3rd Open Science Conference of the International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences
From Sunday 10 October 2021
To Friday 15 October 2021
Location Crans-Montana, Switzerland

3rd IPICS Open Science Conference in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, 10-15 October 2021.

Ice cores provide information about past climate and environmental conditions as well as direct records of the composition of the atmosphere on timescales from decades to hundreds of millennia. With the pioneering work of Hans Oeschger of University of Bern on carbon dioxide in polar ice cores, a long tradition of ice core research in Switzerland began. Less known is that Hans Oeschger also initiated a high-alpine drilling project on Colle Gnifetti in Switzerland in the 1970s. To acknowledge Hans Oeschger’s important contribution to these two ice core fields and to foster the link between the corresponding communities the theme of the conference is Ice Core Science at the three Poles.

Abstract submission, registration, and travel support application will be open from January 1st, 2021, on. IPICS had to be postponed and we strongly hope that we will all be able to meet in October 2021 in Crans-Montana!
