We invite you to submit abstracts to the Cryospheric Hazardssession that we are excited to host at AGU in San Francisco this year. The session is co-organized between cryosphere and hazards, see description below. Please share with colleagues who might be interested, thanks!
Conveners: Mylene Jacquemart (CU Boulder), Dan Shugar (U Calgary), Ned Bair (UC Santa Barbara), HP Marshall (Boise State)
Hazards from the rapidly changing cryosphere directly affect people in mountain areas and at high latitudes. Indirectly, these hazards affect many more people living downstream. In this session, we invite contributions on cryospheric hazards to foster connections between the hydrological, glaciological, geomorphological and natural hazard research communities who share common threads. We invite research on all cryospheric hazards, including and not limited to outburst floods, debris flows, rockfall and rock avalanches, supra- and paraglacial landslides, permafrost degradation, slope instability and creep hazards, volcano ice hazards, glacier instabilities, ice and snow avalanches, fracture of ice and snow, ice and snow mechanics, rain on snow flooding, hazards from sea and freshwater ice, coastal erosion due to reduced sea ice coverage and thawing of ice-rich bluffs, as well as cascading processes. We welcome studies using field observations, remote sensing, and numerical modelling to improve our: process understanding, assessment, and early warning systems.
