We welcome presentations on all aspects of ice shelf research, including, but not limited to:

  • formation, flow and disintegration of ice shelves;
  • response of ice shelves and tidewater glaciers to past, present and future climate variability;
  • surface and basal mass balance of ice shelves;
  • ice-ocean interaction at the calving front of ice shelves and tidewater glaciers;
  • mass transport across the grounding line;
    - ocean circulation and water mass transformation beneath ice shelves and within pro-glacial fjords;
  •  impact of ice shelves on the global ocean;
    - processes controlling the delivery of ocean heat to glaciated coastlines;
    - climate records from on or near current or former ice shelves;
    - iceberg calving, drift, melting, and decay

Further details of the meeting, eventually including instructions for on-line registration will follow in due course (all information will be on the local website http://rechenknecht.natgeo.su.se/FRISP2012).
