Permafrost Young Researchers Workshop to be held in June

(Logos: International Arctic Science Committee, Climate and Cryosphere, Bolion Center for Climate Research, Stockholm University, International Permafrost Association)  (Logos: International Arctic Science Committee, Climate and Cryosphere, Bolion Center for Climate Research, Stockholm University, International Permafrost Association) The Permafrost Young Researcher Workshop (PYRW) to be held on June 18th 2014 in Évora, Potugal, just prior to the European Conference on Permafrost (EUCOP).
 
This workshop will be organized in a joint effort of PYRN (Permafrost Young Researchers Network), APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists ) and the young researcher representatives of the two projects PAGE21 (Changing Permafrost in the Arctic and its Global Effects in the 21st Century) and ADAPT (Arctic Development and Adaptation to Permafrost in Transition).
 
The workshop is an official ICARP III activity and it aims at building interdisciplinary knowledge on how the Arctic and Antarctic permafrost regions play a key role in the Earth System and to give each participant a more overarching view on the regions beyond disciplinary research questions. To achieve this, the participants will share knowledge with each other in thematic break-out sessions and elaborate the future avenues of permafrost research together, with mentors playing a key role in permafrost research either in large-scale international projects or science policy.
 
PYRN will organize this workshop together with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) who also connects numerous young researchers working in polar and alpine permafrost regions. This workshop builds on the scientific momentum with two very large projects in Europe (PAGE21) and Canada (ADAPT) dealing with permafrost exclusively. Management capabilities from PYRN and APECS along with the targeted scientific input from PAGE21 and ADAPT will allow us maintaining an active, dynamic and growing early career scientific network on permafrost that will last into the future and reach progress by increased collaborations and interdisciplinary studies.
