The FRISP - Forum for Research into Ice Shelf Processes - is an opportunity for scientists working on ice shelf processes to meet in an informal setting and exchanging ideas, results and field plans. Since 2016 FRISP is also confirmed as an Expert Group under the SCAR Physical Sciences Group to focus on the glaciological, oceanic and atmospheric processes governing the behavior of ice shelves that are key to the ice sheet contribution to sea level change:

Feel free to spread the word and looking forward to see you in Bergen!

Best wishes from this year's FRISP organizing committee
