Solid Earth Response and influence on Cryospheric Evolution (SERCE)

A discussion and planning forum for scientists interested in the interdisciplinary objectives of the SCAR-SERCE research programme, which address the fundamental interactions between the Antarctic ice sheet and the underlying Antarctic crust and mantle, with the overarching goal to advance understanding of the interactions between the solid earth and the cryosphere, to better constrain ice mass balance and sea level change in a warming world.

During this forum, emphasis will be on potential future internationally coordinated activities that can be facilitated by SERCE, including:

  1. an internationally coordinated measurement network (continuation of POLENET)
  2. improving data exchange to facilitate pan-antarctic analyses
  3. data products needed for interdisciplinary science activities, such as:
    1. Seismic models (crustal thickness, lithosphere thickness, mantle shear wave velocity/density/viscosity models) in forms useful for geodynamic modeling
    2. Surface & ice sheet mass balance estimates in a form appropriate for elastic rebound modeling
    3. Crustal motion velocities in formats needed for geodynamic modeling
    4. Gravity models
    5. Ice Sheet loading models over millennial timescales for visco-elastic GIA
