International Symposium on
Reconciling observations and models of elastic and viscoelastic deformation due to ice mass change

30 May - 2 June, 2013, Ilulissat, Greenland

Symposium Theme
Past and present changes in the mass balance of the Earth's glaciers and ice caps induce present-day deformation of the solid Earth on a range of spatial scales, from the very local to global. Of principal interest are geodetic observations that validate, or may be assimilated into, models of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) and/or constrain models of present-day ice mass change through measurements of elastic rebound. Using geometric measurements alone, elastic and viscoelastic deformations cannot be separated without additional models or observations. The conference will focus on resolving these issues and work on dissemination of these measurements within the glaciological community.

    Observations of present-day changes in glaciers and ice sheets
    Measurements and models of elastic rebound
    Cryospheric deformation in low viscosity regions
    Reconciling models and observations of GIA
    Glacial isostatic adjustment on a heterogeneous Earth: Going beyond 1D Maxwell Earth models
