IGS seminar 25, 4th Nov, 3 ECS, Melissa Diaz, Ben Davison, Rebecca Schlegel

Murray T.

International Glaciological Society Global Seminar Series 2020 #25

WEDNESDAY Nov 4th Three shorter talks from Early Career Scientists


Melissa Diaz, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, “Change at 85 Degrees South: Shackleton Glacier Region Proglacial Lakes from 1960 to 2020”

Ben Davison, University of St. Andrews, “Iceberg melting substantially modifies oceanic heat flux towards a major Greenlandic tidewater glacier”

Rebecca Schlegel, Swansea University, “Rapid subglacial erosion and bed properties under the Rutford Ice Stream"


Please double check the time of the seminar in your timezone c.f. London 9pm! Lots of us have changed our clocks (or not)… I think for US is now back to usual time again…


Also, we’ve had a request for some glacio-geochemistry…. Any volunteers out there? 😊


You need to register in advance for the seminars, but your registration should last for several seminars. If it was a while ago that you registered - check your link still works and drop me an email if it doesn't. There's a short question to answer - please tell me enough to accept you! I'll be doing that manually, so just be kind and make it obvious (even if I met you once at AGU)… (something like: I'm a PhD student with X... or whatever). Using your official university email address would make my life particularly easy!


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the seminar. If you attended this week you use the same link next week and don't need to re-register.
