Scientific Programme

The full program with detailed information about the scientific session will be announced in May. Key focus areas include (but are not limited to): 

  • Ice sheets and ice shelves: observations and modelling of ice dynamics, basal and surface mass balance, with reference to past, present-day and/or future change 
  • Mountain glaciers and ice caps: advances in numerical simulations of glacier mass balance at local to global scales, new datasets for validation and calibration, and numerical assessments of cryospheric hazards 
  • Snow and firn processes: advances in numerical simulations and integration with novel observational datasets of firn processes, snow cover, snowpack properties and interactions with the climate system 
  • Permafrost: initialization and validation of thermal models, advances in the coupling to land surface schemes and GCMs 
  • Sea ice: advances in sea-ice physics and models, novel datasets and integration with coupled Earth-System models 
  • Cryosphere–climate interactions: feedbacks, attribution, tipping points 
  • Advances in data-driven model initialization and calibration: machine learning, emulators, uncertainty quantification 
  • Model verification and model intercomparisons: benchmark datasets, including lab measurements, and analytical approaches 
  • Future perspectives: the impact of model initialization, data gaps, data errors, under-constrained or missing physics
