AGU 2017 - Modeling of the Cryosphere: Glaciers and Ice Sheets (session # 23492)
Please consider submitting an abstract to the following session at the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting (New
Orleans, 11-15 December 2017):
Modeling of the Cryosphere: Glaciers and Ice Sheets
This session focuses on process-based modeling of glaciers and ice sheets that improves our understanding of ice dynamics or enhances the capabilities of current
models. We invite contributions from a broad range of theoretical, numerical, or experimental studies that explore new or improved representations of physical processes relevant to ice flow. The range of topics that is encouraged includes, but is not limited
to: basal processes (such as glacial hydrology, erosion, surging, the onset of ice streams), mechanical and thermodynamic processes (constitutive relationships, material behavior, ice fracturing), and ice-ocean interactions (for example calving, grounding
We are very excited about our two invited speakers, Hélène Seroussi (NASA JPL) and Marianne Haseloff (Princeton/GFDL).
