  Information - GM1 Glacial landscapes: implications for glacial processes, patterns and reconstructions (co-listed in CR)

Event Information
Glacial landscapes are typically studied to deduce former erosional and depositional properties of glaciers and ice sheets. These studies help constrain the processes at work, detail patterns of landscape change, and ultimately, underpin palaeoglaciological reconstructions that provide critical tests for global climate models and improve forward modelling of glacier and ice sheet response to future climate change. However, the validity of this approach is by virtue of a proper understanding of glacial erosional and depositional processes from currently glaciated settings. In this session we seek contributions from scholars in the fields of both contemporary glacial processes and glacial geomorphology. The aim of the session is to relate process-scale studies of subglacial erosion, sediment evacuation and deposition to changes in the glacial landscape and, henceforth, to inverse procedures that deduce large spatial-scale properties of glaciers and ice sheets. Therefore, contributions that integrate or examine the implications of small-scale theoretical and/or field observations at broader spatial and longer temporal scales, and vice versa, are especially welcomed.
