Ice flow modelling group

The ice flow modelling group at Centre for Ice and Climate studies ice sheets and glaciers in the climate system. Our research interests cover glaciological themes related to ice flow modelling and observations, surface mass balance and evolution of ice sheets. 

Annual Greenland Ice Sheet Seminar

The annual seminar maintains a network between research groups in Denmark working on the Greenland Ice Sheet. It is held the first Thursday in January. Contact Christine Hvidberg for further information (Email below).

Next meeting: January 7, 2021 at DTU.

Previous years: 2020(NBI) 2019(DMI) 2018(GEUS) 2017(CIC/NBI) 2016(SNM) 2015(DTU) 2014(DMI) 2013(NBI) 2011(GEUS) 2010(DMI) 2009(NBI) 2008(DMI) 2006(NBI)

Weekly group meetings.

NOTICE - We plan to have blended meetings in autumn 2020 - physical meetings at Tagensvej 16 and online attendence via zoom. Send an email to Christine if you want to participate.
