More FrostBytes from the DUE Permafrost Workshop

As one of the requirements for early career researchers receiving travel funds to attend CliC sponsored events, they share their research by developing a FrostByte, a short video on the latest and greatest cryosphere research they are working on. We are happy to present two new FrostBytes from the upcoming DUE Permafrost workshop:

Update from the Permafrost Carbon Network

- a CliC endorsed and supported effort

Recent publications from the Research Carbon Network (RCN):

ICDC Sea Ice data products following the ASPeCt protocol available

- The Antarctic Sea Ice Processes and Climate Group (ASPeCt) is a CliC working group

The Integrated Climate Data Centre (ICDC) at the University of Hamburg, Germany has released new snow depth on sea ice data following the SCAR/CliC Antarctic Sea Ice Processes and Climate (ASPeCt) protocol. See the snow depth data from Antarctic ship observations at: http://icdc.zmaw.de/snowdepth_seaice_shipobs_ant.html?&L=1.

In addition, ICDC has also created a new web portal with a number of unique data sets (see below) for use by anyone working on routines, approaches, models, services, operations, and projects that deal with the marine cryosphere. For the sea ice and snow pages go to: http://icdc.zmaw.de/cryosphere.html?&L=1

Update on WCRP Cryosphere Grand Challenge

The WCRP Cryosphere in a Changing Climate Grand Challenge Workshop report is online along with the video and pdf presentations form the meeting at: http://www.climate-cryosphere.org/albums/wcrp-grand-callenge-2013

CliC featured in the APECS Director's report

The APECS Newsletter December 2013 is now available at: http://tinyurl.com/APECS-January. Read the Directors Report featuring CliC at: http://www.apecs.is/news-feeds/all-things-norway/6432-happy-new-year

Highlights from the January issue include:

Call for nominations for SOOS Steering Committee

- SOOS is a CliC endorsed project

Nominations are open for new members to join the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) Scientific Steering Committee (SSC). (see: www.soos.aq/index.php/about-us/ssc/currentsscmembers for information on current SSC members).

CliC would like to help ensure broad national coverage on the SSC. Nominations of experts from all disciplines will be considered, however there is particular interest in nominations from experts in:
• Ocean/ice-sheet dynamics
• Technologists (e.g., hardware, cyber infrastructure)
• Data assimilation

Ideally, candidates would be present at the upcoming SSC meeting in Norway in June 2014. Nominees should be highly regarded for their scientific excellence, have close connections to the community that they represent, and should be willing to actively participate in the implementation of SOOS.

Nominations should include a cover letter stating the nominee’s motivation to be involved, CV highlighting relevant experience (6 pages maximum), and letter of support from the nominator. Please send nominations (including self-nominations) to Louise Newman <> by the 17 February 2014. Read more at http://www.soos.aq/index.php/about-us/ssc/nominations
