T-MOSAiC Remote Sensing AG chairs Annett Bartsch and Gonçalo Vieira will chair a session at the European Polar Science Week. The session entitled "Arctic Land-Surface Characterisation - Needs, Challenges and Gaps/T-MOSAIC" will have Isla Myers-Smith, Guido Grosse, Matthias Siewert and Thomas Ingeman-Nielsen as keynote speakers. More information is available in the meeting website.
The Environmental Pollution Journal (IF: 6.792) formally accepted the publication of the special issue on Arctic Terrestrial Pollution (including Coastal Areas). This special issue will be edit by João Canário (University of Lisbon, Portugal), Katrin Vorkamp (Aarhus University, Denmark), Mark Mallory (University of Acadia, Canada) and Scott Zolkos (Woods Hole Research Center, USA). Manuscript Submission will start on December 1st, 2020 and will be open until June, 2021.
The extended deadline for the RATIC/T-MOSAiC ssession: IHE20 - Northern Roads and Railways: Social and Environmental Effects of Transport Infrastructure on Arctic roads and railways, closes on Monday 14 September (midnight). Please to consult the website for more information.
A scientific session of the Trace Gas Fluxes T-MOSAiC AG will be organised at the AGU 2020 Meeting. The session entitled "Arctic trace gas and carbon biogeochemistry: Connecting landscapes and qualifying fluxes using novel approaches" is now open for abstract submission. More information here.
Professor Gonçalo Vieira (IGOT - University of Lisbon), T-MOSAiC EXCOM and Remote Sensing AG Chair is one of the new Vice-Presidents of the International Permafrost Association (IPA). More information can be accessed here. Professor Vieira is a physical geographer from the Centre for Geographic Studies and is research is on the changing Polar and mountain regions using physical geography skills and high resolution remote sensing.
T-MOSAiC is pleased to inform that will edit a special journal issue on Arctic Terrestrial Pollution, including Coastal Areas. This special issue is pre-accepted to be published in the Elsevier “Environmental Pollution” (IF= 5.714) and the chief guest-editors will be João Canário from the University of Lisbon and Maribeth Murray from the University of Calgary. This issue will cover all areas of Arctic terrestrial pollution and pollutants, from the biogeochemical cycles to their effects on wildlife and human health. Expression of interest is now open until July 15, and interested authors should send an email to the T-MOSAiC secretariat with the tentative title and name, affiliation, and email of the leading author.
T-MOSAiC Early Career Researchers Daniel Pinheiro, Diogo Folhas, Martin Jusek, Jonathan Griffith, and Pedro Freitas will present T-MOSAiC oral related communications in the next APECS Online Conference on May 20th. More information about titles and presentation times can be checked here.
In 2021, the ASSW will take place in Lisbon under the theme: “The Arctic: Regional changes, Global impacts”. The event will bring together scientists, Indigenous Peoples, Arctic community members, and Arctic science stakeholders to present and discuss the most recent advances on Arctic knowledge across disciplines, from the natural sciences to the humanities. The ASSw2021 will also be an opportunity to foster research synergies between both Polar Regions, with sessions that target both Poles welcomed. The Arctic community is invited to chair and present session proposals of relevant topics in all science fields, both specific and cross-cutting, framed in the overall conference theme.
