1. Call for Manuscripts
Special Issue of Advances in Atmospheric Sciences (AAS)
Impact of a Rapidly Changing Arctic on Eurasian Climate and Weather

Editors of the journal Advances in Atmospheric Sciences (AAS) announce a
call for manuscript submissions for a special issue entitled, "Impact of
a Rapidly Changing Arctic on Eurasian Climate and Weather." This issue
will be coordinated by Lead Editor Xiangdong Zhang and Guest Editors
Thomas Jung, Muyin Wang, Yong Luo, Tido Semmler, and Andrew Orr.

The Arctic climate system has experienced many drastic changes during
recent decades, such as its average surface air temperature increasing
at around twice the global average rate, and a large decline in sea ice
cover. At the same time, an increase in frequency of climate and weather
extreme occurrences has also been observed. It has therefore been
hypothesized that changes in mid-latitude atmospheric circulation and
weather patterns may be attributable to Arctic climate change.
Pronounced scientific controversy in testing this hypothesis, along with
important socio-economic implications of a possible Arctic-Eurasia
climate linkage, makes this one of the most timely and attractive
scientific topics in climate research.

This special issue will showcase recent progresses in our understanding
of the coupling between Arctic climate change and Eurasian mid-latitude
climate and weather, including extremes. The compilation of the research
papers in this special issue is expected to fill scientific gaps and
contribute to a more thorough understanding of the problem.

Submissions in, but not limited to, the following research areas are
invited:

- Observational and statistical evidence of changes in Eurasian weather
and climate, as well as occurrence of extremes, in conjunction with
changes in Arctic climate;
- Detection and attribution of linkages between Arctic climate change
and Eurasian mid-latitude climate and weather based on observations and
numerical model experiments; and
- Evaluation of uncertainties and their potential impacts on
Arctic-Eurasia linkages arising from the use of relatively short
observational records and caused by model deficiencies.

The expected publication date of this issue is late summer or
early fall 2017.

Manuscript submission deadline: 31 January 2017.

Volume 39, Number 2, 2015

Editors of the journal Etudes/Inuit/Studies announce the release of
Volume 39, Number 2 entitled, "Archaeology of Nunavik and Labrador:
Tribute to Patrick Plumet." This volume was coordinated by guest editor
Yves Labreche.

Etudes/Inuit/Studies is a biannual scholarly journal that has been
published since 1977. The journal is devoted to the study of Inuit
societies, either traditional or contemporary, in the general
perspective of social sciences and humanities (ethnology, politics,
archaeology, linguistics, history, etc.). In addition to a number of
articles, each volume contains book reviews, a list of scientific
events, and annual reviews of recent theses and articles published in
other journals.

3. Special Announcement
International Arctic Science Committee (IASC)
U.S. Representatives Elected

The Polar Research Board (PRB) announces newly elected delegates to the
International Arctic Science Committee (IASC). The board recently
completed a rotation of the Working Group membership and announce the
election of Matthew Druckenmiller, Michelle Mack, Robert Hawley, Karen
Frey, and Lawrence Hamilton to the U.S. delegation.

The PRB serves as the U.S. National Committee to IASC, a
non-governmental, international scientific organization that promotes
and facilitates cooperation in all aspects of Arctic research and is
responsible for the selection of the U.S. Delegate, Alternate Delegate,
and two members to each of the Working Groups of IASC.

Members are selected after careful consideration of the range of
expertise and the present composition of the IASC Working Groups as a
whole.

The board thanks members that are rotating off for their service and
contributions to IASC, including Skip Walker, Walt Meier, Mary-Louise
Timmermans, and Sven Haakanson.

The full U.S. delegation roster includes:

U.S. DELEGATE AND ALTERNATE DELEGATE

- Larry Hinzman, University of Alaska Fairbanks
- Matthew Druckenmiller, National Snow and Ice Data Center, and
Rutgers University

U.S. REPRESENTATIVES TO THE WORKING GROUPS

TERRESTRIAL WORKING GROUP

- Vladimir Romanovsky, University of Alaska Fairbanks

CRYOSPHERE WORKING GROUP
- Robert Hawley, Dartmouth College
- Elizabeth Hunke, Los Alamos National Laboratory

MARINE WORKING GROUP
- Karen Frey, Clark University
- Lee Cooper, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
