The Geophysics of the Cryosphere and Glacial Products: Properties, Processes and Technical Advances

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 9 February 2012 to 10 February 2012

Where: London, United Kingdom


This meeting is sponsored by the British Geophysical Association/Royal Astronomical Society as the New Advances in Geophysics Meeting 2012.

Applied geophysics, together with more fundamental theoretical and forward and inverse modelling advances, has played a major role in the exploration of the world’s ice masses and their geological settings and sedimentological legacies for more than half a century. Geophysical techniques have also proven to be highly suited for the characterisation of the properties of and processes within permafrost and seasonally frozen ground, as well as those within snow and other frozen materials. Geophysical exploration, often qualitatively or quantitatively integrated with other geoscientific methods and findings, has thus resulted in many exciting discoveries and case studies.

We cordially invite contributions from all areas of geophysics and associated disciplines as applied or relevant to present-day ice masses, ice cores, frozen ground or snow. Likewise, we are keen to receive contributions on the application of geophysical and associated techniques to glacial materials and products to reconstruct past ice masses, dynamics, and hydrology.
