We would like to highlight the following cryosphere focussed session to be held at the AGU 2012 Fall meeting:
CO34: Reconstructing ice-sheet behavior on millennial timescales: Integrating high resolution geological data with model simulations
This session focuses on the comparison and integration of high-resolution numerical ice-sheet models and detailed terrestrial and marine geological data sets, to better resolve the geometry, volume and ice dynamical characteristics of the Earth?s ice sheets. Such reconstructions provide critical benchmarks for ice sheet and climate models and reduce uncertainty in predictions of the response of modern ice sheets (and thus sea level) to climate change. An integrated Earth systems approach is critical to achieve this. It is only by combining high-resolution modelling with comprehensive, highly precise empirical paleo-ice sheet constraints that a full understanding of the mechanisms of past change can be determined, and predictions for the future made with greater confidence.
In light of ongoing developments in the fields of high-resolution ice sheet modelling, allied with the increasing precision of geophysical and geochronological tools with which to reconstruct ice sheet change, we invite submissions from groups and individuals addressing data / model comparisons of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets and paleo ice sheets during major climate transitions such as those recorded after the Last Glacial Maximum and earlier rapid climate transitions. We also encourage submissions from groups and individuals using theoretical and conceptual modelling studies that explicitly incorporate field data (e.g. conventional terrestrial and marine radiocarbon, multiple cosmogenic nuclides as well as marine geophysical data and glacio isostatic adjustment)
Reconstructing the pattern, timing & rate of decay of Earth?s contemporary and paleo ice sheets during periods of rapid climate change allows us to assess their sensitivity to environmental forcings beyond our short observational window. An integrated Earth systems approach is critical to achieve this & reduce uncertainty in predictions of the response of modern ice sheets (and thus sea level) to future change. This session focuses on the comparison and integration of high-resolution numerical ice-sheet models & detailed terrestrial and marine geological data sets, to better resolve the geometry, volume & ice dynamical characteristics of the Earth?s ice sheets.
Look forward to see you at fall AGU meeting.

Subject: APECS Career Development Panel at IGS Fairbanks Symposium
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
APECS is hosting a career development panel at the IGS Symposium on Glaciers and Ice Sheets in a warming climate in Fairbanks, Alaska and YOU are invited!
Have you ever wondered how best to find your next job or your first post-doc after your PhD? Or have you ever wondered how to balance a successful career in polar and cryospheric research with having a family?
Well now is your opportunity to find out...
Panelists include Suzanne Bevan, of Swansea University, Erin Pettit of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Ross Powell of Northern Illinois University, and Ian Willis of Cambridge University. Each panel member will give a short overview of their career to date and then there will be a discussion session with the opportunity for all attendees to ask questions of our panelists on all matters pertaining to building a successful career in polar or cryospheric research.
The panel discussion will take place on Monday, 25 June 2012 from 5:30-6:30 PM in the Wood Center Ballroom on the University of Alaska Fairbanks Campus - the main presentation hall for the IGS conference. Attendance is open to anyone attending the meeting, but especially graduate students/postgraduate researchers, post-docs and other early career scientists. Sadly, we don't have a budget for any refreshments during the panel but we will be going for drinks, and possibly dinner, at a venue nearby after the session.

Hope to see you all there,
