The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) announces the release of the Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic 2018. The revised Principles build upon the 1990 version.

Through an extensive comment and review process, the updated version includes five Principles that reflect the values held widely about how researchers should plan and conduct Arctic research.

The core Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic are:

  • Be Accountable 
  • Establish Effective Communication 
  • Respect Indigenous Knowledge and Cultures 
  • Build and Sustain Relationships
  • Pursue Responsible Environmental Stewardship

The Principles are available on the IARPC Collaborations Portal at:

z20589590VTak ma wygladac nowa polska stacja polarna Ministerstwo Nauki i Szkolnictwa Wyższego przeznaczyło blisko 88 mln zł na przebudowę infrastruktury Polskiej Stacji Antarktycznej im. H. Arctowskiego, w tym budowę nowego budynku głównego. Stacja umożliwia polskim naukowcom prowadzenie ambitnych programów badawczych i współpracę z najlepszymi placówkami naukowymi z całego świata, jest także polską wizytówką i nieoficjalną ambasadą RP w Antarktyce.Operatorem stacji jest Instytut Biochemii i Biofizyki PAN, któremu składamy serdeczne gratulacje.

prof Pekala teren Z wielkim smutkiem informujemy,
że 20 listopada 2018 r. odszedł do Wieczności

Prof. dr hab. Kazimierz Pękala
Honorowy Członek Komitetu Badań Polarnych PAN, wybitny uczony, geomorfolog, badacz wieloletniej zmarzliny i środowiska polarnego. Twórca Lubelskiej Szkoły Badań Polarnych i Stacji Badawczej UMCS w Calypsobyen na Spitsbergenie. Wychował kilka pokoleń badaczy polarnych zarażonych Jego entuzjazmem i pasją. Pełnił wiele funkcji. Był m.in. wieloletnim Prezesem Klubu Polarnego PTG, Reprezentantem Polski w International Permafrost Association.

Odszedł Uczony, ale przede wszystkim Dobry Człowiek, życzliwy wszystkim.
Będzie Cię nam brakowało Przyjacielu.
Cześć Jego Pamięci!

Pogrzeb odbędzie się w poniedziałek 26 listopada 2018 roku,
w Lublinie na cmentarzu przy ul. Lipowej.

The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is currently accepting abstract submissions for the EGU General Assembly 2019. This meeting will convene 7-12 April 2019 in Vienna, Austria.

Conveners of the following session invite abstract submissions:

SESSION AS2.3/CR3.10/OS1.14: Boundary Layers in High Latitudes
Conveners: Günther Heinemann, Jo Browse, Julia Schmale, Michael Tjernström, and Gillian Young

Changes in the Arctic and Antarctic climate systems are strongly related to processes in the boundary layer and their feedbacks with the free troposphere. An adequate understanding and quantification of these processes is necessary to improve predictions of future changes in the polar regions and their teleconnections with mid-latitude weather and climate, including meridional transport of heat, moisture, and air pollutants. Processes include atmosphere-ocean-ice (AOI) interactions, such as physical and chemical snow processes (e.g., snow photochemistry), exchange of chemical constituents, sources of aerosol, polynya formation processes, sea ice production and bottom water formation, and cloud formation, which represent key processes for the atmosphere, ocean, and the cryosphere. AOI interactions are also triggered by and have feedbacks with synoptic systems and mesoscale weather phenomena such as cold air outbreaks, katabatic winds, and polar lows. Associated processes also include the effect of warm air advection and clouds on the surface energy budget and related boundary layer exchanges. Of increasing interest is the study of extremes such as heat waves and storms, but also extreme meridional transport events that can disturb the physical and chemical state of the high latitudes and may have a large impact on ecosystem changes. In addition, Arctic boundary-layer processes play an important role for local Arctic air pollution and for the health and ecosystem impacts thereof. Understanding natural processes, including AOI interactions, is essential to the understanding of the background atmosphere to quantify the anthropogenic impacts. Shallow inversions, mostly during winter-time, lead to high air pollutant concentrations. Even though severe air pollution episodes are frequently observed in the Arctic, knowledge on urban emission sources and atmospheric chemical processing of pollution, especially under cold and dark conditions, are poorly understood.

This session is intended to provide an interdisciplinary forum to bring together researchers working in the area of boundary layer processes and high-latitude weather and climate (including snow physics, air/snow chemistry, and oceanography). Cryosphere and atmospheric chemistry processes are highly relevant to this session.

Session conveners invite contributions in the following areas:
•  Observations and research on the energy balance, physical and chemical exchange processes, and atmosphere-ocean-ice (AOI) interactions, including particle sources;
•  Results from high-elevation sites where similar processes occur over snow and ice;
•  Field programs, laboratory studies, and observational studies including remote sensing;
•  Model studies and reanalyses;
•  Advances in observing technology;
•  External controls on the boundary layer such as clouds, aerosols, and radiation;
•  Teleconnections between the polar regions and mid-latitudes resulting in effects related to atmosphere-ice-ocean interactions, as well as insights provided by monitoring of water vapor isotopes that shed light on air mass origins; and
•  High-latitude urban air quality studies.

ARCUSThe authors announce the release of the report, The Arctic Observing Summit: Background and Synthesis of Outcomes 2013-2016. This report summarizes the main recommendations from the first three Arctic Observing Summits (AOS), held in 2013, 2014, and 2016.

The AOS initiative originated from widespread agreement on the need to improve the coverage and coordination of pan-Arctic observing activities, and the communication and utilization of observational information to and by the widest possible audience for the purposes of basic research, problem solving, and decision-making. There is an ongoing demand to facilitate dialogue that will enable responding and adapting to Arctic environmental change and this includes the iterative development of recommendations to foster the coordination of observing activities and to improve existing Arctic observing systems.
