First announcement of IASC Workshop on Effects and Extremes of High Latitude Dust
Where: Reykjavik, Iceland,
When: 13-14 Feb 2019
Confirmed Key note speaker: prof. Joanna Bullard, UK, the first-author of "High‐latitude dust in the Earth system", https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2016RG000518
Venue: Agricultural University of Iceland (AUI), Keldnaholt, Reykjavik, Iceland
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).
