Solid Earth Response and influence on Cryospheric Evolution (SERCE)

S8. Solid earth responses and influences on cryospheric evolution

Conveved by: Thomas James, Terry Wilson, Joachim Jacobs and Kristin Poinar

The polar regions are unique geodynamic environments where the solid earth, the cryosphere, the oceans, the atmosphere and the global climate system are intimately linked. This SERCE session will explore new data and modeling studies bearing on any aspect of the interaction between the solid earth and ice sheets. Topics are expected to include crust and mantle structure beneath the ice sheets, mapping of earth properties and their variations through seismological and other geophysical techniques, observations of solid earth deformation and feedbacks between solid earth deformation and ice sheet dynamics, new data and models for ice histories driving glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) in Antarctica, incorporation of geological, geodetic and geophysical measurements into geodynamic modeling of the solid earth response to ice mass changes, and the assimilation of ground-based measurements with data from current space missions. Contributions addressing solid earth – cryosphere interactions at both poles are encouraged.
