Ice Core Science Community Planning Workshop 2020

April 2-3, 2020
Residence Inn Alexandria Old Town South at Carlyle
Alexandria, Virginia, USA

What

The U.S. Ice Drilling Program Ice Core Working Group (IDP-ICWG) will hold a U.S. community planning workshop on April 2 and 3, 2020, at the Residence Inn Alexandria Old Town South at Carlyle in Alexandria, VA. The meeting will be all day on Thursday, April 2, and Friday morning, April 3.

All are welcome to attend, but we need to plan available space, so register for the meeting before March 13. After we receive your registration, we will send you additional details of the meeting as it develops. Video-conferencing will be available for remote participation. If you plan to attend via webconferencing, please indicate that on your registration so that we can be in contact.

Scientific discoveries achieved in the Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets and temperate glaciers are critical to society today, but they are not achieved without significant advance planning. The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) will sponsor an interdisciplinary ice community workshop to identify science driving future Arctic and Antarctic ice coring sites, the ice drilling technology that will be needed, and the timeline over the coming decade for advancing ice core science on multiple frontiers. The outcome of the workshop will be white papers describing community endeavors with associated timelines that will become part of the updated U.S. Ice Drilling Program Long Range Science Plan.
