Registration deadline: Workshop on observing and modelling meltwater retention processes on ice sheets and glaciers

When: 8 April 2016

Where: Online

Summary

Location:
Copenhagen, Denmark

Purpose:

  • Present and discuss results on observations and modelling of meltwater retention processes on ice sheets and glaciers, with some emphasis on low temperature 'polar snow'.
  • To plan and coordinate meltwater retention model development.
  • To develop future projects and collaboration.

Registration deadline is Friday 8 April, 2016.

Contributions are welcomed in the form of oral presentations and/or posters. Presentation duration will be 15-20 minutes, including discussion. A keynote presentation by W.T. Pfeffer is planned. Between 2.5 and 3 days are planned.

Abstracts and registration:
Those intending to attend the workshop should submit abstracts (maximum length 200 words) by email to Robert Fausto rsf [at] geus.dk no later than the registration deadline. Abstracts should indicate whether an oral or poster presentation is preferred.

We have some financial support, but may ask a modest registration fee. We plan for the workshop to include lunch, morning and afternoon coffee breaks. We are working to raise some financial support for early career scientists to participate in the workshop.

We plan a special issue on the workshop topic in either Annals of glaciology, The Cryosphere, Frontiers in Earth Sciences.

A range of hotels and hostels exist near the workshop location. Public transit is very efficient, including bike rental. Booking these early is recommended due to extra demand from the high tourist season.
