vEGU 2021: CL1.7 The state-of-the-art in ice coring sciences (StatICS)

Eichler Anja (PSI)
Dear all

The deadline for the EGU 2021 is approaching soon (Wednesday 13 January).

The EGU General Assembly 2021 will be held online between 19 and 30 April 2021: https://egu21.eu/about/provisional_format_of_egu21.html

Please consider submitting an abstract for the following session:

CL1.7 The state-of-the-art in ice coring sciences (StatICS) at EGU 2021
Conveners: Thomas Blunier, Anja Eichler, Vasileios Gkinis, Rachael Rhodes

The half-century since the first deep ice core drilling at Camp Century, Greenland, has seen extensive innovation in methods of ice sample extraction, analysis and interpretation. Ice core sciences include isotopic diffusion analysis, multiple-isotope systematics, trace gases and their isotopic compositions, ice structure and physical properties, high-resolution analysis of major and trace impurities, and studies of DNA in ice, among many others. Several projects (e.g. Beyond EPICA Oldest Ice) are to surface ice as old as 1.5 million years old from very compressed layers at the very bottom of the Antarctic ice sheet in the coming years. Analysis and interpretation of this ice will bring new challenges, including the potential for in situ processes to impact the climatic signals. Furthermore, a variety of ice cores have been drilled recently in the framework of the ICE MEMORY initiative to preserve environmental and climate information from glaciers threatened by climate change.
This session welcomes all contributions reporting the state-of-the-art in ice coring sciences, including drilling and processing, dating, analytical techniques, results and interpretations of ice core records from polar ice sheets and mid- and low-latitude glaciers, remote and autonomous methods of surveying ice stratigraphy, and related modelling research.

Full details and abstract submission for this session are here:  https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU21/session/40676

with a deadline of Wednesday 13 January, 13:00 CET.

We hope to see you soon!

Best regards,
Thomas Blunier, Anja Eichler, Vasileios Gkinis, Rachael Rhodes
