AGU session announcement: Interpretation techniques in radioglaciology

King, Edward C.
Your attention is drawn to the following AGU session.  Abstract submission is now open at

http://agu-fm11.abstractcentral.com/

and the deadline for submissions is 4 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.

Session C16: Interpretation techniques in radioglaciology: advances, insights and cautionary tales

Convenors: Ed King, Joe MacGregor and Kenny Matsuoka

Large quantities of airborne and ground-based radio-echo sounding (RES) data have been acquired over glaciers and polar ice sheets in recent years, and more campaigns are underway or planned for the near future. Contained within these datasets are records of ice dynamics, surface-accumulation patterns, and information on basal properties. Techniques for both qualitative and quantitative interpretation of RES data have been developing to keep pace with the increasing rate of data collection.  This session will bring together researchers investigating different regions of the cryosphere but interpreting fundamentally similar RES data, while facing similar issues. Case studies may cover, for example, the nature of the echo-free zone; the nature of isochrone folding in ice streams; the origin of non-isochronal radar reflectors; the inversion of radar stratigraphy for surface accumulation; and the impact of spatially-varying radar attenuation on inferences of basal properties.  Th
 is session will also address methodologies for handling large and/or closely-spaced datasets such as automatic layer picking; resolution of polarization mismatches; and 3D data visualisation.


We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco,

Regards,
Ed King, Joe MacGregor and Kenny Matsuoka

AGU session announcement "Glacier Surging and Ice Streaming: Fast Flow and Instabilities"

Jiskoot, Hester
[CRYOLIST] AGU session announcement: Interpretation techniques in radioglaciology
Dear Colleagues,
 
Your attention is drawn to the following AGU session.  Abstract submission is now open at

http://agu-fm11.abstractcentral.com/

and the deadline for submissions is 4 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT.

C13: Glacier Surging and Ice Streaming: Fast Flow and Instabilities

Convenors: Gwenn Flowers, Hester Jiskoot and Ian Joughin

Surge-type glaciers and ice streams exhibit fast and slow modes of flow that are believed to be caused by intrinsic flow instabilities. In recent decades significant progress has been made in understanding the mechanisms of surging and streaming, in part due to developments in remote sensing, geophysics, modeling, and longterm observations. We invite contributions that address all aspects of glacier and ice sheet fast flow, particularly those that show progress in understanding its controls, mechanisms, and consequences. Topics may include, but are not limited to: geophysical and remote sensing observations; glaciotectonic signatures; modeling; surging and climate connections; and stick-slip motion under glaciers or ice streams.

 

We look forward to an interesting range of abstracts submitted to this session and hope to see you in San Francisco.

Best regards,

Hester Jiskoot, Gwenn Flowers and Ian Joughin
