The PAIS Geoscience SCAR Research Programme is hosting a programmatic conference to discuss the sensitivity of Antarctica’s ice sheet and its contribution to past and future sea level change.

The aim of the conference is to present recent results that address still open questions in understanding the sensitivity of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and its contribution to past and future sea level and climate change (http://www.scar.org/horizonscan Kennicutt M.C. Chown S. et al., Nature, 2014).

An important development in understanding and predicting Antarctic ice-sheet behaviour has been the validation and testing of ice sheet models on past climates with boundary conditions that are relevant to future projections.

While the focus of the conference will be on the latest developments in paleo-ice sheet and climate reconstructions using data and models, we also invite researchers and students from geodynamical, climatological, glaciological, oceanographic, ecosystem and ice cores communities, since their work is crucial for understanding the processes and dynamics of the integrated system.

All presentations will be in plenary oral and poster sessions, and each day will end with a plenary discussion to enable the maximum interaction of different groups and disciplines.

Workshops/satellite business meetings can be organized upon request, on Wednesday Sept. 13 th (afternoon), and/or on the week-end before or after the conference.
