Session description:
CL3.03/AS1.22/CR1.6/OS1.15
Polar Climate Predictability and Prediction

The Arctic sea ice cover and many other elements of the cryosphere are
experiencing significant changes over the modern observational era. The
polar climate is crucial for the Earth's energy and water budget, and
its variability and change have direct socio-economic impacts. However,
most of climate models are not yet in position to provide accurate
predictions of polar climate. This session welcomes presentations
advancing understanding of the mechanisms that control polar climate
variability on sub-seasonal to multi-decadal timescales and climate
change in both hemispheres. Submissions that examine sources of polar
climate predictability in a hierarchy of models, and link polar
processes and predictions with mid- and low-latitude climate are
encouraged. Studies using remote sensing data, field observations, proxy
data, theory and numerical models encompassing climate projections,
reanalyses and forecast systems are also encouraged. This session aims
to further connection between the atmospheric, oceanic and cryospheric
research, and operational communities. Furthermore, the session is an
opportunity to present and discuss plans for the Year of Polar
Prediction (YOPP), with its Core Phase commencing mid-2017.

Session convener: Neven-Stjepan Fuckar

2. Call for Session Abstracts
Polar Continental Margins and Fjords
2017 European Geosciences Union General Assembly
23-28 April 2017
Vienna, Austria

Organizers of a session entitled, "Polar Continental Margins and Fjords
Climate, Oceanography, Tectonics, and Geohazards" announce a call for
abstract submissions. This session will be held during the European
Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2014, which will convene 23-28
April 2017 in Vienna, Austria.

Abstract submission deadline: 13:00 Central European Time, 11 January
2017.

Session description:
CL1.23/BG9.14/CR6.3/OS2.5
Polar Continental Margins and Fjords - Climate, Oceanography, Tectonics,
and Geohazards

During the last decade significant advances in our understanding of the
development of polar continental margins during the Cenozoic have been
made. These include more detailed reconstructions of the climatic,
oceanographic, and tectonic evolution of high northern and southern
latitudes over various time scales, as well as reconstructions of past
ice-sheet dynamics and studies of marine geohazards. Results have been
obtained from conventional 2D and high-resolution 2D and 3D seismic
surveying, as well as from short sediment cores and longer drill cores.

Fjords are regarded as "small oceans" that incise high latitude
coastlines and link continental margins with the interiors of
landmasses. Fjord settings allow researchers to study a variety of
geological processes similar to those that have occurred on glaciated
continental margins, but typically at smaller scales. The contribution
of several sediment sources (e.g., glacial, fluvioglacial, fluvial,
biological) to fjord basins along with relatively high sedimentation
rates also provides the potential for high-resolution palaeoclimatic and
palaeooceanographic records on decadal to centennial timescales.

The aim of this multi-disciplinary session is to follow on from the
success of previous years by bringing together researchers working on
northern and southern high-latitude continental margins and fjords,
investigating the dynamics of past ice sheets, climate, tectonics,
sedimentary processes, physical oceanography, and palaeo-biology/ecology.

Invited speakers:
- Karsten Gohl, Johann Klages, Claus-Dieter Hillenbrand, Gerhard Kuhn,
Tim Freudenthal and the Expedition PS104 Science Party - "MeBo Seabed
Drilling Operation in the Amundsen Sea Embayment and Early Results on
West Antarctic Ice Sheet Dynamics."
- Miquel Canals, University of Barcelona - "The Atlas of Submarine
Glacial landforms: Modern, Quaternary and Ancient."
