Invitation to contribute to the new iLEAPS ACP & BG Joint Issue
posted on 21 Nov 2011
'iLEAPS (integrative Land-Ecosystem – Atmosphere Processes Study) is the land-atmosphere core project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP). The scientific goal of iLEAPS is to provide understanding how interacting physical, chemical and biological processes transport and transform energy and matter through the land-atmosphere interface.
Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP) and Biogeosciences (BG) have opened a Joint Special Issue on iLEAPS-related science. You are very welcome to contribute by sending manuscripts to this Joint Issue via either ACP or BG.'
Joint issue website at ACP: (External) http://www.atmos-chem-phys-discuss.net/special_issue151.html

Arctic Air Crash claims PCSP Director
posted on 22 Aug 2011
A chartered First Air 737 aircraft crashed in foggy conditions on approach to Resolute Airport (Canadian Arctic) on Saturday 20th August and only 3 of the 15 passengers and crew survived. Amongst the lives claimed was that of Dr Marty Bergmann, Director of the Polar Continental Shelf Project (PCSP) which supports research across the Canadian Arctic. This is a major loss for Arctic science as Marty was a remarkable individual who tirelessly promoted the Arctic Region and a key facilitator in the recent increasing internationalisation of Arctic science and logistics post-IPY. His vast experience, enthusiasm, approachability and leadership were recognised throughout the polar community. He had been working closely with the federal government as it undertakes the significant upgrading of its aging Arctic infrastructure and develops plans for a new international High Arctic research station. With the opening of new facilities PCSP is becoming a major player in facilitating what should be a new era of Canadian research in the Arctic and Marty has played a very important role in this.
He was one of the strongest advocates of UK-Canada polar cooperation and had been working closely with the NERC Arctic Office to facilitate a greater UK presence in the Arctic. At last years Arctic Research Programme workshop at Warwick, Marty was one of three international speakers encouraging UK researchers to work in the Canadian Arctic. He was a great personal friend to many of the UK community, a genuinely engaging and considerate personality and his loss will be felt keenly by all.

Climate Scenarios and Climate Simulation Workshop, Bremen, Germany
posted on 22 Aug 2011
A workshop and discussion on "Climate Scenarios and Climate Simulation" will take place on 5th and 6th of September in Bremen, Germany.
The aim of the workshop is to deliver to non-climate modelling experts a working knowledge of climate science issues that are important for their research, and how the impacts of climate change influence different sectors and activities. This is a perfect opportunity to hear from and interact with leaders in this field.
For a copy of the agenda or to register for this two-day workshop please contact Lilian Schubert (Lilian.Schubert 'at' awi.de) or the workshop organiser Ruediger Gerdes (Ruediger.Gerdes 'at' awi.de) by August 25 . A small fee of 40 euros will be charged to cover costs of the workshop.
