Geoscience Modeling for Novices (morning of 8/26; Leader: Robert DeConto; University of Massachusetts; email)

This is a short course on climate and ice sheet modeling for Antarctic geoscientists. Experts in paleoclimate (GCMs) and glaciological modeling will present synthesis of various types of models and how they are integrated. They will demonstrate the models, discuss their limitations and the simplifications and assumptions commonly used; importantly also, they will discuss what proxies need to be studied by geoscientists, what data geoscientists need to provide modelers, and how geoscientists can use model outcomes.
