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.
Abstract submission and early bird registration will start in January 2022.
- Abstract submission deadline: 15 March 2022
- Early bird registration deadline: 01 June 2022
- Registration deadline: 01 August 2022
