We are pleased to announce the 2nd International Workshop on Observations and Understanding of Changes in High Mountain and Cold Regions (HiMAC 2018), to be held on October 29-30, 2018, in Sodankyla, Finland. The workshop will bring together scientists from fields of Earth Observations, Meteorology, Climatology, Ecology and Biogeochemistry to discuss various in situ and satellite observations, data post processing, physical and biological processes that are contributed to the changes of environment over high mountain and cold regions on Earth. The workshop will contribute to the common understanding on identifying essential variables and their change processes, the role of EO systems, and its relevant big earth data analysis in tracking these for the optimum benefits of diverse science and societal applications.

The workshop also aims to foster connections and collaborations among the multidisciplinary scientists and Earth Observations communities.

The HiMAC 2018 workshop is organized around three themes:

Earth observations and data products for Arctic and high mountain cold region

Ongoing initiatives addressing main observational gaps

Essential variables for the societal benefit areas over High Mountains and Cold Regions

Present capabilities and data products from Earth Observing satellites

New Earth Observing satellite systems for tracking variables in the Earth three poles (Arctic, Antarctic, High Asian areas)

Upcoming observation systems/ Planned gap-filling satellite concepts

Role of ground-based reference observations in development of geophysical retrieval algorithms and validation

The role of variables in tracking climate, ecology and biogeochemical processes in the three poles

Links of cryosphere processes to carbon cycle

Arctic ecology in changing climate 

Linkage between Arctic warming and the mid-latitude weather and climate

The meeting will be hold at Tahtelantie 62 99600 SODANKYLA Tel. +358 29 539 1000,
