Understanding the evolution of high-latitude ice sheets and glaciers, and producing predictions of future change, requires a longer-term perspective than can be provided by geodetic data alone. This session aims to improve our understanding
of how and why high-latitude glaciers and ice sheets change, with a focus on the use of innovative methods and new data to reconstruct past glacier and ice sheet histories over decadal to millennial timescales. This multi-disciplinary session seeks contributions
from across the palaeo-environmental (including sea level), geological, instrumental, ice sheet and glacio-isostatic adjustment modelling communities. Contributions that integrate instrumental, geological and modelling techniques are particularly encouraged.
In general, we welcome studies that focus on combining onshore and offshore records, different types of proxy data, a range of geodetic techniques, and/or innovative modelling approaches to enhance our understanding of past glacier and ice sheet evolution,
and therefore better predict future changes in the high latitudes.
