Environmental geometry: how time and space shape processes in the Polar Regions, the 2023 Polar Marine Science (GRS) Gordon Research Seminar

548 GRS2023 Gwenaëlle GremionThe GRS on Polar Marine Science is a meeting specifically designed for early career scientists. The aim of GRS is to bring together early-career researchers in all fields of polar marine science (marine biology, chemistry, physics, geology and technology) to discuss interdisciplinary links and provide a basis for future collaborations. GRS will therefore provide a forum for graduate students and postdocs to present and discuss new data, cutting-edge ideas and multidisciplinary approaches with experts in different fields of polar sciences.

2nd MOSAiC Science Conference 13-17 February, 2023 in Boulder, Colorado, USA

The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) was an international, interdisciplinary Arctic scientific expedition that drifted across the central Arctic from autumn 2019 to autumn 2020. The 2nd International MOSAiC Science Conference will be held 13-17 February 2023 at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado, USA. Conference objectives are to foster cross-cutting scientific analysis, address issues of spatiotemporal scaling of information, and promote advancement of modeling and predictive capabilities.

7th EGU Snow Science Winter School 2023

29 January-4 February 2023, Davos, Switzerland

Special topic "Snow measurements in the field and laboratory"


Covering up to 49% of the total land surface in midwinter in the northern hemisphere, snow is a crucial component of the cryosphere. Snow plays a key role in our environment, with social and economical implications such as the climate change, natural hazard, tourisms, etc. How does snow behave and interact with its surrounding largely depends on its microstructure, which varies widely from light dendritic snowflakes to small rounded grains or dense melt crusts. Measuring and characterizing snow is essential.

Young Arctic Voices Session at the Democracy Festival

How to bring local, traditional and Indigenous Knowledge together with the 'western' approach to science to improve research and environmental observations across cultures? In this session Indigenous youth from the Arctic will discuss and raise awareness for their ideas and visions on how to combine these different knowledge systems based on their life experiences.

Together, among European and Arctic youth, we will exchange different perspectives and discuss how to make young people’s voices heard in the Arctic. Be prepared for a very interactive and participatory session and a productive dialogue with us.We are looking forward to meeting you all!
