It includes three science features: one on potential ice-free summers in the Arctic depending on small climate warming range; another looks at the ice sheet model initialisation experiments initMIP-Greenland; and the third highlights the Open Global Glacier Model (OGGM) v1.0. This issue also contains summaries from various CliC events held at the AGU Fall Meeting 2017 and since the beginning of the year, including the 14th Session of the CliC Scientific Steering Group; the 2017 CliC Annual Report; and a list of our upcoming workshops and meetings.
In this newsletter, we also welcome our new CliC Co-Chair Fiamma Straneo from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego.
Lastly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our out‐going CliC co‐chair Gerhard Krinner for guiding our work the last 5 years. Gerhard will stay involved in CliC as the lead of our ESM-SnowMIP Targeted Activity.
Enjoy reading through an interesting collection of science features, workshop reports, and CliC news!
