-The Permafrost Young Researchers Workshop 2014 was sponsored by CliC

TheCryosphereA new article focusing on ‘Future avenues for permafrost science from the perspective of early career researchers‘ was published in The Cryosphere.

This manuscript is a contribution to the 3rd International Conference on Arctic Research Planning 2015 (ICARP III), looking at the future of permafrost research. The top five research questions for the next decade of permafrost science from the perspective of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) were summarized in this article which highlights the pathways and structural preconditions to address these research priorities. This manuscript is an outcome of a community consultation conducted for and by ECRs on a global level.

While the consultation was being conducted and during the preparatory phase of the manuscript, the Permafrost Young Researchers Workshop 2014 was organized on June 18, in conjunction with the Fourth European Conference on Permafrost 2014, in Evora, Portugal. This CliC sponsored workshop included approximately 100 early career permafrost scientists and engineers and aimed to build interdisciplinary knowledge on how the Arctic and Antarctic permafrost regions play a key role in the Earth System. The report of the workshop is available here.
