Modelling ice sheets and glaciers (including Arne Richter Award Lecture for OSY)
Convener: Gael Durand  | Co-Conveners: Guðfinna Aðalgeirsdóttir , Frank Pattyn 
 / Wed, 15 Apr, 08:30–12:30
 / Attendance Wed, 15 Apr, 17:30–19:00

This session is intended to attract a broad range of ice-sheet and glacier modelling contributions, welcoming applied and theoretical contributions. Theoretical topics that are encouraged are higher-order mechanical models, data inversion and assimilation, representation of other earth sub-systems in ice-sheet models, and the incorporation of basal processes and novel constitutive relationships in these models.

Applications of newer modelling themes to ice-sheets and glaciers past and present are particularly encouraged, in particular those considering ice streams, rapid change, grounding line motion and ice-sheet model intercomparisons.
