High Arctic Polynyas in a changing climate: international workshop (22 – 23.11.2021, Copenhagen, Denmark)
We have extended the abstract deadline for the 2-day international hybrid workshop ‘High Arctic polynyas in a changing climate’, which will be held online and in Copenhagen, Denmark, from the 22nd – 23rd of November 2021.
Polynyas provide biological oases in the polar regions and their formation is influenced by the complex interplay between atmospheric and oceanographic forcing, as well as geographical setting. Reconstructions and observations demonstrate these phenomena were and are vulnerable to the impacts of changing climate in the Arctic; the question remains as to their viability (and how to predict this) in the future.
The aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to bring together researchers from the paleo-community (working with e.g., marine and lacustrine proxies) and the modelling community to consolidate existing knowledge through a combination of short talks and poster presentations. Open format panel discussions will aim to identify emerging perspectives and challenges in arctic polynya research as well as areas for synthesis, collaboration, and opportunities for data-model assimilation.
Please indicate your interest in attending via email to Rebecca Jackson (rjac[at]geus.dk) indicting 1) whether you will be attending in person/online, 2) preference of poster/short talk and 3) a brief abstract (350 words max.). The deadline for abstracts is 09.11.2021, after which the workshop schedule and details will be announced. Participation in the workshop is free of charge and there is limited financial support for travel for early career researchers from abroad wishing to attend in person.
