Polar and Alpine Events Calendar
To Friday 28 August 2020 - 17:00
The BEPSII Annual Meeting will be held online during the week of 24 - 28 August 2020 and will include various discussions and poster sessions. The meeting will also include an event for Early Career Researchers on the 21st August. BEPSII is an open network for international knowledge exchange related to Biogeochemcial Exchanges Processe at sea ice Interface. BEPSII aims to quantify the role of sea ice in polar ecosystem services – from biodiversity impacts to climate change – and communicate these globally-relevant issues.
Joint BEPSII and ECVice annual meeting is one of the main forum to discuss science highlights but also ongoing and future activities related to sea ice biogeochemistry. The meeting, originally planned to be held in Hobart, will be hold online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are inviting our community to engage in new ways. We hope that BEPSII/ECVice 2020 online will be an important space for discussion for sea ice biogeochemistry community, and to keep momentum in our research, at a time of social distancing. BEPSII/ECVice 2020 will also be devoted to gather BEPSII, ECVice and CATCH communities.
Date: 24-28 August 2020. Planning include one all timezone overlapping session per day as well as "round-the-world" discussion sessions (moving along timezones) and an online poster session.
BEPSII/ECVice meeting will be preceded by an Early Carrier Scientist meeting on the 21-07-2020
In additions to task group updates for BEPSII and ECVice, round-the-world discussion will address:
1. Developing a position analysis for the Antarctic
2. Joint BEPSII-CATCH cruise discussion
3. Developing a joined CATCH -BEPSII SCOR working group
