At the SIAM CSE conference, a two part mini-symposium on Ice Sheet Modeling was organized by Sandians Luca Bertagna, Mauro Perego (1442) and Irina Tezaur (8759) along with Daniel Martin from LBNL. The mini-symposium focused on theoretical and computational advancements in ice sheet modeling, addressing many of the mathematical and computational challenges arising when modeling the dynamics of large ice sheets for computing projections of sea level rise. During the two lively sessions, a variety of topics were addressed by the speakers, including mesh adaptation, coupling of ice sheets and ocean, iceberg mélange and Bayesian inference. Bertagna, Hansen and Perego from SNL gave talks related to DOE’s PISCEES and FASTMath SciDAC projects.
