  • Modelling and Observation of Solid-Earth Response to Ice-Ocean Load Changes | PolarTREC
    Load Changes Event Type Conferences and Workshops When 25 May 2015 to 28 May 2015 Where Fairbanks Alaska Melting of ice sheets and glaciers adds to the mass of water that fills the ocean basins and results in solid Earth deformation over a large range of spatial and temporal scales Both ice ocean load and surface deformation changes vertical and horizontal are far from completely observed and where they are observed they are typically not fully understood Observations of ice extent and paleo sea level are increasing in number but provide less spatial or temporal coverage than desired and reconstructions benefit from further indirect constraints associated with the deformation of the solid Earth Time series of relative sea level are particularly powerful additional constraints with modern geodetic measurements often providing more complete spatial coverage but with the limitation that the observations only cover a few decades at most This workshop will bring together those working on ice load reconstructions modeling of visco elastic processes and comparison to relative sea level and geodetic observations e g GRACE GPS ICESat CRYOSAT II in order to further refine our understanding of past to present ice ocean load changes and the characteristics of the solid Earth under time varying loads in order to advance our understanding of past ice sheet and sea level changes of the structure and rheology of Earth and of exactly what geodetic measurements are measuring Final Day Workshop on Elastic Modelling The final day of the meeting will provide an opportunity to gain hands on experience and tutoring on tools for computation of the high resolution elastic response of Earth to surface load changes The session will explore the theory and practical application of two tools REAR and SPOTL as well as a summary of sources for obtaining observed or
