IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology
  • Glaciology
  • Arctic
  • Committee / Working Group / Expert Group / Action Group
  • Scientific Network
The objective of the Network is to facilitate research on the dynamics and mass budget of Arctic glaciers. The Network wants to make a significant contribution to assessments on the impact of climate change in the Arctic region. The focus is on the effect of glaciers on sea-level change and on the fresh water input into fjords and embayments. In some parts of the Arctic (e.g. Iceland), rapidly changing glaciers may affect shipping and infrastructure. The Network aims to study such glaciers and to increase our understanding of the mechanisms behind rapid change. The Network also wants to stimulate collaboration between glaciologists and climate modellers.
