Antarctis Focus Group Workshop I

As a follow-up of our recent Antarctic Focus Group kick-off meeting, we invite you to the PalMod Antarctic Focus Group Workshop I, which will take place 

June 7 from 2 to 4.30 pm

The task of this meeting is to discuss common aspects of Antarctica which are investigated in different working groups and packages inside PalMod.

We identified four subtopics, we want to focus on, and the respective discussion leads:

1. Surface mass balance (Ute Krebs-Kanzow)

3. Sub-shelf melting and ice-ocean interaction (Hu Yang)
4. Ocean (Torge Martin)
