Past and present changes in the mass balance of the Earth's glaciers and ice caps induce present-day deformation of the solid Earth on a range of spatial scales, from the very local to global. Of principal interest are geodetic observations that validate, or may be assimilated into, models of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) and/or constrain models of present-day ice mass change through measurements of elastic rebound. Using geometric measurements alone, elastic and viscoelastic deformations cannot be separated without additional models or observations. The conference will focus on resolving these issues and work on dissemination of these measurements within the glaciological community.
- Session 1. Observations of present-day changes in glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets and the associated Earth deformation
- Session 2. Measurement and Models of Elastic Rebound
- Session 3. Glacial isostatic adjustment on a Heterogeneous Earth
- Session 4. Reconciling models and observations of GIA
Both Oral and Poster sessions will be held.
