Climate Change in the Arctic: Atmosphere, Sea Ice, Ecology and Remote Sensing

Organized by the College of Global Change and Earth System Science, Beijing Normal University 13. September 2017

Climate change in the arctic regions has attracted more and more young scientists and graduate students in China. 

Friday, October 13, 17:55 - 19:25

Location: Hafnarkot, Ground Level

The pattern of recent surface warming observed in Arctic exhibits undergoing dramatic changes during the past few decades, with wide ranging impacts on natural and social systems. From four aspects, including atmosphere, sea ice, ecology and remote sensing, this session aims at presenting the views and initiating ideas by young scientists from the Joint Center on Global Change Studies, Beijing Normal University.

Speakers:

  • Yating Chen, Master Candidate: Spatial Change of Carbon Storage in Circum-Arctic Permafrost Area under Geoengineering
  • Xinchen Lv, Master Candidate: Seasonal Patterns of Canopy Photosynthesis Captured by Remotely Sensed Fluorescence and Vegetation Indexes at Mid-to-high Latitude Forests
  • Yifan Ding, PhD Candidate: Derivation of Melt Ponds on Arctic Sea Ice using MODIS Surface Reflectance Data
  • Yuanyuan Zhang, PhD Candidate: The Potential Role of Sea Ice Leads in the Seasonal Arctic Sea Ice Extent Prediction
  • Zhuoqi Chen, Associate Professor: The Latest Image Mosaic of Greenland Based on Landsat 8
  • Chuanfeng Zhao, Professor: Association Between Arctic Warming and Mid-Latitude Pollution
