LYON 2017 First Announcement

Dear colleagues and friends!
A second edition of Lower Yenisei Observation Network Workshop will take place in August 2017, as convened last summer. We are inviting you to participate in this amazing event, at once scientific and social, aboard a passenger cruise ship Aleksandr Matrosov, on its scheduled passage from Krasnoyarsk to Igarka!

Climate change in the high latitudes is amplified, as compared to temperate regions. This makes Arctic and Subarctic ecosystems a focal point for numerous research disciplines. The Yenisei is the largest Arctic river in terms of annual runoff, but it remains the least studied catchment in this region. The aim of the LYON2 workshop is to exchange our findings, share our knowledge and to federate our research efforts in the Yenisei basin.
