Summary

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of California at Irvine will host the 2016 Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM) Workshop. It will be sponsored by Pr Helen Fricker who graciously offered to host the workshop.

Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since the 2014 workshop, including user-requested features will be presented. Specific focus will be on tutorials that allow users to make use of altimetry data, and simulate the evolution of surface topography on ice shelves or over grounded ice. Data assimilation will also be at the core of several tutorials, relying on the use of inverse methods in particular. Participants will be invited to showcase their work during an open poster session, and science talks will be organized around relevant topics.
