To Wednesday 25 October 2017
Organizers seek abstract submissions for session T239 titled "Geophysics on Ice" to take place during the Geological Society of America (GSA) 2017 meeting, which will convene 22-25 October 2017 in Seattle, Washington.
Abstract submission deadline: 11:59 p.m. PDT on 1 August 2017.
This session will showcase recent advances in geophysical investigations of Earth's cryospheric and cyrospheric processes. Session organizers aim to bring together results from various geophysical disciplines in polar and glacier research to foster discussion and data sharing between these fields. The session will showcase recent advances in geophysical investigations of Earth's cryosphere and cyrospheric processes. Abstracts will summarize geophysical characterization of ice sheets, glaciers, ice shelves, and related environments from a range of different techniques at a variety of scales.
Geophysical investigations of Earth's cryosphere are an integral part of formulating understanding of these dynamic environments and are inherently multidisciplinary in nature. Combining results from multiple geophysical approaches, such as gravity, ground penetrating radar, seismics, and electromagnetic methods, has proven to be a productive way of understanding of a wide range of glacial and ice sheet processes including melting and ablation processes, ice dynamics, internal morphology, and monitoring the effects of climate change in polar environments.
