A workshop bridging glacial geology and ice sheet modelling for the Late Pleistocene evolution of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will be held at LGGE (Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Géophysique de l'Environnement), Grenoble, May 22-24, 2014, (just prior to the IGS International Symposium on Observations, Modelling and Prediction of the Cryospheric Contribution to Sea Level Change, in Chamonix).

Workshop Objectives

1) Bring together the field and modelling communities working on Antarctica, Greenland, or both.
2) Clarify key uncertainties for the field data and modelling communities
3) compare latest model results to data and geological inferences
4) identify key model deficiencies wrt data
5) identify priorities for new data
6) consider what can be done to make paleo records and model output more accessible to various users
7) consider surprises in the model results and whether they are refuted by data

Some funding will be available to support attendance by young/junior scientists.
