Side Meeting on solid Earth-cryosphere interactions at POLAR 18 conference
As you register to attend
the POLAR 18 conference organised by SCAR in Davos this June, please consider signing up to attend the SERCE ('Solid Earth Response and influence on Cryospheric
Evolution') side meeting, which will take place immediately prior to the main conference.
The role of SERCE is to facilitate
research on interactions between the solid Earth and the cryosphere (https://www.scar.org/science/serce/serce/). Our side meeting is open
to all and will be relevant to anyone interested in the solid Earth (if you're attending POLAR 18 then we assume you are also interested in the cryosphere...).
During the meeting we will report on recent activities supported by SERCE (including a report from the Antarctic Heat Flux that is taking place this week), outline and discuss plans for future SERCE-supported activities,
update on recent research that addresses the scientific aims of SERCE, and invite discussion of plans for the future direction of SCAR's Scientific Research Programs (of which SERCE is currently one, others listed here: https://www.scar.org/science/srp/).
Details of POLAR 18 side meetings are listed here:
Registration for the SERCE side meeting is free; sign up when you register for the main conference.
The SERCE side meeting will take place 2-4pm, in room A Sertig, on Sunday 17th June.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to suggest points for discussion during the meeting. In particular, we have recently appointed an Early Career Researcher rep (cc'd), so please get in touch
with her if there are ECR-facing activities or issues that you would like us to discuss.
