  • ISMASS Workshop on the Marine Science Sheet and Ice Shelf-Ocean Model Intercomparison Projects | PolarTREC
    workshop will be held in Cambridge on Sunday afternoon 16 August 2015 right before the IGS meeting The precise location and time will be announced soon Ice ocean interactions are considered to lie at the basis of current and future ice mass loss of the Antarctic ice sheet One of the feedback mechanisms that can be generated through such ice ocean interaction is the so called marine ice sheet instability which generates at present the most important uncertainty for the projections of sea level in the context of global warming A set of 3 types of idealized intercomparison experiments for studying marine ice sheet processes in ice sheet ocean and coupled models have been developed over the past year MISMIP was announced at EGU 2014 and presented at AGU 2014 The remaining experiments ISOMIP and MISOMIP1 were conceived of at WCRP Climate and Cryosphere workshop at NYU Abu Dhabi in October 2015 All three experiments were presented at the MISOMIP Splinter meeting at EGU April 2015 by Xylar Asay Davis and Stephen Cornford MISMIP the third Marine Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Project in which a marine ice sheet is forced by the ocean chair Stephen Cornford and Hilmar Gudmundsson ISOMIP the second Ice Shelf Ocean Model Intercomparison Project where the ocean and sub ice shelf cavity is forced by a prescribed marine ice sheet geometry changing with time chair Xylar Asay Davis MISOMIP1 the first Marine Ice Sheet Ocean Model Intercomparison Project a coupling of MISMIP and ISOMIP chair Xylar Asay Davis More information is available on the MISOMIP website http www climate cryosphere org activities targeted misomip The design of these experiments will be published by this summer in the Copernicus journal GMD Therefore the meeting in August will be an excellent opportunity to Explain what the relation is
