Coupled modelling in the polar regions - Call for abstracts at vEGU21

HAUBNER  Konstanze

Dear Colleagues,


We would like to draw your attention to a cryosphere focussed coupling session at vEGU21 (19-30 April, virtually):

Coupled modelling in the polar regions (CR 7.2)


…where our invited speaker Xylar Asay-Davis will be presenting MISOMIP1 findings.


Please consider submitting an abstract as well if you are working on studies with topics like:

- Coupled systems of ideal setups or the real world

- Interface development, maintenance, and workflows

- Feedbacks of coupled models

- Comparisons of online- and offline-coupled models

- ...


The abstract submission deadline is 13 January 2021, 13:00 CET.


You find the abstract below and can submit your abstract here:

This session, like all sessions, will apply the virtual PICO (vPICO) format. (more information:


We hope to see you at our session,

Konstanze Haubner, Rupert Gladstone, Shuting Yang and Yoshihiro Nakayama



Abstract: CR 7.2 Coupled modelling in the polar regions

  In recent decades, the climate in the polar regions has undergone dramatic changes. Quantifying the individual contributions of Earth system components (cryosphere, ocean, atmosphere, and land) to the observed changes is challenging due to feedback between the components. Examples include (but are not limited to) ice shelf – ocean interactions (through basal melting and cavity geometry evolution) and elevation feedback (through surface mass balance). Hence, studies based on individual components of the Earth System have limited capacity to represent all relevant processes. This session aims to provide a platform for sharing coupled modelling experiences incorporating the cryosphere in the polar regions.

  Before obtaining scientific outcomes, design decisions must be made in the development of coupled models. Adopting existing coupling technologies or implementing new, concurrent or sequential parallelism, bringing component source codes together or maintaining independence, choosing the level of temporal synchronicity between components operating on different timescales, are all examples of choices to be made.

  We solicit both technical and scientific contributions from modelling studies in which feedback and emergent properties between the cryosphere and other Earth System components in polar regions are investigated, better understood, and possibly even quantified. In addition to application of coupled modelling to real world domains, contributions are also invited from idealised studies and intercomparisons, such as the Marine Ice Sheet – Ocean Intercomparison Project (MISOMIP).
