Abstract deadline extension for Workshop on GIA and Elastic Deformation

1logo SERCEThe abstract deadline for the International Workshop on Glacial Isostatic Adjustment and Elastic Deformation, to be held September 5-7, 2017, at Grand Hotel Reykjavik, has now been extended until Friday June 16. Abstracts must be submitted following the website instructions.


Workshop Theme:

Past and present changes in the mass balance of the Earth's glaciers and ice caps induce present-day deformation of the solid Earth on a range of spatial scales, from the very local to global. Of principal interest are geodetic observations that validate, or may be assimilated into, models of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) and/or constrain models of present-day ice mass change through measurements of elastic rebound. Using geometric measurements alone, elastic and viscoelastic deformations cannot be separated without additional models or observations. The conference will focus on resolving these issues and work on dissemination of these measurements within the glaciological community.

Travel support:

Thanks to generous funding from the SCAR SERCE programme, The European Space Agency (ESA), and the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), there are funds available to part-support a limited number of attendees. These will be awarded after the abstract submission deadline and preference will be given to early stage researchers and scientists from a SCAR nation with an emerging Antarctic programs, and to participants involved in ESA projects or using ESA data. All supported attendees must present at the workshop. Applicants must indicate that they are requesting travel support at the time of abstract submission.

Application deadline for early career scientists travel support: July 1st, 2017.

Further details on Workshop Sessions and Registration can be found at the workshop website.

Registrations are open until August 2, 2017.
