Polar and Alpine Events Calendar
Date and time: Tue, January 25, 2022 - 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM CET
This discussion series aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. It supports efforts to increase consistency in treatment of tipping elements in the scientific community, develop a research agenda, and design joint experiments and ideas for a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip).
This discussion series is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance and the Safe Landing Climates Light House Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP).
This event will focus on the ice sheets:
- Introduction and moderation – Heiko Goelzer and Hannah Liddy (10min)
- Projections from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets: insights from IPCC AR6 – Sophie Nowicki (20min)
- Beyond gradual change: Tipping points in Greenland and Antarctica – Ricarda Winkelmann (20min)
- Questions and discussion (20min)
The final 20min has been reserved for informal discussions on the research agenda and the development of a Tipping Element Model Intercomparison Project (TipMip).
The event will be recorded.
(Note that this event was originally scheuled for November. If you signed up in November, there is no need to do so again.)
