Workshop for UK Scientists: observations of 20th/21st Century changes in Antarctic Peninsula glaciers

COOK A.J. (577453)

Workshop for UK scientists: observations of 20th/21st Century changes in Antarctic Peninsula glaciers
=====================================================================================================
Location: BAS, Cambridge, UK
Date: Friday September 9th, 2011, immediately following the IGS British Branch Meeting (http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/about_bas/events/igs2011/index.php)

UK scientists working on observations of changes in volume/mass/extent of Antarctic Peninsula glaciers over the 20th and 21st Centuries are invited to a 1-day workshop to follow after the IGS British Branch Meeting in September, 2011. Our purpose is to present and discuss results and future funded work, so to avoid overlap of effort and maximise collaboration. In particular, we will focus on surface elevation changes using radar altimetry, laser altimetry and photogrammetry; velocity changes using feature tracking and satellite radar interferometry; glacier retreat from imagery; and indirect measurements of mass change, such as from GPS measurements of elastic uplift, GRACE or other techniques, including new and potential datasets relevant to the problem. The focus of the workshop is not on modelling.


We plan for the workshop to be small in size with a limit of 15-20 people - all who are working on observations of present or recent glacier changes in the Antarctic Peninsula.

If you would like to attend, please email Alison Cook [hidden email] with a talk title.

Matt King, Alison Cook and Nick Barrand
