Conferences, Meetings, and Workshops (2005)

American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting

9-13 January, 2005
San Diego, CA, U.S.A.

The 85th AMS Annual Meeting will be held 9—13 January 2005 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. Jennifer Francis is the 2005 Annual Meeting Chairperson. It is being organized around the broad theme of "Building the Earth Information System" and the role that science can play in decision-making for society. With one-third or more of the economy being sensitive to weather and climate variability and changes, decisions involving resource management, economic development, hazard response, and policy all require the development of observing systems, science knowledge, and products that provide information across multiple spatial and temporal scales in the atmospheric and related sciences.

    2005 ARCUS Annual Meeting and Arctic Forum

    18-20 May, 2005
    Washington, D.C., USA

    ARCUS Annual Meetings:

    The ARCUS Annual Meeting is held each spring in Washington D.C. The meeting serves to gather member institution representatives, the Board of Directors, and the staff of ARCUS together with other members of the arctic research community and key agency personnel and policy makers.

    To review information from past meetings or to preview this year's ARCUS Annual Meeting, go to the following website: http://www.arcus.org/annual_meetings/index.html

    Arctic Forum:

    In order to provide a venue for arctic researchers in all disciplines to interact with colleagues and agency representatives, ARCUS hosts the Arctic Forum each year in conjunction with the ARCUS Annual Meeting. The Arctic Forum provides access for individual researchers to information on research, education, and facilities outside of their fields, which has led to many successful collaborations. Since its inception in October 1994, the Arctic Forum remains one of only a few interdisciplinary arctic science meetings.

    The Bering Strait, Rapid Climate Change, and Land Bridge Paleoecology

    20-22 June, 2005
    Fairbanks, Alaska, U.S.A.

    JOI/USSSP is sponsoring an interdisciplinary workshop to discuss potential scientific ocean drilling in the Bering Sea Shelf basins. Reconstruction of the sea level history of the Bering Strait, including the exact timing of the opening and closing of the land bridge and the rates of associated sea level changes, is essential to understanding its role as a trigger, pacemaker, or benign observer of northern hemisphere climate changes. Strategic cores from the region will also help answer outstanding questions regarding Bering Land Bridge paleoecology and its impact on migration of plants and animals between Asia and North America. The purpose of the workshop is to formulate the key scientific questions, identify relevant drilling sites, discuss drilling platform options, and to begin coordinating subsequent geophysical surveys, proposals, and multi-proxy analyses.

    Applications Contact Sarah Fowell (ffsjf@uaf.edu) by 22 April 2005 with the following information: name, institution, contact information, research specialty, and a brief statement of interest relevant to the purpose of the workshop. Limited JOI/USSSP travel support is available to U.S. participants

    Sponsored By: Joint Oceanographic Institutions (JOI) U.S. Science Support Program (USSSP)
