To Friday 15 September 2017
Abstract submission deadline is 10 May 2017 for the next SCAR/Past Antarctic Ice Sheet (PAIS) conference that will be held in Trieste, Italy from 10-15 September 2017.
This is an international conference organized by OGS in collaboration with the University of Trieste, the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ITCP), The World Academy of Science (TWAS), CNR-ISMAR and supported by SCAR, Univ. of Victoria and also by PNRA, IUGG-IACS and IUGG-IAPSO.
The aim of the conference is to present recent results that address still open questions in understanding the sensitivity of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and its contribution to past and future sea level and climate change (Kennicutt M.C., Chown S., et al., Nature, 2014).
An important development in understanding and predicting Antarctic ice-sheet behaviour has been the validation and testing of ice sheet models on past climates with boundary conditions that are relevant to future projections.
While the focus of the conference will be on the latest developments in paleo-ice sheet and climate reconstructions using data and models, we also invite researchers and students from geodynamical, climatological, glaciological, oceanographic, ecosystem and ice cores communities, since their work is crucial for understanding the processes and dynamics of the integrated system.
