The Institute of Physico-Chemical and Biological Problems in Soil Science is pleased to announce that the traditional permafrost conference will be held 15-18 April in Pushchino, near Moscow, Russia. The theme for the 2019 conference is "Solving the puzzles from cryosphere".

The topics will cover a broad range of cryospheric questions:

  • Regional aspects in polar and mountain areas
  • Paleoreconstructions
  • Carbon in permafrost
  • Cryosphere as ecosystem: microbiological, biotechnological and astrobiological aspects
  • Permafrost soils
  • Permafrost hydrology, hydrogeology and glaciology
  • Physico-chemical peculiarities of frozen ground
  • Geophisycal investigations in permafrost areas
  • Antarctic permafrost and soils
  • Philosophical ideas about past, present and future of cryosphere

We are planning to organize round tables in the following areas:

  • Permafrost mapping
  • Permafrost engineering
  • Permafrost soils classification

We will speak English and Russian, simultaneous English translation will be provided.
