An international conference on high latitude dust will take place at the University of Iceland from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th May 2017.  This will be the first such conference and focuses on all aspects of dust which is sourced from within the high latitudes (North of 50 deg. N and south of 40 deg. S).  The meeting will include optional field excursions in southern Iceland.


Scientific themes will include:

·         Sediment supply to high latitude dust sources (glacio-fluvial suspended sediment; catastrophic flooding)
·         Cold climate aeolian processes
·         Magnitude, frequency and timing of high latitude dust emissions
·         Remote sensing of high latitude dust (supply, transport, deposition)
·         Dust in the cryosphere
·         Impact of high latitude dust inputs to marine, terrestrial and freshwater environments
·         Modern high latitude dust as a modern analogue for paleo-dust activity
·         Palaeo-records/archives of high latitude dust
·         Challenges of modelling high latitude dust
·         Anthropogenic influences on high latitude dust emissions
·         Human impacts of high latitude dust
