2018 Ice Sheet System Model Sea-Level Workshop

11.06 - 12.06.2018  
Hawaii, USA

The University of Hawaii Sea Level Center, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of California at Irvine will host the 2018 Ice Sheet System Model Sea-Level Workshop (ISSM) in Hawaii, USA, from 11-12 June 2018.


The East-West Center
Campus of the University of Hawaii


The workshop will be hosted by Prof. Phil Thompson of the University of Hawaii Sea Level Center and sponsored by the N-SLCT Sea-Level NASA Science Team.

This time, the workshop will focus entirely on new state-of-the-art capabilities related to sea-level and solid-Earth simulations in ISSM.

Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Specific focus will be on tutorials that allow users to make use of GRACE ice mass change dataset to compute sea-level fingerprints and refine them on a global scale at a level compatible with complex local coastal geometries.

Part of the workshop will also be dedicated to the computation of solid-Earth surface stress and deformation resulting from ice and sea-level related loads. Participants will be invited to showcase their work during an open poster session, and science talks will be organized around relevant topics.
