The Synoptic Arctic Survey Informational Meeting

Event date/time: Thursday, 13 December 2018, 12:30-1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
Event location: Cambria Hotel Washington D.C. Convention Center hotel, Duke Ellington Room 1

The Synoptic Arctic Survey (SAS) will be hosting an informational meeting during the American Geophysical Union (AGU) 2018 Fall Meeting. This open meeting will convene 12:30-1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thursday, 13 December 2018 at the Cambria Hotel Washington D.C. Convention Center(899 O Street NW, Washington, DC, 20001), Duke Ellington Room 1, in Washington D.C. The SAS is a developing international program envisioned to mount a coordinated, multi-nation, oceanographic field-based effort on a Pan Arctic Scale quasi-synoptically over a single season to achieve the baseline understanding of the fundamental structure and function of the linked carbon-ecosystem-physical systems that will permit detection of ongoing and future changes. Development of the program has been ongoing since 2015. This meeting will include an informal presentation and a questions and answers session on the status of the effort. Meeting organizers include SAS Science Steering Committee Chair, √ėyvind Paasche, and SAS Science Steering Committee Members, Carin Ashjian and Jackie Grebmeier.

Alaskan Layered Pollution and Chemical Analysis (ALPACA) Project Meeting

Event date/time: Wednesday, 12 December, 12:30-1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
Event location: Cambria Hotel Washington D.C. Convention Center, Duke Ellington Room 1

The Alaskan Layered Pollution and Chemical Analysis (ALPACA) project will be hosting an open meeting during the American Geophysical Union (AGU) 2018 Fall Meeting.

The whitepaper describes open scientific questions regarding pollution processes relevant to cold and dark conditions and the design of a field project to close some of these knowledge gaps. This document is available on the ALPACA website. Organizers look forward to working with community members to make progress in understanding wintertime pollution in the North.

The Arctic Research Community Reception will take place 7:00-8:30 p.m., directly following the Annual Meeting. These events will take place in Washington D.C. at the Cambria Hotel (899 O St NW, Rooms: Duke Ellington 1 and 2). The 2018 Annual Meeting agenda will focus on ARCUS member priorities for Arctic research, education, and outreach. This meeting is open to anyone interested in Arctic research. An ARCUS member affiliation is not required to attend. Registration for the AGU Fall Meeting is also not a requirement. For members unable to attend the Annual Meeting in person, there will also be a simultaneous web-conference to enable remote viewing of the event and participation in group break-out discussions. Please register as a "webinar only" attendee to receive remote participation details. Following the meeting, all participants are also invited to join us for the Arctic Research Community Reception, taking place in the same location from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. This year's reception has been made possible through the generous support of the National Science Foundation, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), and both the international and U.S. Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS). There is no cost to participate in either the Annual Meeting or Arctic Research Community Reception. However, advance registration is encouraged for both events.
