  • PALSEA2 2015 Workshop: Data-Model Integration and Comparison | PolarTREC
    to produce more accurate projections of future changes in ice extent and sea level As in previous PALSEA2 workshops a focus will be on data and modeling for past warm periods when ice extent was similar to or less than that at present e g mid Holocene last interglacial mid Pliocene with a key goal being to place improved constraints on the amplitudes and rates of sea level changes during such periods However data and model results for other periods are also of interest We encourage abstracts from colleagues who reconstruct changes in sea level the cryosphere and climate from the geological record and or apply models to interpret the observations and better understand the processes responsible for these changes The format will follow that of previous workshops with the schedule being split into coherent sessions with a handful of presentations in each ranging from overview talks that highlight areas of uncertainty and or poor understanding to those that are more detailed and focus on a specific problem Ample time will be allocated for discussion on key issues or topics of contention The intention is to attract a group of researchers that have a diverse and complementary range of expertise covering field and modelling approaches relevant to quantifying and understanding environmental changes that link sea level the cryosphere and climate The workshop is scheduled immediately before the INQUA congress in Nagoya 27 July to 2 August which is only a few hours away by train making it possible to attend both meetings during one trip to Japan Some funds will be available to support the attendance of early career researchers Confirmed keynote speakers include Jacqueline Austermann Harvard University Jeremy Fyke Los Alamos National Laboratory Bette Otto Bliesner National Center for Atmospheric Research Axel Timmermann University of Hawaii To apply to
