ARCA (ARctic present Climate change and pAst extreme events), funded by the Italian Minister of Education and Research (MIUR), aims to develop a conceptual model on the mechanism(s) behind the release of large volumes of cold and fresh water from melting of ice caps, investigating this complex system from both paleoclimatic and modern air-sea-ice interaction process point of view.
The Final Conference of the ARCA Project will be held on 11 October 2016 in Rome (Italy) at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperations. The ARCA Final Conference aims to present the main outcome achieved by the project to open a discussion on how to sustain, in a long-term perspective, the collaboration established between the Scientific Institutions promoting the project and, more in general, to highlight the Italian contribution to the Arctic Research.
Registration and posters submission deadline is 30 July 2016.
