Event Type:

When: 
25 July 2013 to 27 July 2013
Where: 
Beijing, China

Ice in the polar region, including ice sheet, ice shelves and sea ice are in constant motions, which are closely related to global change. Sea-level rise (SLR) is one of the consequences result from of global change. Recent study on SLR budget indicate that the contribution from land ice has increased by ~60% in the past decade. This workshop on ice in motion will take place right before the Beijing 2013 IGS symposium and will concentrate on the recent advance in remote sensing and observation of the cryosphere, especially the ice. Over 10 invited talks will be given by internationally known scientists, including Prof. Robert Bindschadler, Ted Scambos, Christina Hulbe, Regine Hock, Weili Wang, Yuansheng Li, Bo Sun, and Rongxing Li, et al.

The workshop is organized by the College of Global Change and Earth System Science (GCESS), Beijing Normal University (BNU) and the State key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science (SLRSS).
