Students: Please email Ken Mankoff the Lat/Long of your institution and study area by the end of the day. (You can click 'email this user' in the lower left toolbox from his user page.


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?


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"


Other Ways to Sort Ourselves

Seneca - notes from yesterday?

Lists of valuable skills/knowledge learned, connections made, etc.?
