We are looking forward to host around 80 Antarctic scientists at the Forum for Research into Ice Shelf Processes (FRISP) meeting in Stalheim (close to Bergen, Norway) next week.
FRISP is an annual event where scientists working on ice shelf processes meet and discuss their latest research in an informal and often remote setting.
TiPACCs participants have been key for initialising this meeting platform in the 1980s. It started as a subcommittee of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) focussing mostly on the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf. Over the last decades the scope has widened to include all ice shelf processes, and the event transitioned from an European forum into an international meeting.
This years FRISP is organised by TiPACCs, NORCE, the University of Bergen, and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. It is furthermore sponsored by Nortek and Aanderaa. Check out the exciting program and more information here.
