thumbnailnews25Our fourth newsletter of 2015 includes three great science features: one focuses on a historical expedition in the Arctic and the two others on major publications including one emanating from a CliC-funded workshop, a number of summaries from various CliC events held over the Summer, a few updates from our Community, an announcement for a new Sea-Ice Biogeochemistry Forum, and other things made possible with support from the Climate and Cryosphere Project. As always, we also include a list of our upcoming workshops and meetings, news from the cryosphere community and from our sponsor WCRP and sister projects.  In this issue, we also say goodbye to the former CliC International Project Office (IPO) Director, Dr. Jenny Baeseman, who was leading the IPO since 2012 and who left the office to pursue new ventures. Her position being currently vacant, we also announce that we are looking for a new CliC Director.
