The annual international user meeting for the ice-flow model Úa will this year be held at Northumbria University, Newcastle, from 11-15 July, 2022.
The meeting will be held in person.
There is no course fee. The meeting is suitable for both new and experienced users.
Úa is a finite-element ice-flow model. It is easy to use, robust, and an ideal tool to solve flow of ice sheets, ice shelves and alpine glaciers, and for ice-flow problems involving grounding line migration (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO8NHJqmgg_bwJx0xKJDwcA). To run the model a local MATLAB installation is required.
As in previous years, there will be an introduction to the use of model and presentations by current users in the mornings. The afternoons can be used to set up and run models, and participants are encouraged to work on their own modelling problems.
Exact schedule will be sent close to the meeting, but we expect first two mornings (Monday and Tuesday) to be primarily aimed and new users, and Wednesday and Thursday mornings mainly involving presentations of ‘user success stories’.
Further details about the program will be sent to participants closer to the date of the meeting.
