Reminder - Last Day 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]
Today is the last day to submit abstracts to the DACA-13 meeting
We already have received a number of great abstract for our session - Ice melt in Antarctica and Greenland and its implication for ice sheet and ice shelf stability in the 21st century and invite everyone to submit their abstract to share their research and learn about others.
The session is also open to Alpine glacier contributions
Please let me know in case anyone encounters difficulties with submitting their abstract.
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.
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.
