April 2, 2020
VIRTUAL MEETING ONLY
On Thursday, April 2, a virtual Ice Core Working Group Community Meeting was held for presenting and discussing information relevant to the U.S. ice coring program and for updating the IDP Long Range Science Plan.
The workshop produced the following draft white papers. U.S. scientists are invited to provide additional input to the draft white papers. Comments and edits are required before June 4, 2020.
- Research Priorities for Alpine Glaciers and Ice Caps
- send comments to Paolo Gabrielli before June 4, 2020
- Community Recommendations for the NSF Ice Core Facility
- send comments to T.J. Fudge before June 4, 2020
- Paleoclimate Ice Core Research Priorities in Antarctica
- send comments to Tyler Jones before June 4, 2020
- Ice Core Research Priorities in Greenland
- send comments to Erich Osterberg before June 4, 2020
Due to the spread of COVID-19, we will not be holding the in-person workshop. Instead we will have a one-day virtual Ice Core Working Group Community Meeting on Thursday, April 2, for presenting and discussing information relevant to the U.S. ice coring program and for updating the IDP Long Range Science Plan. Here is related information:
- The virtual meeting on April 2 will occur via the Zoom platform; access information will be sent out to registered participants before the end of March.
- A revised draft Agenda for the April 2 virtual meeting will be sent out to all registered participants early next week.
- Our intention at this time is to hold an in-person workshop in D.C. on October 1 & 2, but that depends on the status of COVID-19. If you are not currently holding an airline ticket but you wish to attend the October meeting, please consider waiting until late summer to make the purchase. However, if you have already purchased an airline ticket for the April meeting, you may wish to check with the airline, since many airlines are now offering to re-issue the ticket with no penalty.
- Invited speakers and ICWG members who had purchased their own airline tickets for the April meeting should contact Mary Albert.
The spread of COVID-19 is currently increasing, and we feel that holding the virtual meeting is prudent. The good news is that science planning and preparation for the future will continue!
