Conference and Workshop

Climate Impacts on Glaciers and Biosphere in Fuego-Patagonia

July 14th to July 19th, Berlin

The GABY-VASA project, a joint project of University of Magallanes (Punta Arenas), the Instituto Antártico Chileno (INACH, Chile), and in Germany the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and RWTH Aachen University on dendrochronology, climatology and glaciology in Southern Patagonia and the Cordillera Darwin is pleased to invite you to a conference and workshop to Berlin from 14th to 19th July 2017.

Overall Conference Objective

On Monday, 17th and Tuesday, 18th July, 2017, an open science meeting will be held, open to everybody, with potentially sessions on

  • dendrochronology
  • dendro-ecology,
  • climate variability and climate history
  • climate change
  • biological responses to climate forcing
  • glaciology, glacier change
  • glacio-isotasy and related topics in earth sciences

as well as other related topics.

The regional focus will be Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and adjacent islands, the sub-Antarctic islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. There will be ample possibilities to discuss contributions and to elaborate on open scientific issues as well as new project ideas.

On Wednesday, July 19th, 2017, there will be an internal workshop of the GABY-VASA group with participants from Chile and Germany. Particpants from outside the project groups may nevertheless join us if they wish to participate.
