Registration to IASC-2019 Workshop on Effects and Extremes of High Latitude Dust, 13-14 Feb 2019, Iceland


We invite you to participate in the IASC Workshop on Effects and Extremes of High Latitude Dust,  13-14 Feb  2019, Reykjavik, Iceland, in co-operation with the IceDust Association.

Confirmed Key note speaker: prof. Joanna Bullard, UK, the first-author of "High‐latitude dust in the Earth system", https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2016RG000518

Venue: Agricultural University of Iceland (AUI), Keldnaholt, Reykjavik, Iceland

*************************************************************************************************************************************************
High latitude dust (HLD), originating from cold high latitudes (≥ 50 °N and ≥ 40 °S) affects the cryosphere, oceans, air quality and safety, and in Europe both the High Arctic and the European mainland. Extreme HLD events include events with exceptional magnitude, duration, severity, or extent, such as most severe wind erosion events, storms, dust storms, snow-dust storms, heat waves, cold weather, and extreme snowfalls.

Updates to the agenda can be followed in the internet at the following addresses: IASC (https://iasc.info/upcoming-iasc-events), FMI (https://twitter.com/FMI_Snow), and IceDust (https://icedustblog.wordpress.com/).

We welcome your registration (by 11 Jan 2019), and your submissions for talks (by 30 Nov 2018) via the registration. Poster presentations are welcome (by 11 Jan 2019) via the registration link. The preliminary program will appear as soon as possible after 30 Nov 2018. Early career scientists (registered PhD students or PhD degree gained within 5 years) are encouraged to apply for the IASC travel support when submitting a presentation.
 
We look forward to welcoming you!

Topics of interest of this workshop include all aspects of effects and extremes of HLD, such as:

• Observing effects and extremes of HLD
• Sources of HLD
• Modelling of HLD
• Satellite detection of HLD
• Forecasting HLD
• HLD and climate change
• Relevance of HLD for society/users
 
The overarching aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to review our understanding of effects and extremes of high latitude dust in the past, present and future, and to identify research needs.

3. Title and short abstract of the presentation

4. Will participate to joint dinner on the evening 13 Feb (mainly selfpaid, partly sponsored, we will make a preliminary booking based on your registrations, and the participants can confirm their participation at the workshop while in Iceland with more detailed information avilable on the menu and prices)
