The 2013 West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Workshop will be held 29 September to 2 October at the Algonkian Meeting Center in Sterling, Virginia, U.S.A.
The WAIS Workshop is an excellent, informative meeting on ice sheets and polar climate generally, incorporating glaciology, polar oceanography, marine and terrestrial geoscience, and climate study all aimed at understanding rapid ice dynamic changes and ice sheet mass balance. It is about the best forum of the year for an engaged discussion of the problems, and an outstanding deal ($200 registration covers -both- food and lodging for the meeting). It is also an opportunity to help shape the direction of polar field work, esp in Antarctica, for the next few years, at the Science Steering Committee meeting held on Sunday afternoon at the venue before the meeting begins.
We look forward to having a great meeting in the WAIS Workshop tradition (which includes hurricanes as a regular occurrence, alas!)
