The establishment a Greenland Ice Sheet Ocean Observing System (GrIOOS) was
discussed at a workshop held in San Francisco, in December 2015. The goal
of GrIOOS is to provide concurrent and long-term records of glaciological,
oceanographic and atmospheric parameters at the ice sheet margins that will
improve understanding of the heat, nutrients and freshwater exchanges,
between the ice sheet and the ocean, and of the impact of such exchanges on
the glaciers, sea-ice, the ocean and the marine ecosystem. The workshop,
funded by SEARCH-NSF, CliC and the US Arctic Research Commission, was
attended by ~50 international participants representing the wide range of
disciplines involved.

We invite you to a presentation summarizing discussions held, and
conclusions reached, at that workshop at the AGU Fall Meeting on:* Monday
December 11th 12:30 to 1:30 pm *at:
Riverside I Room (2nd floor) – ARCUS Room

Hampton Inn & Suites New Orleans-Convention Center
1201 Convention Center Blvd., New Orleans

Comments on the report are welcome either via email to
grioos.report at gmail.com or in person at the AGU presentation.

We will have food at the AGU presentation. Please RSVP to
grioos.report at gmail.com by December 5th so we can get a rough head count.
