  Information - CR17 Evolution of Eurasian ice sheets during the last glaciation

Event Information
This new EGU session is intended to bring together researchers from a variety of disciplines who are interested in the evolution of ice sheets in northwest Europe during the last glaciation. The primary aim of the session is to attract scientists involved in both modelling and field-based studies in order to stimulate cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration. Of particular interest are papers that present: (1) new observational constraints that can be (or have been) employed to improve quantitative ice sheet reconstructions; (2) improved glaciological models of ice sheet evolution; (3) new developments in calibrating ice sheet models via geological or geodetic data sets; (4) key problems or limitations of current ice sheet models and/or methodologies employed to construct these models; (5) important issues with respect to the response or influence of these ice sheets on regional and global climate change.

It is hoped that the session will attract researchers from a wide variety of disciplines that includes (but is not limited to): glacial geology (marine and terrestrial), sea-level reconstruction, glaciology, glacial isostasy, geodesy.
