The cryosphere and its interactions with meteorology and the climate system - EMS2017

Dear all,

Abstract Submission for session "The cryosphere and its interactions  
with meteorology and the climate system (UP2.4)" at EMS 2017, Dublin  
(Ireland) will be open until
17 March, 2017.

All people working on topics related to the interactions between  
meteorology and climate
and the cyosphere are welcome.

Session details are available here:

The Conference will be held in Dublin, Ireland (12-16 Septembre 2016)
and is organized by the European Meteorological Society

14 March 2017: abstract submission with Young Scientist Travel Award  
(YSTA) or Tromp foundation travel award to young scientists (TFTAYS)
21 April 2017: abstract submission and abstract submission with waiver  

We hope to see many of you in the beautiful city of Dublin, Ireland

Best Regards

The cryosphere and its interactions with meteorology and the climate system

Convener: Renato R. Colucci
Co-Conveners: Florence Colleoni , Barbara Stenni

This session invites contributions to discuss all the aspects of the  
cryosphere interacting with the climate system, at various time scales  
and from both modelling and observational point of view and addressing  
past, present and future variability. The cryosphere represents one of  
the Earth system compartments' surface portion where links to the  
climate system are particularly strong. Mountain glaciers, ice caps,  
ice sheets, permafrost and permanent ice deposits in caves interact  
with the climate system with response time from days to millennia and  
all such components are showing signs of dramatic changes due to  
climate forcing. Ice caps and mountain glaciers represent the main  
contributors to sea level changes, and affect the hydrology of vaste  
areas in the world. Ice sheets interacting with climate cause changes  
in atmospheric and ocean circulation, sea level, albedo, vegetation  
and several related feedbacks. Permafrost feedbacks have implications  
on natural hazards especially in the geomorphology of coastal and  
mountain areas, and its feedbacks related to methane release will very  
likely have great impact in the future under climate changes.  
Permanent ice deposits in karstic caves are probably the lesser known  
as well as the smallest part of the earth’s cryosphere, but it has  
been shown recently they can store important palaeoenvironmental  
information. Understanding the precipitation in Polar Regions and the  
interaction of the snow surface with the atmosphere is crucial for  
interpreting the proxy records archived in polar ice caps. In such  
perspective, estimating the response of the current continental  
cryosphere to ongoing climate changes as well as the response of  
climate to changes in the cryosphere extent and topography relies on  
the understanding of the climate-cryosphere feedbacks and their  
evolution through time from millennial to decadal time scale. The  
combination of multiple approaches, i.e. observations, past records  
and numerical modelling, allows advancing the current knowledge of the  
feedbacks between the cryosphere and the other components of the  
climate system.
