Dear colleagues,

We invite you to contribute to the session “Interrogating the Cryosphere: Insights and Advances from Geophysical Observations” for the AGU Fall Meeting 2020. This session will showcase the latest geophysical innovations and revelations in studies of the frozen Earth (permafrost, glaciers, ice sheets, snow, etc.). This session is co-organized between Cryosphere, Near-Surface Geophysics, and Seismology sections. We hope you will submit an abstract and share this announcement with interested colleagues. As a reminder, the deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, 29 July 23:59 EDT.

Abstract submission information:

Thank you,
Stephanie James [USGS]

Session Title: [NS005] Interrogating the Cryosphere: Insights and Advances from Geophysical Observations
Session Description: The cold regions of our planet are experiencing unprecedented changes. However, the temporal and spatial variations in cryospheric processes and structures – predominantly hidden within the subsurface – can be difficult to monitor over large areas and at high resolution. Geophysical observations are uniquely capable of characterizing, mapping, and monitoring subsurface properties across a range of scales. Advances in instrumentation, computing strategies, and innovative approaches make geophysical methods advantageous for addressing many open cryospheric research questions. We seek submissions describing developments, insights, and opportunities provided by geophysical observations in the study of glaciers, ice sheets, sea ice, snow, permafrost, and seasonally frozen ground. We welcome contributions applying ground and airborne geophysical field and modeling methods to the characterization, detection, and/or monitoring of cold-region environments. Studies exploring new methodologies and multidisciplinary approaches, and addressing cryospheric systems in transition are particularly encouraged.
