Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to this session at the upcoming 
IUGG General Assemby 2019 in Montreal, 8-18 July 2019:

*C05 – Fast Glacier Flow: Processes, Observations and Modelling of Ice 
Streams, Tidewater Glaciers and Surging Glaciers. *

See the full session description below. The deadline for abstract 
submissions is *18 February 2019*.

With kind regards from the convenors

Christine S. Hvidberg, Ralf Greve, Christina Hulbe, Martin Truffer

*C05 – Fast Glacier Flow: Processes, Observations and Modelling of Ice 
Streams, Tidewater Glaciers and Surging Glaciers*
Convener: Christine S. Hvidberg (Denmark). Co-Conveners: Ralf Greve 
(Japan), Christina Hulbe (New Zealand), Martin Truffer (USA)
Description
Fast flowing ice streams and glaciers are important in maintaining the 
overall mass balance of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, yet the 
conditions that facilitate and regulate their fast flow remain poorly 
understood. The mechanics that govern fast flow and surging appear to be 
very responsive to changing conditions in the subglacial environment and 
at the front with effects on the whole glacier system. This symposium 
welcomes contributions from studies of ice streams, tidewater glaciers 
and surging glaciers, including the subglacial hydrology, shear margin 
processes, grounding line dynamics, the buttressing role of ice shelves 
and floating tongues, calving, the influence of surface meltwater and 
lake drainage, and other ice deformation and mechanical studies related 
to fast flow. Process studies, observations and/or numerical modelling 
investigations are all welcome.
