Measurements of ice structures by means of image analysis Workshop

The internal structure of polar ice sheets and mountain glaciers has been analyzed for
several decades by increasingly sophisticated imaging techniques. A workshop held in
Bremerhaven (Germany), 23 – 27 February 2015, will focus on the current state of
available methods of image analysis applicable for micrometer- to hundred meter-scale
structures. The objective is also bringing together researchers from a variety of
backgrounds to compile the current state of already available and possibly derivable data.
The workshop is organized at AWI, Alfred-Wegener-Institut Helmholtz-Zentrum für Polarund
Meeresforschung and is sponsored by the ESF research networking programme

Accommodation as well as catering is offered at a price of 50 €. The number of places is
limited and are assigned on a first come/first served basis. Travel costs are covered by
the participants.


Invited speakers/lecturers: Renée Heilbronner, Mark Peternell, Sérgio H. Faria
