Group Seminar

In this seminar, we give presentations about our own research. Newcomers to our group talk about their BSc research or previous experience. Sometimes, guest researchers or OB/OG give talks as well.

Held irregularly in the ILTS auditorium, lecture room or conference room.

Shun Shinohara
Shin Sugiyama Ice speed of a Greenlandic tidewater glacier modulated by tide, melt, and rain
Takuro Imazu Fieldwork in Svalbard and remote sensing of glacier lake
Jia-Yan Chang Terminus dynamics of Taku Glacier, Alaska, during the transition from advance to retreat
Hiroto Sakata Spatiotemporal reconstruction of accumulation rate in the southeast dome of Greenland ice sheet using ground penetrating radar
Soratakto Yamada Drone survey on Qaanaaq Glacier, northwestern Greenland, for studying surface elevation change and supraglaci al stream development
Takako Toyoyama Ice flow and basal layer flow beneath ice sheet
Félix Grandadam Storm induced instabilities in the Bay of Biscay

Reading Circle

For studying basics of glacier physics, we hold this reading circle. Textbook is the most popular one about glacier physics, The Physics of Glaciers (4th. ed.) by Cuffey & Paterson.
Presenter read each part, explain to participants. All participants join discussion, deepen their understandings.

§1. Introduction
§2. Transformation of Snow to Ice
§4. Mass Balance Processes
§15. Ice Core Studies
§8. The flow of Ice Masses

Journal Seminar

Graduate students in the course of Cryosphere introduce recent paper related to their own research theme.
MSc students: twice a year
PhD students: once a year
#Irregularly Friday, @Lecture room, ILTS.
