An international conference on high latitude dust will take place at the University of Iceland from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th May 2017. This will be first such conference and focuses on all aspects of dust which is sources from within the high latitudes (North of 50 deg. N and south of 40 deg S). The meeting will include optional field excursions in southern Iceland.
Scientific themes will include:
Sediment supply to high latitude dust sources (glacio-fluvial suspended sediment; catastrophic flooding)
Cold climate aeolian processes
Magnitude, frequency and timing of high latitude dust emissions
Remote sensing of high latitude dust (supply, transport, deposition)
Dust in the cryosphere
Impact of high latitude dust inputs to marine, terrestrial and freshwater environments
Modern high latitude dust as a modern analogue for paleo-dust activity
Palaeo-records/archives of high latitude dust
Challenges of modelling high latitude dust
Anthropogenic influences on high latitude dust emissions
Human impacts of high latitude dust
