The FRISP meeting is for scientists working on ice shelf processes meeting in an informal setting and exchanging ideas, results and field plans. 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

Registration opens on March 1st, 2017.
