We are pleased to inform you the Special
Issue “Sino-Finnish Cooperation on Cryosphere and Climatology in Polar and
Sub-polar Regions” in the journal of Advances in Polar Science (APS) to be
published as a general issue of APS (Volume 32, Issue 4) in December of 2021. You
can see the details: http://www.aps-polar.org/news/details/M201216000002AiDl).
The year 2020 marked the 70th anniversary
of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Finland. Long-term
sustainable and pragmatic scientific and technological cooperation on the
cryosphere and climatology in polar and sub-polar regions began in the 1980s. After
the year 2000, cooperation was expanded to the processes of lake ice, glaciers
and ice sheets, snow cover, atmosphere, and climatology in the polar regions.
Jointly, China and Finland have completed the design of the research vessel
"Xuelong 2", which is one
of the most advanced polar research vessels in the world supporting the Chinese
National Antarctic and Arctic Research Expeditions (CHINARE).
In order to celebrate the great
achievements by Chinese and Finnish scientist in the field of
cryosphere and climatology in high latitudes, Advance in Polar Science (APS) is
pleased to open a special issue entitled as "Sino-Finnish cooperation on
cryosphere and climatology in polar and sub-polar regions".
The topics of the Special Issue include,
but are not limited to:
•Review of Sino- Finnish
cryosphere and climate cooperation
•Physical and ecological
processes of sea ice and lake ice in polar and sub-polar regions
•Climate change and atmospheric
processes in polar and sub-polar regions
•Glaciers and ice sheets
•Sea ice engineering in cold
•Shipping in ice-covered waters
We look forward to your contribution!
