"Solving the Puzzles from Cryosphere


April 15-18, 2019, Pushchino, Russia

Institute of Physicoсhemical and Biological Problems in Soil Science would like to invite you to take part in the International conference "Earth's Cryosphere: Past, Present and Future”. The conference will be held April 15-18, 2019, in Pushchino, Russia. 

The main topics of the conference will be:

  • General, regional and historical geocryology
  • Regional aspects in polar and mountain areas
  • Paleoreconstructions
  • Carbon in permafrost
  • Permafrost soils
  • Cryosphere as ecosystem: microbiological, biotechnological and astrobiological aspects
  • Permafrost hydrology and hydrogeology
  • Physico-chemical peculiarities of frozen ground
  • Geophisycal investigations in permafrost areas
  • Antarctic permafrost and soils
  • Philosophical ideas about past, present and future of cryosphere

We are planning to organize round tables in the following areas:

  • Permafrost mapping
  • Permafrost engineering
  • Permafrost soils classification

One of the partners of the conference is traditionally the Permafrost Young Researchers Network (PYRN). PYRN is an international organization established under the patronage of the International Permafrost Association (IPA) fostering innovative collaboration, seeking to recruit, retain and promote future generations of permafrost researchers. The traditional nomination of the most interesting presentations with the participation of young researchers and round table will be organised during the conference.
