International Symposium on Sea Ice 2023

The International Glaciological Society and the Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar- and Marine Research jointly organize an International Symposium on ICE in 2023. The symposium will be held at Bremerhaven, Germany, on 4-9 June 2023.

Across Spatial and Temporal Scales

Sea ice is an important component of the Earth’s climate system and strongly affects marine ecosystems and human activities in both hemispheres. Sea ice is changing rapidly on various temporal and spatial scales, and systematic observations and modeling across these scales is required to better understand underlying processes and interactions, and to predict the ice’s future fate. This symposium will invite contributions by the international sea ice research community to exchange recent findings and advances in observations, process understanding, and modeling of sea ice world-wide. While the focus of the symposium will be on the physical ocean-ice-atmosphere system, cross-cutting interdisciplinary contributions are invited from fields like sea ice ecology and biogeochemistry, ice engineering, human use of the sea ice environment, and others.
