Information - CR22 Glacier dynamics and calving fluxes: tidewater glaciers, ice streams and glacier surges
The latest IPCC report identifies changing glacier dynamics as a key unknown in our ability to predict the future of the major ice sheets and their contribution to sea level rise. This session seeks observational and theoretical contributions that address changes in glacier dynamics and calving losses from glaciers and ice sheets. Of special interest are: remote sensing and field observations of tidewater glaciers, the outlet glaciers and ice streams of Greenland and Antarctica; theoretical developments and modelling related to fast flow or changes in glacier flow rates; calving processes and glacier surging.
