Members of the Glacier Dynamics lab at UIdaho are preparing this week for next week’s gathering of Northwest Glaciologists. Chris Miele will present a theory-based analysis on the interplay between submarine melt and iceberg calving, and how calving varies with the spatial pattern of submarine melt. Emma Swaninger will present on the response of Rink Glacier to the brief formation of ice melange within its West Greenland fjord. And Abby Lute, a Ph.D. student on whose committee Tim serves, will present her work on the climatic and other environmental factors controlling the distribution of rock glaciers.
It’s an exciting time as we hustle to prepare results, and we’re looking forward to meeting next week with friends and colleagues in Corvallis, Oregon.
