Online workshop on ice-ocean interaction

We invite you to join an online workshop on ice-ocean interactions 17-19th October 2022. The workshop is organised by the Joint IAPSO/IACS Commission on Ice-Ocean Interactions (JCIOI), and aims to draw together researchers interested in the processes that govern ocean-driven melt of glaciers and ice sheets. We hope that this meeting will draw together the community, sharing knowledge across different research areas, and identifying critical knowledge gaps. The workshop will address four key science themes:

1. The physics of the ice-ocean boundary

2. The role of glacial melt in the wider ocean

3. The impact of ocean-driven melt on glacier and ice sheet mass balance

4. New and emerging technologies for studying ice-ocean interaction

The workshop will be entirely online, with a format primarily consisting of keynote presentations, followed by an open breakout session to discuss priority research questions and strategies for addressing existing gaps and limitations. There will also be a limited number of short presentations allowing participants to present their own work, with priority given to students and early career researchers. Sessions are spread over a broad schedule to facilitate interactions across time zones, including three virtual “coffee” sessions to facilitate networking.

The meeting is open to any interested participants, and we particularly encourage involvement from students and early career researchers. Registration is free, and will remain open until 7th October:

Further details and a full meeting schedule are available in the attached circular, or on the JCIOI website:

We hope you can join us! Best wishes,

JCIOI committee
