The International Glaciological Society (IGS) will hold the next International
Symposium on Sea Ice in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, 18–23 August 2019.
Registration will begin on 9 April 2019.
Sea Ice at the Interface. Sea ice plays a critically important yet highly dynamic
role in global climate, polar marine ecosystems, globalization and indigenous
cultures. Ongoing dramatic changes to the sea-icescape and freshwater–marine
coupling, particularly involving ice sheets, glaciers, ice shelves, sea-ice loss and
continental runoff, have major implications for climate within and beyond the
polar regions, environmental and ecological integrity, and regional and global
socioeconomic development. This symposium presents a timely opportunity to
show recent advances in our knowledge and technological capabilities in sea-ice
related research. In addition, the symposium will encourage holistic discussions
amongst scientists, stakeholders and policy makers regarding the most recent
changes, long-term trends and variability in the sea-ice environment in both
hemispheres, and how best to engage and communicate with the general public.
