International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences
From August 26 through August 30 this year the 10th International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences with take place at University of California - Santa Barbara. It will be a gathering of over 400 scientists from over 35 countries. The first such symposium was held in 1963. The title chosen for this, the 10th one, is "Antarctica: A Keystone in a Changing World." It should be an interesting topic with the Antarctic showing so many of the early and/key signs of climate change, as well as its role in telling about past climate and its potential to cause further climate change. You can read the news article I heard about the symposium from here.
