Call for abstracts, ISAES 2019 22-26 July 2019

이주한 기술지원실
Dear Cryolist members,

The deadline for submitting abstracts to the XIII international Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences (ISAES) to be held in Incheon, Republic of Korea, 22-26 July 2019 has been extended. The following session might be of interest to colleagues.


Abstract submission is open until 21 April 2019, and application for side meetings ends on 30 April 2019.  Full details of registration and the field trips on offer will be available on the symposium website in due course.

Advanced Technologies for Research and Operations in Polar Regions

Satellite and airborne observations show that large ice sheets in Antarctica and Greenland are undergoing rapid changes. These rapid changes include significant mass loss around the margins, speed-up of glaciers and break-up ice shelves followed by speed-up glaciers buttressed these ice shelves. Understanding the processes causing these rapid changes for incorporating them into numerical models is essential to determine ice sheets response to a warming climate.
Technical advances in autonomous vehicle and sensors offer opportunities to collect much needed key input data for numerical models. These technical advances can improve safety and frequency of observations, and also enable measurements that can only be done with autonomous vehicles. In this session, we will invite contributions on new tools developed for measurements of the cryosphere. Topics will include autonomous high latitude observations, design, test and use of advanced sensors for key geophysical measurements, and major equipment and facilities for polar research. Specific topics of interest include:
- Autonomous platforms and results from their use;
- Sensors for geophysical measurements in polar regions;
- Technological advances for safe operations in the polar environment;
- Integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV), and other robotic platforms into polar research and operations;
- Low-temperature materials development;
- Alternative energy systems;
- Cold regions construction engineering; and
- Polar transportation.
