vEGU2021: CR1.4 Glaciers and Ice Caps under Climate Change

Matthias Huss
Dear Cryolisters,

Glaciers and Ice Caps around the Earth are changing rapidly in response
to ongoing atmospheric warming. The session “CR1.4 Glaciers and Ice Caps
under Climate Change” brings together glaciological research ranging
from direct and remote observations to numerical models and enhanced
process understanding.

Please consider submitting your abstract to session CR1.4 by January
13th 13.00 CET:

We are looking forward to an interesting and diverse session and
fruitful discussions!

Glaciers and Ice Caps under Climate Change
Glaciers and ice caps are major contributors to sea-level rise and have
large impacts on runoff from glacierized basins. Major mass losses of
glaciers and ice caps have been reported around the globe for the recent
decades. This is a general session on glaciers outside the Greenland and
Antarctic ice sheets, emphasizing their past, present and future
responses to climate change. Although much progress in understanding the
link between glaciers and climate and the impacts of their wastage on
various systems has recently been achieved, many substantial unknowns
remain. It is necessary to acquire more direct observations, both
applying novel measurement technologies and releasing unpublished data
from previous years, as well as combining in situ observations with new
remote sensing products and modelling. In order to improve our
understanding of the processes behind the observed glacier changes, the
application of models of different complexity in combination with new
data sets is crucial. We welcome contributions on all aspects of glacier
changes – current, past and future – based on field observations, remote
sensing and modelling. Studies on the physical processes controlling all
components of glacier mass balance are especially encouraged, as well as
assessments of the impact of retreating glaciers and ice caps on
sea-level rise, runoff and other downstream systems.
