Polar Climate and Land Ice Working Group Meeting 2022

Polar climate working group
Mar. 7 to Mar. 9, 2022

1:00 – 12:00 pm MST

Main content

The Polar Climate Working Group is a consortium of scientists who are interested in modeling and understanding the climate in the Arctic and the Antarctic, and how polar climate processes interact with and influence climate at lower latitudes. Our members come from universities and laboratories, and our interests span all elements of polar climate, from the ocean depths to the top of the atmosphere. In addition to conducting scientific modeling experiments, we are charged with developing and maintaining the state-of-the-art sea ice model component (CICE) used in CESM. The Land Ice Working Group brings together scientists who are interested in understanding and modeling the role of ice sheets and glaciers in past, present and future climates. The main aims of the LIWG are to couple a well-validated, dynamical ice sheet model (CISM, the Community Ice Sheet Model) to CESM and to project decade-to-century-scale sea level rise associated with land ice loss. We share many interests with the Polar Climate and Paleoclimate Working Groups, among others.
