Greenland Ice Sheet Stability: Lessons from the Past
Tackling the topic of Greenland Ice Sheet stability requires input from a range of disciplines that encompass both paleodata generation (ice and climate history) and numerical ice sheet modeling.
We wish to gather a community of diverse experts, including early career scientists, to bring different datasets and approaches together to see if consensus can be reached on the current state of knowledge of Greenland Ice Sheet history and sensitivity to climate forcing.
The goal of this workshop is to (a) synthesize the current state of knowledge and (b) develop key research priorities that will help guide future efforts to make significant traction on the problem of Greenland Ice Sheet stability. The aim of the workshop organizers is to work with the community on a manuscript to be submitted following the workshop.

EGU General Assembly 2023
The EGU General Assembly 2023 brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
Ice Core Early Career Researchers Workshop (ICECReW) 2023
The Ice Core Early Career Researchers Workshop (ICECReW) is a professional development workshop for early-career researchers. It will be held in-person at the University of Washington on May 7-8, 2023, prior to the start of the 2nd US Ice Core Open Science Meeting (being held May 8-10). ICECReW participants will meet with established researchers to better understand the processes involved in envisioning, planning, and funding ice core projects. This year's workshop focuses on encouraging collaboration and generating proposal ideas. ICECReW is intended for ECRs whose work contributes to the drilling, processing, or interpretation of ice core data. Application Deadline: February 10, 2023.
2nd Annual US Ice Core Open Science Meeting
The second annual US Ice Core Open Science Meeting will be held May 8-10, 2023, at the beautiful Center for Urban Horticulture at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.
This meeting is intended for anyone interested in ice core science or related fields, including ice-core analysis, ice or subglacial drilling, glacier geophysics that supports or depends on ice core records, paleoclimate, and contemporary climate and ice sheet change.
Goals of the meeting include 1) sharing the latest science, 2) discussing future ice core science projects in both polar regions and in alpine environments, 3) providing career development opportunities, and 4) improving communication about ice-core and related science both within and beyond the scientific community. We hope to attract a diverse group of participants, including those who may not have extensive experience working with ice cores.
While this meeting is primarily oriented at researchers in the US, international colleagues are welcome to attend.
The meeting will begin midday on Monday, May 8, and end in the late afternoon of Wednesday, May 10. The meeting will be preceded by an ICECReW pre-meeting workshop for early career researchers focused on proposal development and intentional collaboration (more details soon).
Details on hotel rooms, travel support, and other aspects of the meeting will be publicized in February. To ensure you do not miss announcements, we recommend joining the Hercules Dome mailing list.
See you in Seattle next Spring,

2nd US Antarctic Science Meeting
June 20-23, 2023
On line (Zoom) conference hosted by the US Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (US-SCAR)
Meeting details with links for meeting registration and abstract submission at the US-SCAR website. No registration fee.
US-SCAR is supported by funding from the NSF/Office of Polar Programs/Antarctic Sciences
In 2021 the US Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (US-SCAR) hosted the first US Antarctic Science Meeting. We are now announcing the call for abstracts and registration for the 2nd US Antarctic Science Meeting (June 20-23, 2023). The US Antarctic Science Meetings are for US scientists who are conducting research in, from or about Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. Scientists interested in getting involved in Antarctic research through US programs are also welcome and encouraged to attend. This conference is open to all US scientists and anyone interested in US Antarctic research.
The meeting will provide opportunities for US Antarctic scientists to get together and present their work, and for early career researchers and others new to Antarctic science to learn about SCAR and the various resources available to US scientists for Antarctic-related research. There will be a mix of Lightning Talks, panels and social activities for the US Antarctic community to meet and interact.
The meeting and associated events will be on Zoom. The schedule is set for two hours each day with additional time added for socializing. The panels will have brief presentations by panelists, and ample time will be devoted to questions and discussion. It will be a Zoom meeting, not a webinar.
If you have any questions, please contact Deneb Karentz firstname.lastname@example.org, US Delegate to SCAR. Hope to “see” you in June!
Sincerely, Deneb and the US-SCAR Team

International Symposium on the Edges of Glaciology
The conference will focus on edges in glaciology, which may include: beds of ice sheets or glaciers, supraglacial processes, crevasses, calving, grain boundaries (of ice and snow crystals), and perhaps philosophical edges.
If you are hoping to attend the symposium please indicate your ‘Expression of Interest’. This will ensure you will receive all information relevant to the symposium.
The First Circular is now available as a PDF.
15th International Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Ice (PCI-2023)
This conference will cover a wide range of topics related to physical, chemical, biological, geological, and environmental aspects of ice. The topics will range from fundamental to applied research, and will include laboratory, field, modeling, and computational work. We expect to have interdisciplinary discussions of ice. Session topics include:
- Surfaces and interfaces of ice
- Mechanical, dielectric, and optical properties of ice
- Ice phases, amorphous ice, and glass transition
- Ice and life
- Reactions on/in ice
- Ice and snow in the cryosphere
- Ice in space
- Clathrate hydrates
2023 WAIS Workshop
The West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Workshop Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the 2023 WAIS Workshop will take place September 25-28, 2023, at the University of Minnesota's Cloquet Forestry Center just outside Duluth, MN, USA. Sponsored by the National Science Foundation and NASA, the workshop focuses on marine ice-sheet and adjacent earth systems, with particular emphasis on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. As a reminder, recordings from the 2022 WAIS Workshop are available on YouTube. Previous years' talks are also online and past agendas are available at waisworkshop.org. The website will be updated with additional information about WAIS 2023 as it becomes available. To stay up-to-date on all things WAIS Workshop, sign up for the email distribution list here.
