Ice Sheet System Model Sea-Level Workshop

Event Type:
Conferences and Workshops
When: 
11 June 2018 to 12 June 2018
Where: 
Honolulu, Hawaii

The University of Hawaii Sea Level Center, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of California at Irvine will host the 2018 Sheet System Model (ISSM) Sea Level Workshop. This will be the first time an ISSM workshop is dedicated to Sea-Level Science. The workshop will take place at the at the East-West Center on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. It will be hosted by Pr. Phil Thompson of the University of Hawaii Sea Level Center and sponsored by the N-SLCT NASA Science Team.

Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since the 2016 workshop, including user-requested features will be presented. Specific focus will be on tutorials that allow users to make use of ISSM's SESAW capabilities. This will include computation of sea-level fingerprints using GRACE based estimates of ice-mass changes, use of high-resolution meshes to refine sea-level estimates in specific areas of the world, and computation of resulting stresses in the Earth crust (including lateral and vertical displacements). Participants will be invited to showcase their work during an open poster session, and science talks will be organized around relevant topics.
