cryospheric changes and low latitude circulation systems at IUGG Melborne

Georg Kaser
Dear colleagues,

at the IUGG General Assembly in Melbourne, June 28 to July 7, the  
International Association of Cryospheric Sciences, IACS, organises and  
co-organises several symposia:

Among others, IACS participates also in the IAMAS lead Symposium  
J-M10: Monsoons, Tropical Cyclones and Tropical Dynamics.

The state of lower latitude mountain glaciers, but also the extent of  
high mountain snow cover and permafrost strongly depend on a variety  
of tropical circulation patterns and modes and their variability  
(ENSO, Monsoon, Walker, Headley). In turn, the history of glacier  
mass, area, and length changes is increasingly recognised as a  
potential source of information about past circulation variability and  
changes. We invite those of you that look at cryospheric changes in  
connection with low latitude atmospheric circulation patterns to  
contribute to this challenging event and to meet with atmospheric and  
ocean scientists by submitting their abstracts to J-M10:  
http://www.iugg2011.com/program-abstracts.asp .

Abstract submission deadline is February 1, 2011.

When registering, please make sure you tick IACS as your affiliation.

Looking forward to see you in Melbourne,
Georg Kaser
