POLAR18 session on ice sheets, solid Earth and sea level
Please consider submitting an abstract to our session at POLAR18 in Davos, Switzerland 19-23rd June 2018.
Session Number CR-5
Interactions between ice mass balance, the solid Earth, and sea-level changes
This session explores improvements in our understanding and quantification of past, present and future ice sheet and sea-level changes, by focusing on ice sheet evolution and
glacial isostatic adjustment. We invite contributions that relate to observations of global and regional sea-level changes, ice sheet mass changes and/or deformation of the solid Earth, as well as modeling of ice sheet dynamics, surface mass balance, basal
hydrology, and glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA), in both the Arctic and Antarctic.
Conveners: Catherine Ritz (LGGE), Nicolas Champollion, (ISSI), Thomas James, (Natural Resources Canada), Sarah Woodroffe, (Durham University), Xavier Fettweis, (University
of Liege), Matt King, (University of Tasmania).
