AGU session announcement "Water at the Ice Bed Interface: Movement, Storage and Signatures"

Tracy Brennand

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the following session at the AGU Fall Meeting 2011 in San Francisco, California, USA (December 5th-9th 2011). 

C36. Water at the Ice Bed Interface: Movement, Storage and Signatures

Convenors: Tracy Brennand and Matthew Burke

Meltwater is an important part of the glacier system controlling both the flow dynamics and stability of glaciers and ice sheets. Yet the spatial and temporal variability of glacier plumbing systems and their necessary links to glacier behaviour and dynamics are not fully understood. This session aims to facilitate the integration of knowledge from paleo and contemporary glacier settings, and to this end welcomes papers relating to any aspect of glacier hydrology. This may include, but is not restricted to: i) meltwater routing beneath glaciers and ice sheets; ii) meltwater storage and outburst floods; iii) numerical modelling of the hydrological system; and iv) glaciofluvial geomorphology/sedimentology.

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. You can find further details at http://www.agu.org/fallmeeting.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about this session.

Regards,

Tracy Brennand, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC, CA ([hidden email])
