The following is a list of upcoming events that may be of interest to the ice coring and glaciological community. You can also view a listing of past events.
The AGU 2018 Fall Meeting will mark another dynamic year of discovery in Earth and space science, serve as the advent of AGU’s Centennial year, and provide a special opportunity to share our science with world leaders in Washington, D.C. As the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, the Fall Meeting places you in the center of a global community of scientists drawn from myriad fields of study whose work protects the health and welfare of people worldwide, spurs innovation, and informs decisions that are critical to the sustainability of the Earth.
The Workshop on the Dynamics and Mass Budget of Arctic Glaciers & the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting will 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 purpose of the meeting is:
Participation is open to everyone interested in Arctic glaciology and proglacial marine ecosystems. The cross-cutting activity aims at bringing together people from glaciology, marine ecology and oceanography.
The 2019 Alpine Glaciology Meeting (AGM) will be hosted in Innsbruck, Austria. The meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers, permafrost and glacial geomorphology in all regions of the world. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young researchers are especially encouraged to present their work in progress!
There is no registration fee to the meeting, but we recommend to book your accommodation in advance, since Innsbruck is a beloved tourist destination this time of year.
The meeting will be held in the Aula of the main building of the University of Innsbruck, in close vicinity of the town center.
The Arctic Workshop is an annual meeting dedicated to all aspects of high-latitude Earth science and environmental research. Running since 1970, the workshop is an informal meeting space for scientists at all career stages working in fields encompassing high- latitude climate, hydrology, glaciology, oceanography, ecology, archaeology, solid Earth processes and hazards in past, present and future environments.
We welcome research contributions on any of these themes, and we particularly encourage student and early career scientist participation (reduced student fees).
We look forward to seeing you in Stockholm!
The EGU General Assembly 2019 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGU is looking forward to cordially welcoming you in Vienna.
The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) was initiated by IASC in 1999 to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between the various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research and to economize on travel and time. Over the years the summit evolved into the most important annual gathering of the Arctic research organizations. The summit is organized by an International Coordination Group and any organization engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research may participate.
More information will be available soon.
The abstract submission for the forthcoming 27th IUGG General Assembly to be held July 8-18, 2019, at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal (Québec, Canada) is now open.
We are encouraging submissions to the following IACS session:
C06 "New Frontiers in Paleoclimate Reconstructions and Proxy Interpretations from Ice Cores".
This symposium welcomes contributions of state-of-the-art ice core science from both polar regions as well as mid and low latitude glaciers. We invite contributions on, but not limited to, the following topics:
Contributions on different temporal scales spanning the past decades to glacial-interglacial cycles are encouraged.
Convener: Barbara Stenni (Italy)
Co-Conveners: Anais Orsi (France), Nancy A. N. Bertler (New Zealand), T.J. Fudge (USA
The abstract submission closes on 18 February 2019.
Abstract submission, online registration and accommodation reservation are all now open at: http://iugg2019montreal.com/abstract-submission.html
More information about the event is available at: http://iugg2019montreal.com/index.html
The full list of cryospheric symposia is here http://iugg2019montreal.com/c.html
Travel Grants: IACS and IUGG will together support a large number of travel grants to enable students, early career scientists, female scientists and attendees from less-affluent countries to come to Montreal. More information is available here http://iugg2019montreal.com/travel-grant.html
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 13th International Conference on Paleoceanography in Sydney, Australia, 2 – 6 September 2019: the first ICP held under the Southern Cross.
The conference will be hosted at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). UNSW is located close to one of the most iconic beaches in Australia and a short bus ride away from Sydney's central business district.
Following the traditional ICP format, the conference will be organised around invited plenary oral presentations as well as large and vibrant poster sessions. Networking will be at the centre of the ICP, with numerous social events including the Paleomusicology concert and conference dinner.
The lively city of Sydney has a rich cultural heritage and offers adventure and entertainment for all ages and tastes. Breathtaking coastal national parks, the Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley, known for Australia’s finest wines, are only a daytrip away.
A range of existing pre- and post- Conference field trips will be organised in New South Wales, New Zealand and potentially the Great Barrier Reef. For those with time for exploring, Sydney is the gateway to iconic travel locations including the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, and Kakadu National Park.
The Geological Society of America (GSA) will hold its 130th Annual Meeting from 22-25 September 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
GSA is a global professional society with a growing membership of more than 26,000 individuals in 115 countries. GSA provides access to elements that are essential to the professional growth of earth scientists at all levels of expertise and from all sectors: academic, government, business, and industry. The Society unites thousands of earth scientists from every corner of the globe in a common purpose to study the mysteries of our planet (and beyond) and share scientific findings.
Ice drills are crucial to access ice for climate research and other studies of the water and basal conditions under glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets. The ice related research especially related to understand the past and present climate will improve our ability to predict the impacts under future climate changes. New techniques are rapidly evolving within ice drills and include rapid access drills, replicate drilling and thermal and hot water drilling. This symposium presents a timely opportunity to show recent advances in our knowledge and technological capabilities in ice drilling technology. In addition, the symposium will include the ice drill related themes like ice core handling, borehole logging and ice camp logistics.
