback on the latest Arctic observations and modelling efforts on time scales from hours to seasonal.
More information on the workshop including session topics will be announced soon. Please direct any questions to the YOPP International Coordination Office. Click here for a PDF version of the first circular. More information on YOPP here.
Workshop on the Dynamics and Mass Budget of Arctic Glaciers & the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting
Where: Geilo (Norway) | When: January 20-24, 2019
The meeting will take place at Bardøla Hotel in Geilo, Norway, 20-24 January 2019, and host a cross-cutting activity of the Marine and Cryosphere working groups of IASC: “The importance of Arctic glaciers for the Arctic marine ecosystem”. The meeting is open to anyone interested in Arctic Glaciology and proglacial marine ecosystems. The cross-cutting activity aims at bringing together people from glaciology, marine ecology and oceanography - more details below.
You can register and submit your abstracts (maximum length 300 words) by filling this online-form (copy paste the following link into your web browser: https://goo.gl/forms/nhmcMqH14RbHXYkx1).
Registration deadline is October 31, 2018. Indicate whether you prefer oral or poster presentation and if your presentation is a contribution to the cross-cutting activity. If you have questions, e-mail Thorben Dunse.
Travel support is available for early-career scientists (up to 5 years past PhD), prioritizing those that wish to contribute to the cross-cutting activity. For further info on travel support, cross-cutting activity and workshop logistics visit the IASC-NAG website.
Effects and Extremes of High Latitude Dust
Where: Agricultural University of Iceland (AUI), Keldnahold, Reykjavík (Iceland) | When: February 13-14, 2019
High latitude dust (HLD), originating from cold high latitudes (≥ 50 °N and ≥ 40 °S) affects the cryosphere, oceans, air quality and safety, and in Europe both the High Arctic and the European mainland. Extreme HLD related events include unexpected, unusual or unseasonal events with exceptional magnitude, duration, severity, or extent, such as most severe wind erosion events, storms, dust storms, snow-dust storms, heat waves, cold weather, and extreme snowfalls, for example.
Jointly organized by the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), the Agricultural University of Iceland (AUI), and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), together with the IceDust Association, this workshop will bring together high latitude dust scientists to present and discuss all aspects of effects and extremes of HLD. The workshop aims to networking and interaction. More information on the workshop, including session topics will be announced soon.
Early career scientists (registered PhD students or PhD degree gained within 5 years) are encouraged to apply for the IASC travel support when submitting a presentation. Two ECS presentations will be selected for travel cost support of 750 eur (reimbursement based on receipts, further instruction for will be provided when the selection will be announced).
Confirmed Keynote Speaker: Prof. Joanna Bullard, UK, the first-author of "High‐latitude dust in the Earth system"
Register Here. We welcome your registration (by 11 Jan 2019), and your submissions for talks (by 30 Nov 2018) and posters (by 11 Jan 2019).
Organizing team: Outi Meinander (Finnish Meteorological Institute, contact: ), Pavla Dagsson-Waldhauserova (Agricultural University of Iceland, contact: ), together with IASC members of Halldór Björnsson and Guðrún Nína Petersen (Icelandic Meteorological Office), Kent Moore (University of Toronto), Joan Nymand Larsen (Stefansson Arctic Institute), and Lassi Heininen (University of Lapland), and in co-operation with the IceDust Association, Iceland

The 2019 GRC on Polar Marine Science
Where: - Castelvecchio Pascoli (Italy) I When: 16 - 17 March, 2019
The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science provides early career scientists with a unique opportunity to further enhance their Gordon Conference experience. The goal of this conference is to bring together graduate students and postdocs within all fields of polar marine science, including marine biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and technology to discuss interdisciplinary links and provide a basis for future collaborations. We especially encourage contributions that demonstrate interdisciplinary research approaches within and linking across the domains of atmosphere, sea ice, ocean, and benthos, including links to ice shelves, coasts, and human interactions.
