2019 Interdisciplinary Antarctic Earth Science Conference

When: October 13-15, 2019

Where: Camp Cedar Glen, near Julian, CA


Overview: This biennial conference is intended to provide a forum to present and discuss the results of your exciting new Antarctic research across the spectrum of the Earth Sciences from deep time and deep earth to modern biological interaction with surficial processes.  We will have multidisciplinary sessions for talks and posters (see below for meeting details and logistics).

Overarching Theme:  Intersecting Spheres 

  • Cause and Effect: Inferring Process from Pattern in Antarctic Earth History

  • Intentional & Unintentional Collisions: Outcomes of Targeted and Serendipitous Collaboration

  • Sticky Edges: Transformative Science at the Margins of Emerging or Existing Disciplines


2019 Antarctic Deep Field Camp Planning WorkshopNSF Logo

When: October 15-16, 2019

Where: Camp Cedar Glen, near Julian, CA

Overview: The major goal of the workshop is to identify key scientific research topics that will help determine the highest priority sites for the next potential multidisciplinary U.S. Antarctic deep field camp and to facilitate communication between new and veteran scientists. Such a camp is not guaranteed, but depends on interest and proposal pressure from our research community in the context of NSF priorities and Antarctic logistical constraints. The ultimate goal is not to choose a single site, but provide NSF a portfolio of the highest priority sites, along with justification for each (see below for meeting details and logistics).
