"Numerical modelling in Glaciology: computational challenges and opportunities"

DATE: April 14, 2011

TIME: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00
SPEAKER: Ian Rutt, Department of Geography, College of Science, Swansea University
LOCATION: Bldg 240, 4301, Argonne National Laboratory

Ice sheets are a key component of the earth system, and consequently need to be taken into consideration in numerical predictions of climate change, both because of their involvement in internal climate feedbacks, and because of the societal risks posed by sea level change. This talk will explore some of the computational challenges posed by ice sheet modelling over different temporal and spatial scales, and outline work currently being undertaken to address these challenges, both at Swansea and elsewhere.
