A workshop will be held in Beijing Normal University, China from July 25 to July 27, 2013 before IGS Annual Meeting. The announcement is as follows. All interested in this workshop are welcome.
International Workshop on Ice in Motion; Forum for Community Feedback on ICESat-2 Data Needs
Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China; July 25-27, 2013
Ice in the polar region, including ice sheets, ice shelves and sea ice are in constant motion, which are closely related to global change. Sea-level rise (SLR) is one of the consequences global change. Recent studies of the SLR budget indicate that the contribution from land ice has increased by ~60% in the past decade. This workshop on ice in motion will take place right before the Beijing 2013 IGS symposium and will concentrate on the recent advances in remote sensing and observation of the Cryosphere. A primary purpose will be to inform the scientific community of the ICESat-2 mission and obtain feedback about their global ice data needs. Over 10 invited talks will be given by internationally known scientists, including Drs. Robert Bindschadler, Jay Zwally, Ted Scambos, Regine Hock, Franciso Navarro, Weili Wang, Yuansheng Li, Bo Sun, Rongxing Li, et al.
The workshop is organized by the College of Global Change and Earth System Science (GCESS), Beijing Normal University (BNU) and the State key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science (SLRSS).
