The 9th Portuguese Polar Sciences Conference will take place on November 6th and 7th, 2017 and will be hosted at Universidade da Beira Interior – Faculdade de Engenharia, Rua da Calçada Fonte Lameiro, Covilhã, Portugal.

The Portuguese Conference on Polar Sciences is the forum where are presented the most recently advances in Portuguese polar projects. It is also a place to delineate new strategies for national and international cooperation.

Abstracts´ submission – The guidelines for abstracts´ submission, listed below, must be taken into consideration and so the guidelines for oral and for posters´ communications.

1. It is acceptable a maximum of 3 abstracts, but only one as oral communication.
2. Abstract´s text and title should be written in English.
3. Each abstract´s text field allows you to enter a maximum of 2000 characters, spaces included.
4. Oral communications time is 15 minutes (10 minutes for the presentation plus 5 minutes for debate). The presentation must be in English.
5. Posters’ communications must be in portrait format (maximum A0 type: 120x80cm) and written in English.

All communications submitted will be analyzed by the Scientific Committee and the participants with abstracts accepted will be notified by an email from the Organization Committee by October 17th, 2017.

SEGAL improves free ocean tide loading provider PDF Print E-mail

The free ocean tide loading provider (http://holt.oso.chalmers.se/loading/), endorsed by the International Earth Rotation Service, is a web-service used by groups all of the world to analyse their GNSS data. It computes how much the position of a given GPS station varies due to the varying weight of the ocean tides. This effect can reach several centimetres and needs to be corrected to obtain the most accurate position. SEGAL now computes these corrections for the web-service for the latest ocean tide models TPXO.8, FES2012 and FES2014b.

At SEGAL we have developed a software package, called Hector (http://segal.ubi.pt/hector/), to analyse geophysical time series. Its main objective is to estimate a secular motion in, for example, time series of sea level, GPS positions or temperature while taking into account the temporal correlation. If the temporal correlation is omitted, as is done in other software packages, the estimated uncertainties are not correct. The latest release, version 1.6, has added features such as the possibility to model the post-seismic deformation that occurs after a large earthquake.
