IGS International Symposium on Radioglaciology

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 9 September 2013 to 13 September 2013

Where: Lawrence, Kansas

More information: 


The symposium will cover recent measurements and signal processing advances that are leading to new discoveries. It will also examine the observational needs of the next-generation ice sheet models, and how radioglaciology can support modeling requirements.

The overarching purpose of this meeting is to discuss the latest technical improvements in radars and signal-processing techniques for polar research, to present recent measurements, and to report on analyses and interpretations of recent observations. Additionally, the meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss observational requirements for radars that will most benefit and support development and validation of next-generation ice-sheet models.

The symposium will consist of a mixture of oral and poster sessions, with free time planned to allow participants to exchange scientific information in an informal setting. The symposium features two local excursions: either a visit to a working ranch or the world-class Nelson Museum of Art. Haskell Indian Nations University dance troupe will perform during a dinner buffet and a symposium banquet will be held.

We would welcome your participation and encourage you to submit a paper to the symposium.
