Workshop on Subglacial and Englacial Hydrology and Geology
Event Type: Conferences and Workshops
When: 17 October 2023 to 19 October 2023
Where: Tarraleah, Tasmania, Australia
Save the date: Organizers are planning a workshop on subglacial and englacial hydrology and geology in Tarraleah, Tasmania, from 17-19 October 2023. It will be three full days of presentations, discussions, and short field trips to look at subglacial and periglacial landforms in a Gondwana setting.
Tarraleah is a small settlement in the secluded Tasmanian highlands, about one and a half hours from Hobart. It was established for construction of hydroelectric power infrastructure, and on-site are penstocks and canals that the organizers hope will inspire the envision of water channelling under and through the ice sheet and glaciers.
Full board accommodation and local transport will be provided; organizers are presently looking at the details in order to offer a comfortable stay while keeping participation affordable for everyone, including support for students. The organizers also welcome interstate and international participants wishing to stay a bit longer and visit the University of Tasmania in connection to the workshop—details about those arrangements to come.
More information and registration is to be posted soon.
