this is an advert for the “Deformation and flow of ice”
[CR5.6/TS3.8] session to be held at the
EGU General Assembly 2018, 8. - 18. April in Vienna.
The session focuses on the deformation and flow of ice and
invites contributions from the field, laboratory and from
modeling, aimed to advance our understanding of (i) the different
modes of deformation, (ii) how ice flow properties are influenced
by parameters such as (but not limited to) fabric, texture, solute
and particle impurities and water availability, (iii) the
formation of structures such as folds, fractures and shear zones,
and (vi) how ice flow properties contribute to the large scale
dynamics in polar ice sheets, mountain glaciers, sea ice and
The session is hosted by the Cryosphere (CR) but is
co-organized with the Tectonics (TS) devision, as we wish to
encourage the interdisciplinary exchange between the glaciology-,
geology- and rock deformation communities.
Looking forward to receiving your abstracts and hopefully see
many of you next year in Vienna.
