Dear Cryolister,

On behalf of the organising committee for this year?s (4-6 Sept) IGS British Branch Meeting in Aberdeen, we would like to remind you that the abstract deadline is at the end of this week, Friday 27 July 2012. Please send abstracts of up to 300 words in an email attachment to [hidden email] clearly stating your preference for either oral or poster presentation.

In addition to details already sent out (and copied below), we would also like to highlight two further aspects of the meeting:
(1) The meeting will now host the presentation to Professor David Sugden of the Seligman Crystal (see message from Magnus below).
(2) As in previous years, there will also be a UK Polar Network Mentoring Panel held during the meeting.

We can still accommodate some late registrations to join the 80 members registered so far. This can be done via:

8th July 2012 message from Magnus and earlier posting of meeting details follows:

It is with great pleasure that I inform you that the IGS Council has decided to award the Seligman Crystal to our esteemed member, Professor David Sugden. He has graciously accepted and in consultation with him, it has been decided that the award ceremony will be held as part of the IGS British Branch Annual Meeting due to be held at the University of Aberdeen at the beginning of September. We would especially like to encourage older members to attend (we always get a large contingent of younger ones). We have already had a positive response from several senior members so please sign up as soon as possible so we can start planning and work towards making this a very memorable event. And as the Seligman ceremony is indeed an international event we especially welcome attendees from outside the UK.

IGS British Branch Annual Meeting 2012 - University of Aberdeen

Dates of Event: Wednesday 5th September ? Thursday 6th September 2012

**Registration now open**

Closure of Registration:  12th July 2012


The 37th International Glaciological Society British Branch meeting will be hosted by the Cryosphere and Climate Change  (CCC) group in the School of Geosciences, University of Aberdeen.
As with previous annual meetings, the event will comprise an informal two days of presentations on all aspects of snow and ice research. We welcome all glaciologists from senior researchers to postgraduate students to attend and present their work. We particularly encourage international colleagues who may be planning to visit the UK around this time to join us in Aberdeen and present their work.  The meeting will consist of both oral and poster presentation sessions.

To pay for registration, accommodation and the annual dinner (and further information) please visit the University of Aberdeen  ?Online store?  at the URL below and follow the links


There are several options for travelling to Aberdeen, by either by road, rail or air. However please bear in mind that booking early is advisable in order to get good value tickets. The presence of the UK oil industry in Aberdeen often leads to the best travel options selling out quickly. Additionally the British Science Festival will be running in parallel with the IGB British Branch Meeting at the University of Aberdeen, so we expect higher than usual demand.

The conference begins at 09:30 on Wednesday 5th September so most delegates will plan to arrive on Tuesday 4th September.


Aberdeen is well connected by air to most major UK destinations along with several European hubs. As well as regular flights operated by British Airways between London and Aberdeen, this includes several budget airlines which operate direct daily flights. Easyjet from London Luton and Gatwick. Flybe flies from Leed-Bradford, Birmingham, Manchester and Belfast. Aer Lingus fly from Dublin and there are also direct flights from Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, Copenhagen and several other major European airports. The conference will finish at 16:00 on Thursday 6th September allowing plenty of time for a range of flight options that evening.


Aberdeen lies on the East Coast main line which provides daily direct services from London, in addition to regular services from Edinburgh and Glasgow from various rail companies. Travel from the west of England and Wales to Edinburgh or Glasgow is best via Lancaster and the west coast. Route planning and tickets from all over the UK can be found at the National rail website.

Caledonian Sleeper Train:

The Calendonian Sleeper trains runs Monday to Thursday from London Euston and other English stations and details can be found on the website. It is possible to get bargain berths to Aberdeen from as little as ?19 one-way. In general these are released every Friday morning about 12 weeks in advance. These will be issued very soon. Unsurprisingly these do sell out quickly.


Aberdeen is reached from the south by taking the M6/M74 or M1/A68 to Edinburgh or Glasgow before joining up with the A90 towards Dundee and Aberdeen. Megabus and the National Express also run coaches to Aberdeen from major stations across the UK.

Dear Colleagues,

we would like to draw your attention to the following session of the
upcoming AGU Fall Meeting:

G16 "Mass transport and mass distribution in the Earth system" (see
description below)

Covering mass transports within and between all subsystems of the Earth
system, the session is particularly suited to link ice mass balance
results to a larger Earth system context and to communicate them to a
wider audience.

We encourage you to submit abstracts.
Abstracts are due August 8, 2012 and can be submitted at the following
web address:

Best regards,
Martin Horwath, Annette Eicker, Juergen Kusche, Tonie van Dam

G16 Session description:
Changes in continental water storage, changes of ice sheets and
glaciers, ocean circulation, sea level change and solid Earth processes
all result in re-distribution of mass. Using innovative and precise
sensor systems such as satellite gravity missions (like GRACE),
altimeters, and global GNSS networks, these changes can be observed. The
common analysis of these data improves our knowledge and understanding
of these processes in the context of climate change and geodynamics. A
particular challenge is the separation of different processes from
modeling and data inversion. This session focuses on the reporting of
new scientific results, which enhance our ability to observe or model
mass changes in the Earth System.
