Past Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics (PAIS)

Venue: Room 305, 3F Songdo Convensia (see attached map).

We invite you to attend a two-day PAIS-PRAMSO-AISSL workshop at ISAES. During the first day (July20) we will update the community on PAIS activities and run an open PRAMSO session to present latest ideas for circum-Antarctic scientific drilling projects and discuss technological advances indrilling and site survey capability. We will round out the day with a short workshop where you areinvited to help develop the new Antarctic Ice Sheet and Sea Level (AISSL) strategic researchprogramme. Focused drilling project workshops will be held during day two (July 21). Theseworkshops will allow project teams to develop drilling proposals.A draft implementation plan is being developed for ASSIL which will be submitted to SCAR-EXCOM,six weeks before they meet in Bulgaria immediately after ISAES. Tim Naish and the AISSL ProgrammePlanning Group have started working on the proposal. The AISSL workshop at ISAES offers a chancefor the community to review the draft plan and provide input prior to the SCAR EXCOM meeting thefollowing week. So, come along and contribute to our future plan.
