This meeting will focus on developing a better understanding of the physical processes that drive ice sheet collapse and solid earth deformation. These processes are highly uncertain due to a lack of observational constraints, yet they are the dominant drivers for local sea level change. Overcoming this uncertainty requires drawing from observations and expertise from a variety of fields complementary to PALSEA and SERCE including rheology, hydrology, glaciology, and geodesy. In this meeting, we aim to bring empiricists and modelers from the sea level and ice sheet communities together in order to unify solid Earth deformation and ice sheet evolution across time and spatial scales. Pairing our improved understanding of physical processes with enhanced paleo datasets will allow us to narrow in on ice sheet contributions to past and future sea level rise.
The meeting will be hybrid and in-person participation is encouraged for those who can, but an online participation option through zoom is available. Abstract selection and a full agenda will be announced on August 1st. We will do our best to accommodate different time zones for those who wish to present remotely.
The deadline for registration and abstract submission is 15 July 2021.
Full details on the meeting can be found on the PALSEA website.
