Abstract deadline for the summer 2018 IGS Symposium, “Timescales and Processes of Glacier Dynamics”, to be held June 3-8 in Buffalo, NY, is fast approaching. Abstract submission deadline is Monday, March 26. Submit at https://www.igsoc.org/abstracts/a78/ soon! The timescales of the evolution of continental-scale ice masses and the processes that drive them are research topics in an increasing number of scientific disciplines, including paleoclimate, biology, and hydrology, and glaciology. The 2018 IGS Symposium on glacier dynamics, presented in an interdisciplinary sense, will bring together these broad research themes. The meeting will address glacier dynamics through the lens of timescales (from subannual to millennial) and specific physical processes that drive glacier change, both of which require insights from multiple fields, such as glaciology, geology, paleoclimate. Abstracts are solicited across five central themes: - Physical processes that occur on a range of timescales relevant to glaciers and ice sheets, including long-term (~100 kyr) evolution of ice masses- Comparison of the observational record to model output in order to attribute changes to specific processes- Distinguishing natural variability from indications of glacier or ice-sheet instability - Links between paleoclimate records (100–100,000 year timescales) and modern observations or models of glaciers and ice sheets- Techniques for incorporating new physical processes into glacier, ice-sheet, or coupled-system models The symposium will build on the thematic topics listed above through presentations that link paleoclimate research to modern glaciers and ice sheets. More information, including schedule, setting, and excursions, is available at https://www.igsoc.org/symposia/2018/buffalo/buffalo2ndcirc_web.pdf .A special issue of Annals of Glaciology, themed “Timescales and Processes of Glacier Dynamics”, will accompany the conference.Please submit your abstract at https://www.igsoc.org/abstracts/a78/.
