Welcome to the Northwest Glaciologists Conference 2019

October 4 - 5, 2019

We invite you to join us in Corvallis, Oregon October 4th and 5th to share your recent results, discuss current ideas, and build future collaborations within the broader world of glaciological research. The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science at Oregon State University comprises a breadth of scientists working in polar and high mountain environments and this meeting will offer an opportunity to see how glaciers interact interact with other landscape processes.

We will have a packed schedule of world-wide research being led by glaciologists from across the Pacific Northwest and Alaska as well as studies on Pacific Northwest and Alaska glaciers and their environments.

This conference has a tradition of being a warm and inviting conference to ask questions, learn about the process of science, and find mentors. We highly encourage student presentations. Undergraduates, graduate students, and other early career scientists will receive priority in the presentation schedule.

There will be a social gathering on Friday night within walking distance of campus, details will be provided at the meeting.

We are planning two excursion options, one to a local winery on Thursday, October 3rd and one to Mount Hood on Sunday, October 6th.
