Dear colleagues,

The upcoming AGU Fall Meeting (AGU Centennial) will be held in Washington, D.C. 
December 10-14, 2018.

Abstracts should be be submitted by August 1, 2018 (end-of-day EDT).

We invite you to submit to the Cryosphere section session

C026: New data sources for the monitoring of polar ice sheets and their impact 
on ice sheet prediction.

Predicting the future of the polar ice sheets remains a challenging problem
in Earth system science. The coupling of ice, atmosphere, and ocean dynamics
as well as the complex mechanisms influencing the motion and deformation of ice 
sheets requires continued efforts to enhance ice sheet models and their 
predictions. This challenge has been recognized for decades, and extensive
in-situ, airborne, and spaceborne observations have been conducted to 
characterize ice sheet processes and their physical bases.

A variety of new data sources and sensing technologies have emerged in recent 
years that are or will provide new information to accelerate model improvement 
and validation.

The goal of the session is to provide an overview of multiple recent datasets 
for improving the monitoring of polar ice sheets, and to combine presentations 
on recent observations and their results, new concepts for data acquisition, 
and the impact of these measurements on models for predicting the future of 
Earth's polar ice sheets.

Please consider submitting to the session.

Best regards,

Joel T. Johnson (Ohio State University)
