Past Antarctic Ice Sheet Dynamics (PAIS) Conference 2017
September 10-15th 2017 - Trieste - Italy


scarThe PAIS Geoscience SCAR Research Programme is hosting a programmatic conference on
September 10-15 th 2017 in Trieste (Italy).

The aim of the conference is to present recent results that address still open questions in understanding the sensitivity of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and its contribution to past and future sea level and climate change ( Kennicutt M.C. Chown S. et al., Nature, 2014).

An important development in understanding and predicting Antarctic ice-sheet behaviour has been the validation and testing of ice sheet models on past climates with boundary conditions that are relevant to future projections.

While the focus of the conference will be on the latest developments in paleo-ice sheet and climate reconstructions using data and models, we also invite researchers and students from geodynamical, climatological, glaciological, oceanographic, ecosystem and ice cores communities, since their work is crucial for understanding the processes and dynamics of the integrated system.

All presentations will be in plenary oral and poster sessions, and each day will end with a plenary discussion to enable the maximum interaction of different groups and disciplines.

Workshops/satellite business meetings can be organized upon request, on Wednesday Sept. 13 th (afternoon), and/or on the week-end before or after the conference.

logoSCAR is the international organization tasked with coordinating research in Antarctica and as part of its 60yr Anniversary celebration, has decided to open its archives for a comprehensive study. This is SCAR’s veritable legacy of sixty years of research coordination at the bottom of the world.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and bright PhD Student to examine the archival documents in order to better understand SCAR’s role in the shaping of Antarctic science and geopolitics as well as to use the historical evidence to cast new light on Antarctica’s present and future.

The application deadline has been extended to 30 April 2017. Interviews are expected to take place in May, with the successful candidate beginning in the post in October.

The researcher will be employed at the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM), University of Manchester, where she/he will receive further training on research methods as well as working space. The PhD student will travel regularly to Cambridge to visit the SCAR archive. SCAR will contribute the office space and incidentals needed by the student to complete the project, as well as some travel costs. SCAR will also provide in-kind assistance to the student while in Cambridge. The investigator may also have the opportunity to attend one of the Antarctic Treaty Meetings to familiarize with the system of scientific governance existing in Antarctica.
