The UK Arctic Science conferences have brought together researchers with a common interest in the Arctic environment. Since its inception in 2009 there has been a great diversity in the science that has been presented. The conference is multidisciplinary and with an inclusive approach to abstract submission. We welcome abstracts across all the themes of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) Working Groups, namely:


Including: Atmospheric Dynamics, Arctic- Mid-latitude Weather Linkages, Air Chemistry and Pollution


Including: Sea-ice processes (physical and biogeochemical), modelling and prediction, permafrost, glacial environments.


Including: Ocean dynamics and prediction, biological, ecosystem and geochemical processes, marine geology and paleo records of arctic change

Social and Human

Including: Security, governance and law, natural resources including fisheries, human health and well-being


Including: arctic terrestrial and freshwater environments, landscapes and biota.

The organisers particularly welcome abstracts which highlight interdisciplinary connections and will look to create strong cross-cutting sessions within the conference programme.
