AGU 2016 SESSION P005: CRACKING UP – ICE-OCEAN DYNAMICS ON EARTH AND OCEAN WORLDS

agu2016

We invite abstracts for our AGU 2016 session, which aims to host a fruitful discussion of ice-ocean dynamics on Earth and around the solar system. We seek a wide range of terrestrial glaciology/oceanography and planetary research to foster the Earth-planetary connection.

Ice-fluid interactions are major contributors to the dynamic and often unpredictable processes observed across many “ocean worlds,” including on Earth and the floating shells of distant icy satellites. However, our understanding of the physical processes controlling ice-ocean
interaction remains limited, even on Earth. Bringing together Earth and planetary studies of ice-fluid interaction is the aim of this session, which invites abstracts focused on dynamic phenomena that arise in ices due to ice-fluid interactions. This session is open to
contributions regarding sea ice, glaciers and ice shelves, icy satellites, Pluto, and beyond. Examples of these dynamics range from sea ice drift and ice shelf collapse, to plumes on Enceladus, to chaos on Europa.
