NSF planning workshop on land-ice contributions to future sea level
A four-day workshop will be convened July 11-14, 2010, in Sterling, VA, to develop a Science and Implementation Plan on Land-Ice Contributions to Future Sea Level. This plan will frame tractable science questions and prioritize measurement and research strategies intended to guide future sponsored research by the National Science Foundation and possibly other agencies focused on the most direct path to address this issue and provide actionable information for decision makers. We invite members of the research community who are interested in participating in the workshop to submit a one-page statement of interest explaining their background and how it fits within the context of the workshop goals. For the workshop to be successful, the participating scientists must be able to recognize and acknowledge the relevant contributions of other communities to the specific goal of projecting future sea-level rise.
In addition, balance in stage of career, gender and race will be considered in the selection process, as will the potential to provide new perspectives. To include the youngest perspectives, we encourage graduate students and post-docs to submit documentation to be considered for one of the six spots reserved for them to participate in the workshop. All travel costs will be covered for U.S. participants.
Please submit your statement of interest and a 2-page NSF-style C.V. to Peter Clark, Department of Geosciences, Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331 ([hidden email] <mailto:[hidden email]>) by May 15, 2010.
