To continue fostering scientific exchanges in the sea level and ice sheet community in these difficult times, the organizers decided to set up a virtual meeting, named PALSEA Express, for the dates of September 15th and 16th, 2020. Each day will consist of three hours, divided between invited talks (20 minutes each plus question time) and virtual poster presentations.

16th September 1600: Julia Gottschalk (Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Palisades) - Perturbations in bottom water formation in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean during the last peak interglacial period: implications for Antarctic ice sheet stability 1630: Rob DeConto (University of Massachusetts Amherst) - What was the source of LIG sea level rise? 1700-1800: Virtual poster session 1800: Eric Wolff (University of Cambridge) and the WACSWAIN project team -WAIS loss in the last interglacial: if and when? Latest update from the WACSWAIN project 1830: Blake Dyer (University of Victoria) - Sea level trends across the Bahamas constrain peak Last Interglacial ice melt
Virtual poster abstract submission During the two-day meeting we have two slots, between the invited speaker talks, for virtual poster presentations. Abstract submission is now online and will close August 15th, 2020. You can submit your abstract through this form(word limit 3000 characters).
PLEASE NOTE: each abstract will be reviewed by the organizing committee. As the virtual meeting time is limited, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all abstracts. Priority will be given to Early Career Researchers and researchers from low GDP countries. Abstracts will be posted to the PALSEA website in advance of the meeting.
Registration We encourage anyone interested in the meeting to register by September 11th, 2020. This will allow us to circulate details of the Zoom meeting prior to it starting. Please note, you do not need to submit an abstract to be able to register for PALSEA Express. People who are speakers or who have submitted poster abstracts will automatically receive information on the Zoom meeting and therefore don't need to register. To register, please fill out this form.
