The Workshop on the Dynamics and Mass Budget of Arctic Glaciers & the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting will host a cross-cutting activity of the Marine and Cryosphere working groups of IASC: “The importance of Arctic glaciers for the Arctic marine ecosystem”.
The purpose of the meeting is:
- Present and discuss new results on observations and modeling of the dynamics and mass budget of Arctic glaciers, including the Greenland ice sheet.
- Provide a forum for glaciologists to present and discuss their work and to stimulate future collaborations.
- Plan and coordinate field work with the aim of using available infrastructure and logistics in the most efficient way.
Participation is open to everyone interested in Arctic glaciology and proglacial marine ecosystems. The cross-cutting activity aims at bringing together people from glaciology, marine ecology and oceanography.
