Arctic Palaeoclimate and its Extremes (APEX) – Recent Advances
APEX - Arctic Palaeoclimate and its Extremes is a network research programme aiming to understand Arctic climatic changes beyond instrumental records. Our particular emphasis is to focus on the magnitude/frequency of the climate variability and, in particular, the "extremes" versus the “normal” conditions of the climate system. It is an interdisciplinary programme that integrates marine and terrestrial science and utilizes modelling and field observations. APEX involves scientists from 15 European countries, Canada and USA and is one of the coordinating programmes for palaeoclimate research during the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007/2008.
The Second APEX Conference and Workshop will comprise two and a half days of presentations and discussions on current Arctic research including that related to the International Polar Year 2007/2008. The conference will be hosted by Durham University, in Durham City in the North East of England, a spectacular cathedral city with an amazing heritage. Narrow cobbled streets wind their way around the rocky peninsula leading up to the majestic Norman cathedral and castle. The cathedral and castle not only dominate the skyline, they are also a designated a World Heritage Site. 1st April 18:00 - 4th April 13:00, 2008
