Summary

Registration and abstract submission is now open for a workshop on Glacial Isostatic Adjustment, Ice Sheets, and Sea-level Change – Observations, Analysis, and Modelling.

Conveners: Thomas James, Natalya Gomez, Matt King, Shawn Marshall, Glenn Milne, and Pippa Whitehouse.

The workshop will emphasize recent developments in GIA and ice sheet modelling:

  • Coupled ice-sheet/GIA models to explore interactions, including those that may accelerate or impede rapid delivery of ice to the oceans.
    • GIA modelling with complex Earth models that may incorporate lateral heterogeneity (i.e., three-dimensional Earth models) and non-linear rheologies.

We also seek contributions on:

  • Observations constraining ice sheet history and refinements or syntheses of paleo-sea-level histories.
  • Glacial isostatic adjustment modeling to explain aspects of the paleo record (ice-sheet extent, sea-level history) and present-day measured crustal motion and gravitational changes.
  • Geophysical and geodetic constraints on Earth structure and mantle rheology beneath present-day and ancient ice sheets.
  • Ice sheet and glacier measurements and modelling of past, present, and future extent and volume.

Registration is free, but we need to know your name and contact information. Please register at the link above.

Registration will be first come, first served, and will end when we reach capacity, or on April 30, 2019.

Submit your abstract here: GIA Workshop Abstract Submission

Attendees may submit more than one abstract. The preference is for oral presentations, but limited poster space will be available. Notification of acceptance of abstracts will be provided by email after abstract submission is closed on April 30.
