-ISMASS is a SCAR/IASC/CliC activity

ismassbannerThe Ice Sheet Mass Balance and Sea Level (ISMASS) Workshop on the Marine Ice Sheet and Ice Shelf‐Ocean Model Intercomparison Projects (MISMIP+, ISOMIP+, MISOMIP1) was held on Sunday, August 16, 2015 from 2-5 pm at Churchill College in Cambridge, UK, during the International Glaciological Society Symposium on Contemporary Ice-Sheet Dynamics: ocean interaction, meltwater and non-linear effects. About 40 participants from around the world attended the workshop, which was co-sponsored/supported by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) and the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Project. The workshop was focused on presenting the design of three MIPs: the third Marine Ice Sheet MIP (MISMIP+), the second Ice Shelf Ocean MIP (ISOMIP+) and the first Marine Ice Sheet Ocean MIP (MISOMIP1).
