A Changing Arctic - Conference in Tromsø 2020

Date: June 2-5, 2020
Venue: Tromsø, Norway
FRAM – High North Research Centre for Climate and the Environment, Nature Climate Change, and Nature Reviews Earth and Environment are pleased to present A Changing Arctic, June 2-5, 2020 in Tromsø. Registrants are invited to submit an abstract for consideration for poster and oral presentation.
Robust evidence now exists for anthropogenically-forced shifts in the Earth’s environment. Observations in the Arctic reveal dramatic reductions in the extent and thickness of the sea ice, rising atmospheric temperatures, widespread permafrost degradation and ocean acidification. These changes bring with them implications for biology, ecosystem services and society in general.
Full understanding of current and projected Arctic environmental change is becoming an imperative in order to minimize and manage corresponding impacts. This conference aims to provide a forum for the three main themes of:
Land –  incorporating ecological impacts, permafrost, and landscape evolution
Ocean (coastal and open) – incorporating physical changes, ocean acidification, and ecological impacts
The Future – covering social aspects and including mitigation, adaptation, exploration, and management
