The planned Workshop on the dynamics and mass budget of Arctic glaciers in Szczyrk, Poland, between 26-28 January 2021, has been postponed to 2022. Instead, a short online meeting will be held on 26 January 2021 (13:00-16:00 CET). The meeting will start with three keynote presentations, followed by a break and an open forum to discuss ongoing developments within the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology.
- 13:00-13:30: Koji Fujita - Physically based summer temperature reconstruction from melt layers in ice cores
- 13:30-14:00: Ruth Mottram - Forecasting future declines: high resolution SMB for Arctic glaciers
- 14:00-14:30: Shawn Marshall - The transition to temperate firn and the development of a deep firn aquifer at Kaskawulsh Glacier, St. Elias Mountains, Yukon
- 14:30-15:00: Break
- 15:00-16:00: Open forum
In case you would like to attend the online meeting, please register here.
The objective of the Network is to facilitate research on the dynamics and mass budget of Arctic glaciers. The Network wants to make a significant contribution to assessments on the impact of climate change in the Arctic region. The focus is on the effect of glaciers on sea-level change and on the freshwater input into fjords and embayments. In some parts of the Arctic (e.g. Iceland), rapidly changing glaciers may affect shipping and infrastructure. The Network aims to study such glaciers and to increase our understanding of the mechanisms behind rapid change. The Network also wants to stimulate collaboration between glaciologists and climate modelers. The terms of reference for the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology can be found HERE.
