Several members of the Disko Bay team presented preliminary findings yesterday at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco.  According to their website, “With nearly 24,000 attendees, the AGU Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world.”  The poster, Using Coastal Ice Cap Records to Investigate Maritime Climate and Ice Sheet Processes in West Greenland, was on display in the Moscone West Poster Hall from 1:40-6:00 PM non Monday.

Other team members will also be presenting on related work at AGU:

Laura Stevens et al (including Sarah Das):  Hydrologically Induced Basal Slip Triggers Greenland Supraglacial Lake Drainages
