Reminder - DACA-13 session - Ice melt in Antarctica and Greenland and its implication for ice sheet and ice shelf stability in the 21st century [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Stefan Vogel-2

Dear Colleagues

 

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to our Session- Ice melt in Antarctica and Greenland and its implication for ice sheet and ice shelf stability in the 21st century

And a quick reminder for the abstract submission deadline for DACA-13  is approaching rapidly

Deadline for submissions is January 31, 2012

 

The Conference Davos Atmosphere and Cryosphere Assembly DACA-13 will be held July 8-12, 2013 in Davis Switzerland

Following the Theme of the DACA - Air, Ice & Process Interactions our Session is concerned with ice atmosphere interactions focusing on surface melting on both the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheet and its impact on ice flow, ice shelf stability and the evolution of ice sheet discharge to the ocean as a consequence of 21st century warming.

We especially invite presentations of work regarding to ice sheet/glacier surface energy/mass balance, ice sheet/glacier boundary conditions and mechanisms impacting glacier flow, ice sheets/shelf stability and work which may challenge the paradigm of East Antarctic being Cold and Stable.

 

Full session abstract attached below or  http://www.daca-13.org/wsl/daca13/program/SympA6/A6.3_EN

 

Looking forward to all the great abstracts and hope to see you in Switzerland

 

Stefan & Petra

 

 

Ice melt in Antarctica and Greenland and its implication for ice sheet and ice shelf stability in the 21st century

http://www.daca-13.org/wsl/daca13/program/SympA6/A6.3_EN

The Greenland Ice Sheet is experiencing significant surface melting. Surface melting is directly and indirectly contributing to the global sea-level rise, through the melt water flux to the ocean as well as lubrication of outlet glaciers and subsequent increased ice flux to the ocean. In Antarctica - the Antarctic Peninsula has experienced significant warming and ice melt, and ponding of melt water contributed to the collapse of the Larsen B Ice Shelf. Almost 10 years after the collapse outlet glaciers are still experiencing thinning and mass loss. On the other hand East Antarctic is generally thought to be cold and stable.

 

 

The session solicits contributions on past, present and future surface mass balance of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, ice-atmosphere interaction processes and the effect on ice sheet/ice shelf stability in the 21st century. Topics may include but are not limited to ice sheet/glacier surface energy/mass balance, ice sheet/glacier boundary conditions and mechanisms impacting glacier flow, ice sheets/shelf stability and may challenge the paradigm of East Antarctic being Cold and Stable.
