Rising global sea-levels is one of the most discussed potential consequences of global warming. The most uncertain aspect of such future sea-level change has to do with the marine based ice sheets. Despite the importance of these ice sheets, current generation global climate models are unable to simulate sea-level change arising from glacier-ocean interaction, limiting the discussion on this important topic.
In working to further remediate the situation, this workshop brings together experts in the international modeling community to discuss the advancement of state-of-the-art regional-scale glacier-ocean simulations.
