Further details of the meeting, venue and accommodation, including instructions for on-line registration will follow in due course.

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

  • formation, flow and disintegration of ice shelves and tidewater glaciers;
  • 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.
