WGOMD-SOP Workshop on Sea Level Rise, Ocean / Ice Shelf Interactions, and Ice Sheets

The registration and call for abstracts has opened for the:
CLIVAR WGOMD-SOP Workshop on Sea Level Rise, Ocean / Ice Shelf Interactions, and Ice Sheets to be held at CSIRO, in Hobart, Australia from 18-20 February 2013.

The workshop aims to bring together leading international scientists and early career scientists from the ocean, ice-sheet, ice-shelf, and sea level rise modeling and observational communities to

  • Identify priorities for reducing uncertainties in the projections of global and regional sea-level rise,
  • Evaluate the state-of-science of ocean and land-ice interactions,
  • Investigate pathways for the development of the next generation of climate models incorporating interactive land-ice components.
