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.
