iSTAR for scientists
The changes in flow of glaciers draining ice sheets is so poorly understood that in their 2007 report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) believed it was the least well understood, and potentially the largest, contribution to sea-level rise in the coming century.
iSTAR scientists will be working together to engage with the scientific community on sea level projection to make sure their results are put to best use. Scientific publications will contribute to sea level estimates in the 6th Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, the main document used by policy makers.
Our work will inform glaciologists studying complex procedures, assist oceanographers to understand sea level rise and how ice melt can contribute to this.
Enthusing the next generation of researchers is an important part of this science programme. A number of initiatives for early career scientists, such as a workshop at the University of East Anglia, are planned.
Our science team will test and develop techniques that will be useful for the wider scientific community to fully exploit data from this and future missions.
Regular updates for the sea level rise community will be posted on this website.
This list contains the journal articles and other publications that acknowledge iSTAR funding, or have been listed as project outputs by the investigators.
