Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting abstracts for the Fall 2012 AGU session we are hosting entitled C030: Polar Snow and Firn Processes.  
Advanced technology has improved capabilities to monitor and model snow and firn changes. Interactions between the atmosphere and surface influence accumulation, firn metamorphism, densification, and chemistry and significantly alter microstructure and stratigraphy. This session will focus on field data, laboratory analyses, and modeling of polar snow and firn processes. We invite abstracts on measurement and modeling of these processes, including those which influence chemistry, photochemistry, metamorphism, and physical and radiative properties. Presentations on the application of new technologies such as terrestrial laser scanning, optical sensing of SSA, and CT scanning, in addition to the incorporation of these data into modeling efforts, are welcomed.

We have a great line up of invited presenters, and are looking forward to an interesting and informative session.

Abstracts are due August 8, 2012, which is just around the corner.  Abstracts can be submitted at the following web address:


Conveners of Session C030
Dr. John Burkhart, Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU)
Dr. Zoe Courville, Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab (CRREL)
Dr. Bob Hawley, Dartmouth College

Dear Cryolisters,

**We'd like to take this opportunity to remind you of a new Cryosphere session (CO38) at this years AGU Fall Meeting, "Supraglacial and Englacial Hydrology".**

Session description: The need to better represent glacial hydrology within ice sheet models and provide inputs to subglacial hydrology models has resulted in a growth in research of the supraglacial and englacial systems. This includes surface meltwater pathways and storage, englacial system evolution at a range of time scales and its influence on meltwater transfer to the subglacial system, the role of hydrology on thermal and structural properties of ice, and implementation of supraglacial and englacial hydrology within glacier and ice sheet models. This session aims to bring together research reporting field investigations and modeling of these systems. We hope that this session will serve as a useful forum for exchange of ideas between field and modeling research groups.

Our session will include invited contributions from Professors Doug Benn and Andrew Fountain, and we are looking forward to an interesting and exciting range of talks and posters, so please consider this new session when you are submitting your abstracts in the coming days!

Best wishes and looking forward to seeing many of you at AGU.

Caroline Clason, Hari Rajaram and Thomas Phillips

Dear colleagues,

we wish to invite submissions to our AGU session entitled " GC004:
Barrow, Alaska: Decades of Iconic Data Sets as a Cornerstone of Arctic

Barrow has served as a base for all aspects of Arctic research. Local,
traditional knowledge among the resident I?upiat extends back many
generations. Thus, Barrow is a potential flagship site for the U.S.
Interagency Arctic Observing Network (IAON) and international programs
in Alaska. This session focuses on Barrow region data sets of high
quality, long duration, and high scientific and stakeholder relevance.
Examples include climate stations, river and sea ice breakup dates,
plant community changes or permafrost borehole temperatures. The aims
are to showcase such iconic data and help create a framework for their
sustainment and application within IAON to address key questions about a
changing Arctic.

Our invited speakers are:
George Divoky (Friends of Cooper Island)
Craig George (North Slope Borough Department of Wildlife Management)
Steven Oberbauer (Florida International University)
Matt Shupe (NOAA / University of Colorado)
