• formation, flow and disintegration of ice shelves and tidewater glaciers
• response of ice shelves and tidewater glaciers to past, present and future climate variability
• surface and basal mass balance of ice shelves
• ice-ocean interaction at the calving front of ice shelves and tidewater glaciers
• mass transport across the grounding line
• ocean circulation and water mass transformation beneath ice shelves and within pro-glacial fjords
• impact of ice shelves on the global ocean
• processes controlling the delivery of ocean heat to glaciated coastlines
• climate records from on or near current or former ice shelves
• iceberg calving, drift, melting, and decay
