Topic III: Sea level - ice sheet interaction

  • Improving process understanding of the iceberg calving linking the open ocean though fjords and outlet glaciers to the ice sheets; Improved description of ocean-ice sheet interaction; understanding ice-ocean interactions.
  • Developing improved representations of grounding line migration; quantifying the uncertainty of mass loss projections missing or poorly known topography and boundary conditions; providing parameterizations of basal melting and calving of outlet glaciers for coarse resolution models.


The work program is structured in four basic topics; work within each topic is expected to be addressed by several working groups as part of the SPP.
