The National Research Council's Polar Research Board (PRB) is pleased to announce a call for abstracts for Session GC30, "Links Between Rapid Arctic Change and Mid-Latitude Weather Patterns". The session will be convened at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, 3-7 December 2012, in San Francisco, California.

Recent changes in the Arctic are among the most striking on Earth. Since the 1980s, summer sea ice has diminished, snow on high-latitude land has melted earlier in spring, and coastal permafrost temperatures have warmed. These changes have altered the energy exchange between the surface and atmosphere, causing large-scale air temperature anomalies twice the global average. These changes are expected to affect weather patterns in both the Arctic and mid-latitudes, and may have played a role in the increased frequency of extreme weather events.

This session invites abstracts on model simulations or observations that elucidate the mechanisms by which northern hemisphere atmospheric circulation is responding to Arctic change.

The abstract submission deadline is Wednesday, 8 August 2012, at 11:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time. To submit an abstract, you must enter the first author's current AGU member ID and password. Please go to: for more information.

Dear Colleagues,

AGU meetings have always been an excellent place to learn of
the latest scientific accomplishments.  This year, session C031
is planned to address the technology and systems that permitted
such scientific data collection and transmission in the harsh
polar environments.  The session posting follows.

We invite your abstract submission before the 8 August 2012
deadline.  Please distribute this announcement to other
interested parties.

With best regards,
Dale, Louis, Todd, and Roy

Session description:

Rapidly evolving technology including high latitude communications,
low power electronics and sensors, new power sources, and advanced
signal processing are enabling new and enhanced science at high
latitudes. This session is intended for posters or talks that document
existing technology enabling science in fixed locations and mobile
platforms at high latitudes in the field now, that are currently being
developed or that are at earlier stages.

Abstract deadline:     Wednesday, August 8, 2012
