T-MOSAiC Workshop at "Arctic Change" Conference

An IASC-sponsored open workshop on the proposed program ‘Terrestrial Multidisciplinary distributed Observatories for the Study of Arctic Climate’ (T-MOSAiC) will take place on 11 December 2017 in Québec City, Canada, immediately prior to the ‘Arctic Change’ conference. More information here. 

Arctic Research Community Reception

ARCUS’ annual Arctic Research Community Reception will be held following the ARCUS Annual Meeting, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. (Central Time) on Wednesday, 13 December 2017. You are invited to join the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and the other Arctic researchers at AGU in conversation, networking, and socializing. More info here.

IASC-NAG Workshop on Arctic Glaciology & Proglacial Marine Ecosystems

The meeting will take place at the popular University Center Obergurgl, in Obergurgl, Austria, 22 - 24 January, 2018. 

The purpose of the meeting is:
•    to present and discuss new results on observations and modeling of the dynamics and mass budget of Arctic glaciers, including the Greenland ice sheet,
•    to provide a forum for glaciologists and marine biologists to present and discuss their work and to stimulate future collaborations, 
•    to plan and coordinate field work with the aim of using available infrastructure and logistics in the most efficient way.

The meeting is open to anyone interest in Arctic Glaciology. In particular, we encourage submissions that comply with one of two special themes: 

  1. Understanding atmosphere-glacier-ocean interactions and their implications for the pan-Arctic glacier mass budget
  2. The importance of Arctic glaciers for the Arctic marine ecosystem

Further information is available here. The registration deadline is November 10, 2017.


Workshop on Cryospheric Extremes, Helsinki, Finland, 25 - 27 April, 2018

The overarching aim of the workshop is to review our understanding of cryospheric extreme events in the past, present and future, and to identify research needs. Topics of interest include:

  • Observing cryospheric extremes (CE) and their precursors
  • Modelling requirements for CE
  • Producing and verifying forecasts of CE
  • CE and climate change
  • Relevance of CE for society/users
