The PCI steering committee and the Paul Scherrer Institute proudly announce:

The 14th International Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Ice (PCI-2018 in Zürich) 

​Date: 08-12 January 2018

Aarhus University and Greenland Institute of Natural Resources are proud to host the International Conference of the North Water Polynya 2017. The theme for the conference is "Natural science on the North Water Polynya".

The world is heating up — and much more quickly than expected, a recent Arctic research report states."Arctic temperatures are rising faster than the global average," the Snow, Water, Ice and Permafrost in the Arctic assessment states.

Temperatures in the Arctic are rising two times higher than the rest of the planet and are already affecting other parts of the world, according to an international assessment.
