Cryosphere 2021

Cryosphere 2020 postponed until 2021

New dates:  27 September – 1 October 2021

The Icelandic Meteorological Office together with international partners is hosting a symposium highlighting rapid changes occurring in all components of the Earth’s cryosphere:

Glaciers, ice sheets, snow cover, sea ice, permafrost, lake ice and river ice.

Leading scientists will present latest results on changes occurring all over the planet and their impacts, which are felt at high and low latitudes, affecting the developed world, developing nations and indigeneous peoples. The occasion of this conference is the 100th anniversary of the Icelandic Meteorological Office and the transformation of the Global Cryosphere Watch (GCW) into operational stage. Along with oral and poster presentations on scientific results and new technologies, the symposium will allow time for panel discussions on research gaps and future perspectives in the light of the Paris Agreement that calls for limiting global warming to 1.5–2°C.
