ARCUS Invites NSIDC Scientist to be Arctic Visiting Speaker
Senior Research Scientist Tingjun Zhang has been invited to be the first Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) 2007 Arctic Visiting Speaker.
ARCUS established the Arctic Visiting Speaker Series to help provide Arctic researchers with the opportunity to share their knowledge with a range of audiences and communities. Zhang will give a number of lectures over a period of several days in Fairbanks, Alaska, beginning on February 20, 2007:
Zhang’s research focuses on land surface processes in cold seasons and cold regions, especially on permafrost, seasonally frozen ground, snow cover, and their impacts on climate and hydrological cycles. Zhang has also worked with colleagues on permafrost and railroad construction on the Tibetan Plateau.
