IUGG 2019 session: Advances in glacier and ice cap modelling
We cordially invite you to contribute to the following session at
the 27th IUGG General Assembly (July 8-18 2019, Montreal, Canada):
C03 - Advances in glacier and ice cap modelling. Convened by
Daniel Farinotti, Mathieu Morlighem and Harry Zekollari
Mountain glaciers and ice caps are important freshwater
resources for many regions, contribute significantly to
present-day sea level rise, and can be a significant source of
hazard. Models are needed to project future glacier changes and
associated impacts and also to help understanding past changes.
This symposium focuses on all aspects of modelling mountain
glaciers other than the ice sheets, including but not limited
to, the following topics:
Coupling of glacier mass balance models with ice flow
Integration of physical processes, such as subglacial
drainage or glacier calving, in existing models;
Inverse modelling of subsurface characteristics;
Inference of glacier ice thickness from surface
Studies on all spatial and temporal scales, including future
projections are solicited with particular emphasis on a
regional-scale studies and high-mountain environments.
We are also very happy to announce our two invited speakers for
this session: Fabien Maussion (University of Innsbruck) and Doug
Brinkerhoff (University of Montana).
