When: November 17-22, 2024

Where: Centre Paul Langevin, Aussois, Alps/France and Online (Zoom/GatherTown)

BEPSIIASPeCt, CATCHPACES, and QUiesCENT will hold a joint (hybrid) workshop bringing together scientists and stakeholders with an interest in atmosphere-ice-ocean research focussing on chemical, biogeochemical and physical processes in the Arctic and Antarctic and links to climate change. Cold regions which are seasonally or permanently covered by snow and ice, notably the Third Pole, are also of interest. 

Workshop purposes are to i) present cutting-edge interdisciplinary science, and ii) jointly identify ‘big picture’ science questions, research priorities and implementation pathways for research activities in field, laboratory and modelling before and during the 5th International Polar Year (IPY) 2032-2033.

Workshop outcomes will include a white paper to shape IPY32 funding calls, underpin grant applications, and influence the planning of polar research cruises, field campaigns and new long-term measurement capabilities.
