Roundtable 1: Study regions

Possible discussion questions:

  • What questions are the climate change community pressuring us to answer?
  • What do we know now that would have been a big surprise 10 years ago?
  • How important is field data to your research? If you could collect any field data/observations to progress your work, what would it/they be?
  • What is the holy grail of our subfield?
  • What areas should we avoid trying to answer at this time due to complexity?

...

Roundtable 2: Background

Possible discussion questions:

  • Given your background in XX, what have you done/would you do outside of your area of expertise to make yourself a better cryosphere scientist?
  • Why have we come to glaciology, over the other careers / topics available to people with our background?
  • Glaciology is 'hot' now... how hot will it stay? What are possible exit ramps once it cools down?
  • Will data gaps between the current and next generation of satellite sensors affect what work can be done?
  • What should we do immediately post-PhD? travel, stay at home institution, ship off to postdoc abroad, ...
  • How can I continue to deal with people who say, "Oh, you study glaciers, huh? Better hurry up, hohnk hohnk"
  • Are there areas of cryosphere study that are better studied with strong math tools?
