Liestøl Symposium: Integrating field measurements, remote sensing, and models of Svalbard glacier mass balance
The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers from international groups studying Svalbard glacier mass balance. We seek to 1) promote better collaboration and cooperation between these groups, and 2) integrate the field studies
with glacier and regional climate modelling efforts.
The workshop is named in honor of the pioneering Norwegian glaciologist Olav Liestøl (1916-2002), who initiated mass balance measurements in Svalbard in the 1950s.
