It includes three science features: one on recent changes to New Zealand glaciers, another looks at phytoplankton blooms observed under thick snow and ice in the Arctic; and the third focuses on biogeochemistry in the Antarctic pack ice. This issue also contains a number of summaries from various CliC events held during the first half of 2017; some news from the CliC Leadership, the Report from the last Scientific Steering Group meeting; a list of our upcoming workshops and meetings; and other events made possible with support from the WCRP Climate and Cryosphere Project.
We would also like to take this opportunity to welcome the new CliC Co-chair, Dr. James Renwick, from the Victoria University of Wellington. Dr. Renwick was appointed on January 1, 2017, for a 3-year period. Welcome James!
