Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to contribute to the following session as part 
of the EGU General Assembly (8–13 April 2018, Vienna, Austria):

Ice-sheet and climate interactions [CR1.2/CL4.19]

Ice sheets play an active role in the climate system by amplifying, 
pacing, and potentially driving global climate change over a wide range 
of time scales. The impact of interactions between ice sheets and 
climate include changes in atmospheric and ocean temperatures and 
circulation, global biogeochemical cycles, the global hydrological 
cycle, vegetation, sea level, and land-surface albedo, which in turn 
cause additional feedbacks in the climate system. This session will 
present data and modelling results that examine ice sheet interactions 
with other components of the climate system over several time scales. 
Among other topics, issues to be addressed in this session include ice 
sheet-climate interactions from glacial-interglacial to millennial and 
centennial time scales, the role of ice sheets in Cenozoic global 
cooling and the mid-Pleistocene transition, reconstructions of past ice 
sheets and sea level, the current and future evolution of the ice 
sheets, and the role of ice sheets in abrupt climate change.


Co-Conveners: Heiko Goelzer, Philippe Huybrechts, Alexander Robinson,
