Conference on Climate Change in high Latitudes

10-Year Anniversary Conference: Climate Change in High Latitudes

Date: September 3 - 6, 2012

Venue: Bergen, Norway

Website: http://conf.bccr.no/

The conference opens up for registration and abstract submission on February 1, 2012

Abstract submission deadline: May, 1st

Outline of the conference:

  • Plenary sessions with solicited and contributed lectures
  • Poster presentations - which will be the main arena for scientific presentations
  • Keynote talks by key international experts on the various sessions speakers
  • Discussion forums
  • Social events and opportunities to sample the panoramic Western Norway fjord district (The foremost scenery in the world, according to National Geographic) and the medieval city of Bergen


  • Session 1: Climate variability, sensitivity, thresholds and predictability

Here we invite oral and poster contributions covering past present and future aspects of high latitude climate variability and sensitivity, how high and lower latitudes are linked, the potential of threshold behaviour in the system as well as contributions on predictable aspects of high latitude climate dynamics.

  • Session 2: Coupling between climate and biogeochemical cycles

We invite contributions on the linkages and feedbacks between the climate system and biogeochemical cycles - in a bipolar perspective

  • Session 3: Ocean, ice, atmosphere, land surface processes

In this session we invite empirical and modelling contributions on important processes and their interactions, driving climate change in high latitudes

  • Session 4: Climate projections and ecosystem responses

Here we invite contributions analysing global and regional model simulations and climate projections (e.g. CMIP5 and CORDEX) as well as studies linking climate scenarios with ecosystem responses and interactions
