  Information - NP2.05/CR15 Nonlinear cryospheric dynamics (co-organized by CR) (co-listed in OS)

Event Information
The nonlinear behavior of cryospheric systems is well known, but the
dynamic implications of these complexities are still emerging.
Examples include the recent discovery of tidally modulated ice
stream motion, continued advances in the description of grain-scale
processes and rheology, ongoing investigations into climate
feedbacks throughout the cryospheric system, and studies of emergent
phenomena leading to pattern formation in polar regions and on Mars.
This session is focussed on observational and modeling advances
towards an understanding of the nonlinear interactions that control
these and other cryospheric processes. We encourage relevant
submissions from across the spectrum of research in the cryosphere
and in nonlinear dynamics, and aim to establish this session as a
forum for scientific exchange between the cryospheric and applied
mathematics communities.
