The IASC Workshop on Effects and Extremes of High Latitude Dust (HLD) was co-organized by the IceDust Association at the Agricultural University of Iceland in Reykjavík on 13th-14th February 2019. More than 38 scientists from 13 countries contributed by presenting current research on all aspects of HLD and other aerosols. The Workshop opened multidisciplinary discussions and approaches how to investigate HLD, by leading experts in atmospheric-, cryospheric-, marine-, soil-, and microbiological sciences.

Detailed program of the Workshop (FINAL AGENDA) and Workshop Report

Liane Benning, Germany: Dust feed bugs and helps speed up ice melt in the Arctic
Zongbo Shi, UK: Dust mineralogy: impact on ocean biogeochemistry and climate
Marek Lewandowski, Poland: Dust over Svalbard: first results on mineral assemblages, deposited in the firn of selected glaciers of the Southern Spitsbergen

The overarching aim of this interdisciplinary workshop is to review our understanding of effects and extremes of high latitude dust in the past, present and future, and to identify research needs.

Topics of interest of this workshop include such as:

• Observing effects and extremes of HLD
• Sources of HLD
• Modelling of HLD
• Satellite detection of HLD
• Forecasting HLD
• HLD and climate change
• Relevance of HLD for society/users
